General section

This section shows general information about the multimedia item and lets you set a few essential properties.



Name

This property shows and lets you change the name of the item that is displayed in the playlist drop down box, the multimedia library, and also in the KPlayer title bar when the item is loaded for playing.

Path or URL

This property shows the file path for local files or the full URL for all other files. The URL identifies the file or stream, and all other properties are attached to it. This property is read only. It is not applicable and not shown for CD tracks, DVD titles and tuner device channels.

Type

This property shows the type of the multimedia item. For a device, track, title or channel it is the device type. For other items it is the MIME type if it is known. This property is read only.

Length

This property shows the time length of the file. KPlayer tries to detect it with precision of one tenth of a second, and usually it gets it pretty close to the real length. This property is read only. It is not applicable and not shown for devices and channels.

Playlist

This property shows and lets you choose whether this item is a playlist file. MPlayer cannot automatically detect and play a playlist file, so KPlayer has to explicitly tell it to parse a file as a playlist. Auto lets KPlayer use the file extension to guess if it is a playlist file. The playlist extensions KPlayer recognizes are ram, rpm, smi, smil, asx, m3u, pls and strm. If a file that is not a playlist has one of these extensions, or a playlist file has a different extension, you will need to correctly set this property in order to be able to play the file or stream.

This property is not applicable and not shown for devices, disks, titles, tracks and channels.

Tuner devices like DVB, PVR and TV and channels available on them have some specific properties that are not applicable to other items.
