Hi, I've been searching for a Phonon backend that provides decent uptodate Jack support and I'm not sure where to turn to to ask about such a thing. It occurs to me that qtractor may have some code that could be used as a basis for a Phonon-Jack backend and/or perhaps Rui or someone else may have some thoughts on this seeing that qtractor, and of course qjackctl, compile and run on qt-snaphot (4.5) so is in the general ball park.
Yes I know Phonon should provide video services too but that could be provided by ffmpeg with a bit of a Qt interface for displaying video. All I know is I dislike gstreamer and I don't think xine-lib or the mplayer/vlc backends will have any "decent" jack support so perhaps a more direct Jack backend for Phonon, in conjunction with some direct video backend, might be worth looking into?
I would love to see qjackctl automatically come up when configuring the audio side of some Phonon enabled application.
