These tutorials are now under construction, please be patient. This document has born the 28th of February 2007. In order to make the revision process clear, I introduce a confident index, 0 means that nobody except me had reviews the text. I please the reviewers to increment the counter to prove the validity of the tutorials.

If you are a Phonon developer and you realize errors, you're missing some details or a whole chapter. Please feel free to complete the followings. You can contact me on #phonon on the irc.freenode.org to give me any feedback.


Introduction

Confident Index =0

The following is based on the documentation available here Phonon API.

By getting involved with Phonon, you can choose between three different main tasks.

  • Using the Phonon API, which allows you to develop your own multimedia application. In fact any application that needs sound can take benefits form the phonon API. In the tutorials showing the API we will learn how to set up the development environment with kdevelop 3.4.
  • Hacking the Phonon library, (try to develop more this topic).
  • Writing Phonon backend, this consists in writing interfaces that allows Phonon to use different sound/video engine. This usually requires good skills and knowledge of the engine you interface.

By the way the beginners will probably be interested by the first task.
