Circular Media Player 0.9.7

Happy new year!! 🙂

Circular Media Player got ported from Qt 4.8 to Qt 5.
This fixed the annoying “phonon error” when some tracks could not play. Now all tracks can play.

However, there are some issues now. First of all, the library support is broken for now, i have to rebuild the taglib (taglib is used to read the local mp3 tags when adding files in the library).
Secondly, when i compiled it using the microsoft compiler (msvc), in windows xp the application had no sound/playback. I fixed this by compiling the application with mingw instead of msvc (the release 0.9.7 is built with mingw) but now i just noticed that the application freezes of you try to play an old track (if the url of the mp3 in the history is no longer valid the application just freezes) – in the msvc build this was not a problem.

So i have to find a way to fix the playback in windows xp with the msvc build, or fix the invalid url issue with the mingw build…. or just abandon windows xp support :p … will see.
