"If you have tried the new KDE Konqueror browser, you have no doubt noticed its ability to "embed" components for viewing certain files. For instance, if you click on an image file, Konqueror will embed the kview component to view it. If you click on a postscript or PDF file, the kghostview component will be embedded -- allowing you to view the file inside of Konqueror!

Most people, however, don't know how incredibly easy it is to write an embedded component (or convert an existing application). This tutorial will show you how to convert an existing KDE application (the aKtion! video player) into a full-fledged embeddedable component in only FOUR simple steps!

If you have 30 minutes to spare and the KRASH snapshot, give it a try."
