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 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.

Software :: Mandriva MPEG 1 Layer 3 Codec For Rhythmbox Music Player

Apr 1, 2010

I would have never thought something so simple could be so difficult. I am trying to install the mp3 codecs for rhythm box music player and I can't find the commands to do so online or anywhere. I did this no problem in fedora 12. I just don't know where to look for Mandriva how to's. Would I just update the gstreamer plugins to get the mp3's to work?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Samsung U5 Sync Crashes Using Rhythmbox Or Banshee?

Jun 15, 2010

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.

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 :: Samsung TV , Connected Via DLNA With XP Machines Wirelessly - System Cannot Be Recognised By The TV?

Nov 8, 2010

I have a Samsung TV that can be and is connected via DLNA with my XP machines wirelessly. There is NO WAY I can make it see my Ubuntu machine though.I have the 10.04 and I have tried almost all the available programs for this OS.Name it and I have tried it: Mediatomb,ushare, PS3MediaServer and others that I cannot recall right now.These programs are installed with no errors and they look like they run correctly, their web interfaces work fine but that's all.None of them has been ever found by the TV,-but it can see the native Samsung program PC Share runnning on the XPs.What's the problem with my Ubuntu system and it cannot be recognised by the TV?It's not that it won't play this or that file. It's that it won't see the server AT ALL.

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.

They downloaded fine (although it took a while), but I cannot locate them in my music folder.I have the default folder in Rhythmbox set as ~/Music, but my downloaded music isn't in there. They play fine in Rhythmbox and my iPod, but I can't find them in the file system.Why isn't Rhythmbox putting my purchased music in the default music folder?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Samsung Intensity Only Recognized In MP3 Player

May 28, 2010

I'm currently in the process of seeing if I can finally make the switch to linux from windows. So far everything is good, except for my MP3 Player. I use a Samsung Intensity with a 16gb microsdhc card, connected to my computer through a USB. The problem is that Ubuntu doesn't recognize it. Now rhythmbox will recognize it if I have it set to MTP mode, but you ubuntu itself never mounts it. I need it to mount so I can drag and drop files into specific folders on the card. Otherwise I doubt rhythmbox will know where to put the files. The addition of another person to the linux family depends on it. Since I only want to use windows for certain games and not any more than that.

I started having problems with my Rhythmbox a few weeks back. I cannot transfer my music to my iPod when I can before. I don't know what happened. It won't even pop an error message.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Always Monitoring Music / Stop This?

May 6, 2010

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

I've changed this in both Rhythmbox and checked gconf-editor, and neither shows this directory as being monitored...

How do I stop this?

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Plays Music Through Headphones And Monitor

Jul 24, 2010

I recently installed ubuntu Luci Lynx, and, I like to listen to music whilst browsing the net. When I fired up rhythm box, I wanted to listen to music through my headphones. I started a song up, and as soon as it started playing, audio was transferring through both the monitor and my headphones. I would prefer a fix that didn't involve just having to remember to turn the volume down on my monitor every time I intend to use headphones

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Transferring Music To IPod Touch 4.2.1 In Rhythmbox

Aug 3, 2011

A while ago, my iPod Touch was on the 3.1.3 firmware and when I would drag songs onto it from within Rhythmbox it worked perfectly. The filenames would be changed to follow Apple's weird naming conventions, and they would appear in the music library on my iPod. Then, I updated to 4.2.1 and I could no longer mount the iPod (this was a known issue, and someone made a fix, but I didn't bother with it) so I wasn't able to connect to it and transfer any more songs through Rhythmbox. Recently I noticed that I can now mount the iPod again and browse it in Rhythmbox (it must've been fixed in an update). However, I can't (successfully) transfer songs to it.

When I drag songs onto the iPod, Rhythmbox displays the "transferring __ songs" status, and they get added to the iPod's list of songs shown in Rhythmbox. However, they aren't visible in the iPod's actual music library. And when I reconnect the iPod to browse the music on my iPod in Rhythmbox, the newly transferred songs are no longer there. But the space left on my iPod has definitely decreased. So I went into my iPod's iTunes_Control/Music folder and noticed that all the songs I transferred are actually there in the F## folders, but they didn't get renamed to follow Apple's naming scheme (so instead of being named something like LNXQ.mp3 they just retain whatever the old filename was). So does anyone know what's going on? Rhythmbox definitely used to be able to transfer the songs in the "correct" way which ends with their filenames being changed and the songs being added to the iPod's music library. Why isn't this happening correctly anymore? Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Mp3 Player On 10.04. Rhythmbox Fails?

Jan 12, 2011

I just want to play mp3s - podcasts - from the web. MoviePlayer which works, will not allow me to move the slider to skip to a new place in the MP3 file. RhythmBox just shuts down when I start it. So it's DOA. We know? Did I miss an update? Not supported? I'd like to play from a website, but the website has a link to the audio and a "flash" player, and I don't want to go through the mess right now to install flash.

I tried to look for FireFox plug-ins to play, but when I tried one, it installed some gstreamer stuff and then it didn't work anyway.So, do we have a working Firefox plug-in that someone can recommend to play MP3 audio directly from the web with a URL to the MP3 file? Oh and skip around in the file by clicking a slider. Failing that, and maybe also, do we have an MP3 application that plays local MP3 files and allows you to move the slider to skip around in the audio.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Better Audio Player Than Rhythmbox To Manage Podcasts?

Feb 26, 2011

I used Gpodder to manage my podcast downloads and it works well for my needs. Currently I have been using Rhythmbox to manage the handling of my podcasts in terms of storing and playing. Because I don't have access to radio (I'm in India) I only ever listen to podcasts and I play them randomly throughout the day. My needs are quite simple yet there are a couple of frustrations with Rhythmbox that I'm still looking to improve, so is there an alternative? I've tried Banshee, which isn't much of an improvement on Rhythmbox, and I use Quod Libet for music, so that one is out of the question as I want to keep that exclusively for music, not podcasts. Here are my problems:

- Rhythmbox does not remember whether a track has been played after turning the computer off (or maybe after library has been rescanned). As a consequence I end up hearing the same podcasts. Why does it do this? This is illogical.

- I can't stop Rhythmbox from playing a track that has already been played. This is available in Banshee ('Repeat Off' feature).

- When I remove a track from my library in Rhythmbox (right-hand mouseclick and select 'remove') it is only removed in that session. It comes back when I reboot the computer or rescan the library. Then...

- When I delete a track from my library, it deletes the actual file from my computer. In Foobar I was able to permanently delete the track from my library but not from my computer. Is there a compromise between this issue and the one above?

- In Banshee I cannot change the display of the Browser. It seems to be showing 'Artist' in one window and then 'Album Art', Album. Artist in the window underneath. This is a pointless display for me. Because of the way podcasts are generally labeled the most useful tag to view by is Album.

- In Rhythmbox my favourite display is where the browser displays Album (I can't change it from Artist and Album but I can live with that), and where the library displays Title | Album | Play Count | Date Added. However I can't drag columns like I can in Banshee.

To sum up - I want to permanently delete from the library tracks that have already been played; only play a track once; have the media player remember my preferences after reboot; give priority to Album in the browser; have flexibility in the library to display any column how/where I want. I have tried Banshee and Rhythmbox and need a mix of features that both offer. I'm hoping I've just over-looked some features in either player.
