An audio/video player using gstreamer (like totem but without GNOME dependencies)

Whaaw! Media Player will play any audio/video files which gstreamer can play. It supports fullscreen mode, seeking, changing video colour settings and more. It is inteded to be a basic media player similar to totem.

Dependencies: python >= 2.5, gstreamer-python >= 0.10, pygtk >= 2.10, pyxdg, gstreamer-good >= 0.10


- 'Hide Video Window' option removed since it caused way too many crashes.
- Use 'xdg-screensaver' for disabling the screensaver rather than configuring it through the config.
- Tag reading rework.
- Allow adding subtitle files to videos (Accessible through the open file dialogue, also a subtitles 'manager' is available under the 'Stream' menu).
- Fix some weird bug with the tagger producing multiple lists of tags, rather than just one.
- New translations.
- Use the same executable to run whaawmp as was used to run setup.py (for systems which have python3 as default python)
There's also a converter in the tarball, but it really doesn't work all that well. Use at your own peril.

Here is an Ubuntu .deb package:


Builded on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (Hardy Heron) with checkinstall.

Good luck for the continuation.

This is a really nice app.
Two things about it though, and one of them is a killer for me. Both should be easy fixes though.

1: The video progress is shown using a progressbar. This is highly distracting while I watch a video, especially with themes that use animated progressbar. Perhaps a GtkScale would be better suited for this.

2: The whole player and the GtkNotebooks in the preferences could use a little padding around them, maybe like 4px or something?

Great app!
