Description Leonardo La Malfa 2011-02-07 18:40:34 UTC
Version:           2.4.0 (using KDE 4.4.5) 
OS:                Linux

The video clip applet never shows any video at all. The only thing showing are just the white dots swirling around endlessly as if searching for something. I didn't find any report about this, so I was hesitant as I thought I might be doing something wrong. Although, there are no options I could have messed with.

Reproducible: Always

OS: Linux (i686) release 2.6.32-5-686
Compiler: cc

It does find videos for me, but I can't play anything, whatever I try.

It was like that for me while still on Squeeze. Since it was frozen, I still had Amarok 2.3.1, and though it retrieved a list of videos, none would play. So I waited to upgrade to 2.4 to see if the problem was on my side, before reporting the issue.
