Version: unspecified (using KDE 4.5.3)
Dragonplayer's phonon fallback for KIO does not work properly as one cannot load sftp:// addresses for example. Phononplay from the playground repository works as expected.
Steps to Reproduce:
Simply try loading a ressource which is not natively supported by xine. sftp is a good example.
Dragon keeps loading (mouse pointer shows its busy) but does not give any result or error. Command output hasn't helped me either.
Loading of the movie.
This is needed for a pet project of mine where I have wrapped a KIO-Slave around KTorrent to make loading of magnet:// resources as seemless as http:// ones. Phonon-xine generally supports that, as I have already tested it in KHTML's video element. I can watch a magnet-referenced torrent stream of the Sintel open movie inside the HTML5 video player.
I can confirm this but, using dragon player 2.0 from kde 4.5.3 (ubuntu packages)
This is probably a duplicate of

bug 230327 ( https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=230327 , Dragon Player shows black screen trying to open a (500MB) video over samba share) ,
though this bug's title seems to describe the problem best.
