           Summary: Include .flv Flash Videos in KPhotoAlbum database

          Platform: Ubuntu Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: blackie kde org

Version:           3.0 (using KDE KDE 3.5.6)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages

.flv files are Flash video clips that are used by video portals to embed in websites. They do play in KDE with kaffeine and/or kmplayer though - at leat with the right codecs installed (worked instantly with Kubuntu 7.04 + w23codecs from Medibuntu). Thus KPhotoalbum should also categorize them just as other video formats. To make this work, "flv" must be included in the video extension list in Utilities::isVideo() in src/Utilities/Util.cpp.

It would be nice if this list was configurable (not necessarily per GUI, in a text file would be enough) without recompiling KPhotoalbum.

This might be related to #136955 and #145293
