kdetv is a KDE application that allows you to watch television on your GNU/Linux box running KDE.
Version: 0.8.9kdetv project is a KDE application that allows you to watch television on your GNU/Linux box running KDE. You probably know it as QtVision, the completely rewritten version of KWinTV.
Operating System: Linux
As the application gains stability and features on a daily basis now it has been named kdetv and can be found in the extragear software collection of KDE.
To see what has been changed and how much kdetv has improved recently, try a release, grab a snapshot (both hosted on dziegel.free.fr), or download the latest source code out of SVN.
There is a lot of activity and work going into the development of kdetv at the moment. You probably remember (or even use) an application named KWinTV. That application had a lot of problems and limitations that were hard to fix. Therefore a decision has been made to start from scratch and build a completely new application: kdetv.
You can find the latest source code of kdetv -- formerly known as QtVision -- in SVN, of course. Our SVN Info Page has more about how to get it out of CVS and compile it on your system. Note: kdetv only supports KDE3!
The plug-in architecture of kdetv makes it possible to extend the application in many different ways, and there are several plug-ins already available. For example there is an XVideo plug-in, an OSS mixer plug-in, several channel file plug-ins, etc.
Some of these plug-ins still require some work, and of course there are a lot of plug-ins that are waiting for implementation. If you want to contribute to the project, how about a nice plug-in?
