Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox And Banshee Both Crash Immediately After Playing Song / Fix It?
Jan 20, 2011
Both Banshee and Rhythmbox crash, leaving a segmentation fault in the terminal, after playing a song for less than a second. I do manage to get some sound before they crash. This problem seems to have begun only a couple of days ago after doing an update. Unfortunately I was playing playing around with moving my music collection to an NFS share around the same time as the update so I can't be sure which action it was that broke music playback.
Because both Banshee and Rhythymbox are affected and showing identical behaviour I think the problem is gstreamer. Reinstalling everything I could find in synaptic related to gstreamer had no effect.
Some general information:
- My music collection is in FLAC but other formats seem to cause the same behaviour.
- Music from an NFS share or my external USB drive causes the same behaviour
- VLC plays music from my NFS share without any problems
- Removing ubuntu-one (as suggested in some posts) did not help
- I'm using Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 x86
I've had no luck searching the interwebs for help thus far. Does anyone have any ideas?
Whenever I plug my Zune in, Rhythmbox recognizes all the songs on it but when I doubleclick on a song to play it, the song doesn't play and Rhythmbox quits. Any suggestions on how to fix it? I'm running a Dell XPS 410 with 4GB RAM and a 1.75 GHz processor.Also, I imported a CD and it plays fine.
I'm cleaning up my music library and deleting duplicates and during that process I accidentally deleted the wrong song. Is there some way to undo this process? Banshee gave me no warning, and the trash is empty. I'm assuming there's a command I can use to recover the file, but as I'm a complete noob, I need some assistance.
ok on my new laptop, banshee deletes songs other then the ones I told it to. I highlite a song or 2 I want to remove from a playlist, rightclick select remove from playlist and some seemingly randome other song is removed and the one I selected is left there.
what could cause this, am I the only one affected and is there a solution, for the moment I am using rythembox to play music.
I would prefer to use banshee as it plays nicer with my mp3 player then any other program I have tried.
When I try to open Banshee, I can see the GUI for about half a second, then it closes with "Unhandled Exception: GLib.GException: Can't recursively copy directory".I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 amd64, and had an old version of banshee installed from a few releases back (don't remember which). I deleted the banshee-1 folder in my ~/.config directly, as well as uninstalled and reinstalled with no luck. Other Mono apps (such as gnome-do) work fine.Here is the full output of "banshee --debug":
I'm looking for some pointers on a method to "transfer" the song-playing from my laptop to my PC, both running ubuntu. The use case is: I'm home listening to some song on the laptop. Then I realize how crappy the speakers are. Here's what I do *now*:
1. Stop playback on the laptop 2. Get up, go to the PC, open the music player 3. Find the same song 4. Try to find the same point in the song 5. Stop playback on the laptop 6. Start playback on the PC (the PC has good speakers)
Of course now I'm dreaming of having a "button" I push that does all this all by itself. Can anyone give me some pointers?
I had Ubuntu 10 do this same thing for me. I'm using Natty now, and it worked fine until a few days ago, then out of nowhere it does this. I'm listening to a song and it plays all the way through, but when its done it doesnt play the next song. I can select a new song but when I do, it freezes. i'm using an HPG71 if that helps.
The latest version of banshee 2.0.0 which was updated today on my computer has a bug where if you double click on song in your library it will show the wrong album art and the wrong wikipedia article. If you double click a second time it retrieves the correct album art and the correct wikipedia article. If this is the new banshee for Ubuntu 11.04 it's not going to make many people happy.
Upgraded to 10.04, fresh install. Now I can't change to a new song or go back to the previous one by using the mouse wheel over the rhythmbox icon in the task bar like I could in the previous release. I couldn't find an option for it in the plugins or preferences neither. Is there a way to get this back?
When I am playing music from my iphone through rhythmbox the iphone syncs at the beginning of every song. I dont know why it would need to do that? I have taken a look at settings and nothing really related.
When right clicking a song in Rhythmbox and selecting properties I should be able to change the name of the album for example. However I am able to select the content of the field I am not able to alter it.
When attempting to play an MP3 which is stored on my computers hard drive the song just stops playing part the way thru the song.I have had this happen on multiple computers that have Ubuntu/Lucid installed.Sometimes I get the error message that is attached,ut sometime I do not get this error message, the music just stops playing.What is causing this. I have another computer that also has Lucid installed and this does NOT happen
Ubuntu 11.04- Rhythmbox and Banshee used to work ok, but today when either started up they both promptly appear to close down. The only difference is that this morning I had pugged my iPod into the machine, though I don't know if this is relevant. I removed both programs and reinstalled them- now Rhythmbox works, but Banshee still appears and then closes down, whether or not the iPod is pugged in (now suspect this is not part of the problem).
using 11.04/Natty, Banshee is 2.0.0-2ubuntu1 from repos.Is there any way to disable gnome-screensaver when Banshee is playing?Looks like this was possible in Banshee 1.x if Banshee was fullscreen, but in Natty with 2.x , appears that screensaver still activates.
