    No 64 Bit SonicAnalyzer, I prefer SMplayer over Kmplayer, and if you dont like Quassel, what are you proposing in its place?

  2. nowardev says:

    konversation is better than quassel. Kmplayer has a nice plugin for webkit.just go on blip.tv search for some ogv videos you can see them on rekonq or chromium with that plugin and without flash it’s only because dragon player doens’t fit well to stream ogv files. I prefer vlc like video player but kmplayer needs to get the plug on the browser. Sonic visualiser you can edit audio file with kwave . 64bit sucks a lot in hardware side so i don’t use it.
