I cannot judge the video playback experience, since it's not implemented.
Ditto the service discovery. But for audio playback, the new UI is really
terrible IMO. Basically, I don't understand what is actually supposed to work?
The basic controls are ugly and needlessly large. The rest of the window is
wasted on a useless album cover (if available). Menus and playlist are hard to
access, and "advanced" controls are missing.
Broken window syndrome. Merging this at this point only demotivates other
people from developping and testing.
