Parole Media Player 0.9.0 released. Install Parole Xfce media player on Ubuntu and Linux Mint Systems, via PPA. Parole is a modern simple media player based on the GStreamer framework and written to fit well in the Xfce desktop. It is designed with simplicity, speed and resource usage in mind. Parole features playback of local media files, including video with subtitles support, Audio CDs, DVDs, and live streams. Parole is also extensible via plugins.
- New “mini mode”, activated from the right-click menu.
- New play and replay icons in the player content area. Clicking on these will play or replay your media (finally)!
- Most deprecated API calls have been dropped or replaced. We’re not dropping GtkStatusIcon yet, the notification area lives on in Xfce!
- Double buffering with the X11/XV video outputs has been reenabled. Ubuntu has been carrying this patch for a while now.
- The window title and content title are now set to the playing filename if no ID3 tags are found.
- Plugins can now be loaded by name instead of full path (plugin-name.so).
- The desktop file and related AppStream have been updated to the now-standard “reverse-DNS” convention (org.xfce.Parole)
- Translation updates: Asturian, Bulgarian, Catalan, Chinese (China), Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Japanese, Kazakh, Korean, Lithuanian, Norwegian Bokmål, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian
