Really nice player, it has youtube, internet radio and plays my local sids, music and video files.
I struggled a bit with the limited screen estate though, which defaults to too big for my screen and made adding folders to a playlist a bit harder. The bottom of the file explorer is unreachable and the window seems stuck and can't be moved up or down with L shoulder like usual even when un maximized. But I managed and now try to find a way to make this work in daily usage :)
It has to beat audacious, the tube and smplayer2, almost there!! Or has it maybe already.... ?

I'll tell you in a few days

Strange, as the window should be maximized and take the entire screen, like the preview i did take on OpenPandora.
Maybe your window top bar is more bigger?

The default configuration i did has widgets locked, but you con unlock them with Shift+L or using menu Widgets->Lock widgets and move panels around to fit your needs.

There are some SIDs, like the ones using 3 SID by Samar Productions, that use too much CPU, but it only needs a few options to support older devices, like QMMP has.

Hrm... the mechanism to update youtube-dl doesn't seem to work. Pressing the "delete youtube-dl" button reports success, and the next time you try to load a youtube video it reports success downloading and installing youtube-dl, but when you actually go to play the video it still fails. There don't seem to be any relevant messages in the pndrun.out file except to note the failure to retrieve the video.

The first time it boots, it makes the config folder and copies youtube-dl and default config files to appdata/.qmplay2 folder.

I can confirm it doesn't update it, but i can still stream videos and download them, even after deleting it...

I will update youtube-dl manually for now until i found the problem.

Only some videos fail to load. Others work ok.
When one fails, something like this appears in the pndrun.out file:
Code:
QProcess: Destroyed while process ("/mnt/utmp/qmplay2/.qmplay2/youtube-dl") is still running. 
[04 May 2017 03:09:19] Cannot open: YouTube://{https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8n24CuiJAQE}
Hrm... That's odd.. I tried copying the current version of youtube-dl from the TheTube appdata folder, (TheTube plays the affected videos ok since I I used it's update youtube-dl function) but it didn't seem to make any difference, the affected videos still won't play in QMPlay2.
