Disabling the starting/ending animation can be configured by editing
~/.kde/share/config/kmplayerrc and modify
[General Options] No Intro=0
the above option to '1'. Just add this option if it's not there yet.
It's also possible to set an alternative animation. KMPlayer will look at resp.
~/.kde/share/apps/kmplayer/exit.xml. The format has to be a supported XML file.
The intro animation doesn't have to be a short one, because it will automatically end when another source is opened. Of course for the exit animation this would be a bit annoying, however the user can always end the application twice.
A simple example of an intro, showing your favorite photo can be
<smil> <body> <img dur="indefinite" src="file:///home/koos/mum.gif" fit="meet"/> </body> </smil>
In KMPlayer's source package, in the
tests/ are some examples of SMIL that KMPlayer supports.
