Phonon Backends

Amarok plays media via Phonon multimedia framework. You can choose either VLC, Xine (Debian stable only) or GStreamer Phonon backend. VLC backend 0.3.1 or later version is currently recommended (testing/unstable only) . In case of problems, try all backends to see which works best for you.


apt-get install phonon-backend-vlc


apt-get install phonon-backend-gstreamer

Xine (Debian stable only, deprecated in later versions)

apt-get install phonon-backend-xine

For more on Phonon, see the Phonon page.
