maemo.org Bugzilla – Full Text Bug Listing
|Summary:||Allow use of current artist/song being played for IM status message|
|Product:||[Maemo Official Platform] Multimedia||Reporter:||Jason Carter <jay>|
|Status:||RESOLVED MOVED||QA Contact:||mafw-bugs|
|Priority:||High||CC:||andre_klapper, mikhail.zabaluev, quim.gil|
|Bug Depends on:||1674, 1675|
One very popular feature people love with their IM clients and music players is the ability for the IM program to know what the user's music player is playing and use it or append it to the IM program's current status message. I assume this can easily be done with D-Bus bindings. For example, I'm playing... say 1979 by The Smashing Pumpkins in the Media Player, my status message for Jabber would read as "Currently playing: 1979 by The Smashing Pumpkins".
Setting HIGH visibility.
Is it the music player's responsibility to call MissionControl API to update status message according to the current track? Actually Vagalume (lastfm client for Maemo) already has this feature for N810.
Mikhail, is this an enhancement request for rtcomm or the Media Application Framework?
(In reply to comment #3) > Mikhail, is this an enhancement request for rtcomm or the Media Application > Framework? Depends on which component is better suited for updating presence status with the track data. I'd put it to MAF.
The scope of bugs.maemo.org are bugs and only very specific and no-brainer enhancement requests. This report contains a feature request that is too generic for bugs.maemo.org.
