Description David Korth 2008-07-28 23:43:29 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.0.98)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages

It would be nice to have support for VGM files in Amarok. VGM files are small files that contain exact music reproductions from classic video game systems, such as the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive. Additionally, support for VGZ (GZipped VGM) would be useful, since VGM files can be compressed to very small sizes (<10k per file in some cases). Also, VGM has its own tagging format called "GD3", which is similar to ID3 tagging.

The file format specifications for VGM and GD3 are available at http://www.smspower.org/music/vgmspecs.shtml

Amarok can play what Phonon can play.
Reassigning to Phonon.

Thank you for your report.

Phonon itself does not play anything, it uses existing frameworks, so functionality would need to be implemented in those (e.g. gstreamer or vlc ...)
