Phonon - Multimedia API for KDE


Overview | Application Example | Backend Development

Phonon is the Multimedia API for KDE. You should evaluate whether Phonon supplies all you need before looking at frameworks like GStreamer, NMM or Helix. The range of applications goes from full featured media players and capture applications to voice/video chats.

A Basic Overview

In Phonon there are three main concepts: MediaObjects, Paths and Outputs. The MediaObjects control the playback/capture and provide the media data. MediaObjects can be connected to Outputs using Path objects which also allow the insertion of Effect objects between MediaObject and Output.
