Bangarang is designed for your KDE powered desktop.

Fully integrated with KDE’s Nepomuk semantic desktop, Bangarang has access to indexed media information and automatically shares its own media information, rating, tags and usage statistics with other KDE powered applications.

Anything Phonon plays, Bangarang plays. Audio settings and video settings are automatically enabled if the Phonon backend supports it.

Plasma desktop widgets with MPRIS support can directly control Bangarang.

Always in control

Bangarang keeps you in control of your media experience. Recently Played, Highest Rated and Frequently Played lists are always at your fingertips.

The Info View provides helpful information when you need it. See your Highest Rated genre or Frequently Played albums and more, all updated as you browse.

Edit media information easily. Fetch artist, song, movie and TV show information from open data providers like, and Use Tags to organize your media in any way you wish.

Add bookmarks to any media file and pick up watching or listening where you left off.