I just got a Samsung U5, and although I could drag and drop, it's not as good as syncing. I've tried using both rhythmbox and banshee to sync my music from a playlist. It only happens when I set it to MTP, that both programs tend to crash. If I set it to MCS none of them will even detect the device, but will both work fine as music players. So far, rhythmbox just freezes and won't let me do anything with the device. Banshee only syncs half of the music files and comes up with this error. LIBMTP_Send_Track_From_File_Descripto():subcall to LIBMTP_Send_FIle_From_File failed I've tried several times and it'll only add a couple of more songs.
I used Easy Tag to edit my songs' ID3 tags. Banshee reads them fine but Rhythmbox misreads them! For eg., blink 182, Blink 182, and Blink-182!!! Apparently it's because Easy Tag makes ID3v1 tags while Rhythmbox read ID3v4? That's SO stupid! What am I supposed to do now? I saw RB had a bug filed but it got closed because "it's not a problem with rhythmbox, it's a problem with ID3 tags." RB should be able to read them! That's ridiculous. So how do I fix the tags? As for Banshee, anyone else move from version 1.6 to 1.7.6? The new one crashes everytime I use it. It's simply awful. And this is supposed to lots of bugs fixed? It's the new stable version? What a joke! How do I fix this now? Or better yet, how to go back to version 1.6? ^ Never mind, I downgraded it. Still have the rhythmbox problem! I'm using Ubuntu Lucid 64 bit with Gnome. RB should be able to read them! That
I have a dsi so all of my music in .m4a I have all the codecs/gstreamers packages installed and they are all from packman it's not my sound cause I can play them in vlc but in rhythm box it says that I do not have the proper codec to play the file. Any ideas? Also I'm on 11.2 latest updates.
I just reinstalled Ubuntu 10.04 on my desktop. I am always playing music, and when I recently noticed that Rhythmbox won't play my music. It will play the first few songs, then it will just stop, and it thinks its playing, but its not.

When I try to play netradio in Rhythmbox it hangs. This only happens with Windows Media Streams, not with Ogg Streams, but as most internet radio is in Windows Media Streams this is a problem The link I am trying to play uses the mms protocol. When I try to play the link in Movie player it also just hangs, :S, but in VLC it works, but VLC is not a very handy music player.
I suspect that I would maybe need some GStreamer plugins but which? The link I try to play is this: mms://wmscr1.dr.dk/e04ch10m But I am not sure it will play outside Denmark, so you might not be able to this the link out yourself :S
For awhile now, I've been trying to set two global hotkeys to control my volume level in Banshee. Before anyone comes in here and says to use the Volume Up/Volume Down keybinds in gnome-keybinding-properties, that does not work. That controls the master volume. I'm looking for a global hotkeys that control JUST the application volume.I've been playing around now, and I think I might have found a way. Since 9.10, Pulseaudio is integrated and the default sound manager. It also allows controlling the application volume level. While changing the volume would be through Pulseaudio and not in the specific application, this would work.
My question is if there's a way to set a keybind to control a specific application's volume within Pulseaudio? Or even a way to set a keybind to the event that happens when a specific application's volume is turned up or down within Pulseaudio.
I'm running Lucid and have an annoying problem with Rhythmbox: while playing, it constantly accesses the disk, every 2-3 seconds drrrrd drrrrd. Listening to some silent music is horrible - the output of the speakers is lower than the noise of the local disk.
Maybe relevant settings in Edit->Preferences: Playback -> Network Buffer Size: 1024 kB Music -> Watch my library for new files: off
Is there anything else one can change? It can't be that difficult to read a <10MB file into memory right from the start and not touch the disk drrrrd every few seconds?! P.S. I verified by turning off the speakers and start/stop playback - the noise there on playback and not if turned off. Reliably.
I recently found that I can sync my music to my iPod without iTunes/Windows. I tried using Rhythmbox and it seemed to work. That was, until I tried playing the album I added. It just skips through the album.
Everytime Banshee tries to switch songs from a local folder it crashes with. I have tried completely removing it and reinstalling but that did nothing. Here is what I get when I run it from a terminal.
