Musik/Sound Issues

Getting mp3-support in KDE for Windows is major PITA at the moment, so this section needs defintly improvement to be end-user ready.

The first step would be get a hold of all codecs and check which are the best and fit best in our purpose.

After we found the best solution the next step would be to integrate this into the installer. The codecs could be installed automaticly or the user could be given choice and also educate him of legal conseqences.

Windows 10

I was having problems updating KDE (4.7) on Windows 10, I was unable to connect to my previously used source mirror - it's gone away

I managed to solve the issue by renaming the .kde folder to old-kde then running the latest installer (1.0.0) and obtaining the latest stable packages (4.10.x at time of report)

have only run simple checks, but all seems to be working properly so far

thought I should advise of the problem and my workaround in case others have a similar issue
