Roadmap to Parole 0.3.1


  • Dialog to select subtitle from file
  • Open recent (either as default for the open-file dialog or as a separate menu-item)
  • Codec installation helper (gnome-codec-installer? or audience?)
  • Create a map of Langs/Subtitles to rename e.g. “jp” to “Japanese” (and possibly look at how Totem/Videos does it)
  • Show id3 tag info in content/video box when playing audio


  • automatically show the playlist if there is more than one item
  • Improved DVD support (chapters in playlist)
  • Open playlist-settings-menu beneath the button (not focused on mouse-pointer)
