Note! Codeine is now actively maintained by Ian Monroe, it goes under the new alias of Dragon Player.

A simple video-player for KDE with a focus on ergonomics and usability.

If you like polish and attention to detail, this Video-player is for you. It lacks features, but makes up for it in spades.


The backend is xine, so it plays almost all video formats that exist, and DVDs too.

The current version is 1.0.1.
