With a bit of delay the Phonominals today released the second maintenance release for the Phonon VLC backend 0.6. It features overall improvements to efficiency and behavior.
- Major reduction of power and CPU consumption
- Correct HTTP user-agent identification
- Fixed a seek regression introduced in 0.6.1
- A vlc-style config can be supplied at $HOME/.config/Phonon/vlc.conf to configure VLC’s behavior
