Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Music Player Does Not Play WMAs?

Feb 12, 2011

I have noticed that when I import my music folder, it never had all the albums I have. So, when I looked, I noticed that all the songs that were not imported had the wma file extension. MP3 is fine, I did have problems with that last time.

I have a lot of good songs encoded with wma. So, how do I get Rhythmbox to play these wma sound files? I have done some searching, but it does not seem to work. I have tried using gstreamer-0.10-plugins-ugly and multiverse. I even did a restart, which was not really necessary as it has nothing to do with hardware.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Samsung P3 - Get Rhythmbox Or Any Other Music Player To Run Without Crashing When The P3 Is Connected

Jan 2, 2010

I bought a Samsung P3 portable audio player I chose it because it had bluetooth support and also appeared to support open audio formats like OGG and FLAC. The only other bluetooth player was the iPod touch. The unit mounts in Nautilus fine and I can read/write files fine. I can even play audio files from it with Movie Player. Here's the problem: I can't get Rhythmbox or any other music player to run without crashing when the P3 is connected!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Doesn't Play Music From Win7 Library Through DLNA?

Dec 13, 2010

I have a PC running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. I have about 50GB of music in the Music library. I can connect from, play to, and download music to my DLNA enabled phone (Samsung Galaxy S), everything works fine.

When I start Rhythmbox on my laptop (Ubuntu 10.10), it sees my PC (appears under "Shared" in the left panel), but the tracks won't show on the list, it seems as if it fails to retreive the list of media. No matter how long I wait, nothing happens, the tracklist remains empty forever.

I have installed the "coherence" plugin from the Software Center.

I'll attach the console output rhythmbox generates when starting up,

Sidenote: it works the other way around, I can "Play to..." Rhythmbox from Windows Media Player.

andras@ANDRAS-LAPTOP:~$ rhythmbox

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Every Music Player Wants To Stream Music?

Apr 19, 2010

I've had an awkward problem lately: every music player I use wants to instead of play music from my USB external hard drive, stream music from it. I have no idea why it suddenly started doing that. It may have been an accidental key-combo I pressed, thinking I had another window targeted and didn't bother pressing it again for my Totem music player. So I closed out of Totem in hopes that Rythmbox would work like totem used to. Well, it doesn't. It wants to stream music now.The problem with the streaming music is trivial, but here it is: I have a playlist with a little over 300 songs. I have Totem set to shuffle and repeat my music. Streaming music with it makes it just stop randomly after a few songs, and when I try to pause music and play it later it takes a good 30 seconds before it kicks back in at the beginning of the song.Like I always ask because I don't know enough to give back to the community yet, can anyone help me? Thanks.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Changes To Music In Rhythmbox Reverted?

Jun 10, 2010

I am using Rhythmbox as my music player.It is a great little app. I've got over 4,000 songs. This can be a task to manage if something were to happen to the ID tags, etc. Also I've got some rogue songs with incorrect genres. When I RC the songs and change the Genre tags, they move tot he correct Genre. However seconds later they revert back to the previous Genre.

How can I get Rhythmbox to write the changes to the song's tag so I don't have to use another program to modify the tags? I know that Windows has this functionality... not to compare... but to would also be something like this available for Ubuntu. I did install the nautilus-script-audio-converter, however I didn't see a difference after installing this.

Rhythmbox keeps re-importing items in ~/Music, even though I've changed the library to something else (/media/tunes if it makes a difference).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: IPhone And Rhythmbox - Can't Seem To Make Any Changes To That Music

Jul 4, 2010

So I've seen all the buzz about the new libimobiledevice supporting iphone well enough to get it working with rhytmbox "out of the box".

I've achieved photo sync, internet tethering, and ssh access, but I don't know about music access.. there doesn't seem to be anything happening between rhythmbox and the iphone.

Rhythmbox regocnizes the phone and plays the music on it... but I can't seem to make any changes to that music.

The phone occasionally says "sync in progress" but I haven't pushed any "sync" button as there doesn't seem to be any or any settings for automatic syncing...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Music CD Crashes Sound Juicer / RhythmBox

Mar 9, 2010

I have some seemingly interrelated issues with music CDs that I can't find threads about. Music CDs don't mount, they just spin for a bit then sit there. While a music CD is in the tray, sound juicer (Audio CD extractor) dies with a Segmentation fault. Rhythmbox dies too with this fault:

** (rhythmbox:3526): CRITICAL **: atk_object_set_name: assertion `name != NULL' failed
** (rhythmbox:3526): CRITICAL **: atk_object_set_name: assertion `name != NULL' failed
Segmentation fault
This only happens while a music CD is in the tray. All other times, the programs run fine.
