Not sure if it is 3.9.1, or a change to KDE plasma causing it, but 3.9.1 is taking 25-50% of my CPU running under KDE plasmashell 5.12.2. Edit: the specific culprit is the QtMultimedia output plugin. Changing to the less-inspiring pulseaudio output fixes the problem.

@michaldybczak: I don't see how to do that without creating a dependency loop as audacious-qt5 would require audacious-plugins-qt5 and audacious-plugins-qt5 would require (at least as a build dep) audacious-qt5.

Shouldn't it have audacious-plugins-qt5 as a dependency? Without it it just won't start (lots of errors about missing .so files, directories, etc.). It doesn't work with other plugins versions so you have to have this with plugins-qt5 or not at all.

@shanti Adding folders/multiple files and even single files (!) doesn't work for me, no matter if I include --disable-gtk or not. Anyone got this issue?

For those interested in a useable qt5 interface, I removed --disable-gtk in PKGBUILD and now launch it with audacious --qt. Now adding folder, multiple files works with the qt interface! Best player ever!

I have been using audacious-qt5 and really appreciate having this favorite audio player with qt5. I 'am running Archlinux with KDE, and it seems I can add neither multiple files nor entire folder to my audacious playlist, only adding a single file one by one works. It's kind of frustrating, I wonder if I am missing something or anybody aware of this issue?

audacious-plugins-qt5 shouldn't be an optional dependency...

thanks @edward_81, thought I had taken care of that

Remove audacious-plugins-qt5 from dependencies, or put as optional package. In this way the makepkg enter in a dependence loop. (audacious-qt5 want audacious-plugins-qt5 want audacious-qt5...)
