xawtv should at least be there.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2003-09-26 20:31:53 UTC
xawtv should be there. Yeah the rest is obviously missing...

Comment 3 Florent B 2003-09-27 09:00:09 UTC
Ok for XawTV but the menu entry is missing.

Can a video player be added ?

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2003-09-29 21:17:04 UTC
xine/mplayer/vlc are not going in.

Over to redhat-menus for an xawtv entry. There's a separate bug already about
adding tvtime.

Comment 5 Michael Opdenacker 2004-03-30 15:23:52 UTC
Still true with FC2 test 2 with all packages installed!

In the "Sound and video" menu, there are nearly
only sound tools (except "TVtime television viewer",
and perhaps Kaboodle, which was unable to open
any of my video files).

A distribution for the general public like Fedora Core 2
definitely needs a video player in the install CDs (or DVD).

The Totem (Xine based) video player that was shipped
with Fedora Core 1 satisfied all my needs.

So, don't forget to add one!

I think the priority of this bug should be set to "High".
Could you do it if you agree, please?



Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-30 16:25:10 UTC
totem wasn't shipped in FC1.

Comment 7 Michael Opdenacker 2004-03-30 16:55:31 UTC
Hi Bill!

Oops... You're right!
That was so much time ago that I forgot that I had to get
the totem packages from somewhere else.

Thank you for correcting me!

I still hope a patent free video player can
be included in the distribution...

Both HelixPlayer and Totem are included in FC3.  HelixPlayer is
installed by default on the Desktop.
