I am currently using Fedora 11 KDE as my primary operating system at work, but i am having a little bit of troubles getting an audio player to work properly. I am trying to play music off of a separate primary FAT32 file system (which is my shared drive amongst all my operating systems), but when i attempt to load the files via JuK, i receive this error: cannot find demultiplexer plugin for MRL.
I have been playing around with other players as well, and it seems like the only other player which will actually load up the media on this separate partition is Banshee, but doesn't seem to want to play it.
I am trying to uninstall/reinstall banshee. It is not playing nice with my setting sine yesterday.I can't even change the login name of my last.fm account within banshee anywhere.Everytime I uninstall/reinstall it, banshee just continues to reuse my non-working settings.
On some pages it will not load, and on others it will load but i can only see up until where it has been scrolled to when the page loads (for example if you can only see half of the player when the page loads up and you scroll down, only half of it will be there the other half will be black)
So, help me through getting my audio working properly on my Toshiba Satellite A105-S2081 Laptop. I think I've been through most of the help messages and tried many things to get it working correctly. The ONLY thing that has helped is to go to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf and change model=auto to model=generic. (options snd-hda-intel power_save=10 power_save_controller=N model=generic)
I've tried model=toshiba, model=auto, model=lenovo, model=3stack, model=dallas and the laptops internal sound device disappears from the list of sound devices. If I plug in my Logitech Headset, it seems to work fine.It also seems to work fine if I boot it up into XP SP3.It does work now generally with model=generic, but not sure that everything works properly, like the headset & microphone jack. (Actually the reason I have the Logitech Headset is because the headset jack doesn't work).
I recently installed Kubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx. It is working well, but Movie Player does not work, and Dragon Player plays videos/movies but with no audio. VLC works fine. how to either remove Movie Player and Dragon Player or make them work. I tried apt-get remove mplayer but that doesn't work. If not that, I wonder if the default media player can be changed to VLC, e.g., when you click any video it will start to play using VLC?
Whenever I close Banshee by clicking the 'x' in the upper left-hand corner; the player moves to the next track and keeps on playing, just without a GUI. I had this problem in Rhythmbox as well. I'm also having the same problem with Software Center.It certainly looks like the UI/Window Manager is not always sending the application 'kill' signal to the running process. I'm currently using Gnome 2.x / Ubuntu Classic. I haven't tried this in Unity yet; but I suspect I will have the same problems there as well.
Amarok is nice, and currently the only thing I've tried that will actually play audio from network shares and not lock up. Only problem is that it doesn't seem to list my library by directory/folder structure.. only album/artist/genre or some variation thereof. Is there anything that does list by folder structure?
I am looking for music player like banshee but do not want mono . Banshee unfortunately requires mono
Obviously have not given all all the deps, but the last 7 odd ones tell you what I mean. If anybody knows of any good music player which has similar functionality as banshee lemme know. Look for two things:-
a. Should be able to play all and any music format (have all the plugins) b. Should be able to close it and have it in the system tray playing in the background.
When logged in as my normal userid to OpenSuse 11.2, I cannot get Banshee to recognize my Creative Zen MP3 player. The player does appear as a device on the desktop and I can access files on the player through that icon, but cannot get Banshee to recognize it so it can be managed in Banshee.If however, I log on as root, Banshee recognizes the device without a problem.
The log file in ~/.config/banshee-1 shows the following: libusb couldn't open USB device /dev/bus/usb/001/004: Permission denied. libusb requires write access to USB device nodes.
Had issues when 9.10 first came out with Banshee not recognizing my MP3 Player (iPod or Sanza). So, I went back to 9.04 as my music is very important. I decided to upgrade recently again to 9.10 and still having issues. Two things:
1. If I start Banshee and then attach my Sanza player, it pretty much kills Banshee. Screen goes dark and I have to kill it. It seems as if I connect my player first, then start Banshee, it picks it up and all looks good. Easy enough to do it this way, but just curious on it.
2. The Banshee is an 8GB and also has an 8GB SD card. In 9.04, this would show up in Banshee as two devices when connected so that I could copy music to/from either the native drive or the SD Card. Now, even when it connects as noted in #1, I only see the native 8GB on the Sanza... there is no SD Card listed, no ability to get to it, and neither of them show up on my desktop (in 9.04, they both showed up on desktop and in Banshee).
I am totally open to getting off the iPod... went out and bought the Sanza (which I love) specifically because of Ubuntu, open formats (ogg), etc. But, haven't been able to use it fully as I would like.
Each time when I start Banshee Media Player it crashes or I get the error message fatal error, I want to know what occurred to Banshee Media of being in a such state and what could I do to fix this problem.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and recently upgraded Banshee Media Player which I had been using for months no problem. I'm not sure what version I was using before and I'm not sure what version I'm using now. I assume 1.8.0 or higher. Here's what I get when I type 'banshee' into the terminal:
Using Natty Narwhal and have tried to duplicate CD in Banshee. Tells me that I will need to put writeable CD in Drive after copying but nothing seems to happen. Completes copying but then does not ask for CD and seems to just stop. Am I doing something wrong? I guess I could import and then burn to CD.I am not wedded to Banshee and am happy if anyone has better recommendation. Currently using Ripoff then Brasero to copy audio CD. not compressing - straight to WAV. Would like to get CD-Text on tracks if I could.
I'm using banshee/rhythmbox/amaroK on Fedora 12 (will be moving to debian lenny soon) to organize my music collection. As I don't have much space available on my MP3 player (an 8gb Creative zen) I've always used realplayer on windows to automatically convert EVERY file to 128kb MP3, as most of my files are stored as higher bitrates, which is kind of wasted on a player with 7 headphones...
My question is, how do I tell banshee/amaroK/rhythmox to convert EVERY file that gets transferred, not just the ones the player can't play? There's no checkbox anywhere like there was in reaplayer. I guess there's a script to tweak somewhere, but I have no idea where to start looking.
After some time I was trying to use banshee media player. I am given an error message: Banshee Encountered a Fatal Error Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation. The OS is Squeeze and the machine is a Netbook with Intel Atom inside.
In usr/share/banshee-1/audio-profiles/ there is an audio profile called "aac-novell", which is used to encode CDs to m4a format.
The problem is, this audio profile does not appear in Banshee itself, and I don't know what the problem could be (I've got every AAC encoder dependency installed). Has someone been able to use this audio profile?
