 Phonon and the future of KDE multimedia

Interesting article about the direction KDE multimedia is going.

"Phonon's API will work no differently than any other Application Programming Interface. That is to say, it will be a layer of abstraction between KDE applications and the world of media handling. KDE apps will make calls to the list of functions that Phonon offers, and Phonon will, in turn, reroute those calls toward the chosen back end. Phonon's plugins essentially translate the calls made to Phonon's API to the APIs of other multimedia frameworks."
