Public bug reported:


In Plasma 5.16.90 the Phonon KCM was removed and got replaced with a standalone application in Phonon 4.11 ( https://github.com/KDE/phonon/commit/43efb686b2134e0973f62c7571ba913bdf928d40 ).
As Kubuntu disco/eoan ships with Version 4.10.2/3 there is no longer the possibility to change the backend between gstreamer and vlc other than only installing one of these backends (not that big of a problem) and you can no longer prioritize the outputs (like internal soundcard over hdmi) which leads in my case after a reboot always to default to hdmi instead of the soundcard.

Could you please update Phonon at least for eoan as I guess this will be
shipping Plasma 5.17?
