  1. Hi
    I just downloaded Baranang but it does not work .
    I get this window
    “Bangarang is unable to access the Nepomuk Semantic Desktop repository. Media library, rating and play count functions will be unavailable.”
    what do I do or did wrong?
    with thanks Peter

    • Bangarang requires KDE with Nepomuk (Desktop Search) enabled and running to use Library functions like would be useful for Music, Movies and TV Shows. Nepomuk is also used to record user ratings (stars), tags, and playcounts. If Nepomuk is not enabled or you are using something other than KDE, you’ll see the window you described. You can ignore it and it’ll just function as a basic audio or video file player.

      Hope this helps!

  2. There are some people beginning to worry about the fate of Bangarang. Is it dead? Is there any activity? I don’t see much activity since the 2.0.1 release.

    • Oh no, Bangrang is very much alive. Bangarang is developed in my spare time so there will be periods of low activity as things in my life get busy (as it has this summer). As it is, I remain the sole active developer so development will ebb and flow as my time permits. This means that there are more likely to be bursts of development over time as opposed to a constant high activity. Additionally, I’m not personally a fan of development for the sake of development. I’d rather use my available time to work on useful changes.

      That said, Bangarang is, and will always be, open for development so anyone who would like to see more features or fix bugs are certainly welcome and encouraged to contribute at any time.

      Hope this helps. 🙂

      • It’s just bad that you are the sole active developer, but it’s good to hear from you! I don’t know how to code and I can’t really help you, but I support you, and use your player daily. Keep up! There are lots of happy users of Bangarang out there.

      • Thanks much for the encouragement. Trust me, it is always nice to hear! 🙂

  4. Release new version of my favorite Kde media player… Or is it dead? No… Please.

  5. […] Bangarang è un semplice ma completo media player per Kde scritto in Qt4, che deve il suo nome alla parola giamaicana per rumore, caos e disordine.  A differenza di altri player per KDE, si appoggia pienamente sui pilastri di KDE 4, ovvero quelle cose innovative su cui si basa KDE (Nepomuk, Solid, Plasma ecc…). L’innovazione di Bangarang sta nell’utilizzo, manipolazione e condivisione delle informazioni semantiche dei file con tutto KDE grazie al supporto a Nepomuk. Attraverso Bangarang potremo riprodurre musica, video, DVD, editare tag e gestire playlist, inoltre potremo dare un voto ai nostri file, cercarli e riprodurli in base al voto, al genere e alla frequenza con cui sono richiesti al sistema. La nuova release 2.0.1 corregge alcuni bug riscontrati nelle versioni precedenti e corregge il problema con  phonon-gstreamer 4.5.0. Per conoscere le novità della nuova versione 2.0.1 di Bangarang basta consultare questa pagina. […]
