Description Preston Brown 2001-11-08 09:46:49 EST
Description of Problem:
noatun believes it can take streaming media from URLs, but it can't.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
noatun 1.2.0 from kdemultimedia 2.2-10

How Reproducible:

klipper to offer to open the URL in konqueror
2. konqueror hands off the url to noatun, which is bound to this mime 
type.  Step 1 could be skipped if you simply enter the URL into 
konqueror's location field.

Actual Results:

forced to make a local copy first.  Must use %f instead of %u I believe.

noatun in the mimetypes bindings, so that xmms becomes the default.  xmms 
works just fine for all these scenarios.
