OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee Transfers Invalid Tracks To Creative Zen (MTP)?

Jan 9, 2010

I'm having a few problems with my Creative Zen and Banshee after swapping computers and upgrading to openSUSE 11.2. At first I was having problems because it wouldn't detect, but that seems to be about resolved now (although I do sometimes have to unmount it in Nautilus then disable and re-enable the MTP extension in Banshee at the moment). Now the problem appears to be that it'll transfer, but that the tracks won't play.

I'm using Banshee 1.5.2 with a custom build with this MTP on 64-bit patch added. I manually manage the device (I've got 10GB of music and an 8GB player, so I use a smart playlist that I manually sync with) and have been testing with just a few tracks at once - MP3 and M4A (iTunes+). Tracks generally copy over okay (although one MP3 in particular seems to freeze during transfer) but when I try to play them I get "There is a problem playing this audio".

I've tried Gnomad, but the tracks didn't show up at all, and I've tried Rhythmbox, but it doesn't sync album art, even for tracks I know it has the art for.Anyone had similar experiences or have any ideas? I've had all of these songs on there before, so it is annoying that it isn't working now.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee Doesn't Mount Creative Zen Player 11.2?

Dec 16, 2009

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Banshee Sometimes Won't Play Tracks

May 21, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 on a Virtualbox VM under a Windows 7 host.Sometimes Banshee won't play anything. The play button doesn't change, the progress bar doesn't start moving, and Banshee says it's idle. This doesn't always happen, sometimes I can play a few tracks fine and then suddenly in the middle of a track Banshee will stop and nothing will get it going again. Other times it happens from startup. Neither restarting the player nor rebooting the VM necessarily helps.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cover Art In Banshee For Tracks With Non ASCII Characters

Jan 16, 2010

Banshee (Version 1.5.2) doesn't seem to support cover art for tracks that include non ascii characters in any way. All manual methods that work with ascii tracks failed (folder.jpg in album folder, copying appropriately named jpg in ~/.cache/album-art, embedding jpg in mp3 metadata). This is really quite a drawback for users who don't have an English-only music collection. Is there any workaround or bugfix that I missed or do I have to go back to Rhythmbox to have non-English cover art?

Ubuntu :: Syncing IPhone With Banshee Transfers But Unseen On Device

May 2, 2011

I recently installed ubuntu and noticed somewhere that it says "Now you can say ubuntu has iDevice support out of the box". Naturally i tried, resulting in a music library with all the album artwork mixed up. I've tried to sync a couple of times, even added the repository for libimobiledevice and searched for the newest version (said it was already installed). When trying to sync with banshee (or rythmbox), it says syncing on my screen and on my iphone's screen. After syncing, my iphone updates the library, no new music is discovered. I can also add that banshee discovers 100 extra songs on my iphone.

Ubuntu :: Banshee Closes When Skipping Tracks?

Jul 18, 2011

Banshee only recently started doing this: When I play an song it works fine but if I click on skip it plays the next song for about 1-2 seconds then Banshee just closes. Also if I just let the song play (or skip to the end of the song) it also closes within 1-2 seconds of playing the next song. If I'm half way through a song I can click on another song to play it and it works fine through.I've tried disabling all my extensions but that didn't make any difference.

If I launch Banshee by typing 'banshee' into Terminal (and then play a song and press the skip button) this is what the Terminal says:

Code:
[Info 23:04:34.467] Running Banshee 2.0.0: [Ubuntu 11.04 (linux-gnu, i686) @ 2011-06-28 05:46:57 UTC][code].....

EDIT: I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 not Lubuntu, how do I change it?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rip A CD Of 16 Tracks Into 8 Tracks Mp3?

Aug 21, 2011

I use abcde to rip and encode all my music. It works great especially the option of ripping an entire cd to one flac or mp3 file, this was great for Sleep's Jerusalem. Anyway I have a cd by the Melvins (the Maggot) which they famously split each track into two tracks midway through the song. I would like to know if there is a way to rip them into "whole" tracks?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Ripping Multiple CD Tracks To One?

May 5, 2011

I am trying to rip my "Queen's Greatest Hits I" CD to my hard drive as FLAC files. For the most part, it's going well. But let's say I want to rip Track 16 (We Will Rock You) and Track 17 (We Are The Champions) as one track. (Because really, who ever listens to those tracks separately???)

What is the best CD ripper software to use to accomplish this? So far I've tried Asunder & Audex, but I don't want to download every ripper before I find one that will let me do this easily.

I was able to do what I wanted in cdparanoia at the shell:

Code:
cdparanoia 16-17 Queen_We_Will_Rock_You_We_Are_The_Champions.wav

But then I lose all the convenience of automatic tagging, etc.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Creative X-Fi Titanium Work With 11.4?

Jun 26, 2011

There is a basic driver for it. I was wondering if anyone got it to work. Or is there another card that has been used successfully, especially with recording from a microphone. I am getting poor input from the mic source. Levels are low and broken up. Extensive research has pointed to ALSA/PulseAudio not being able to fine tune all sound cards. I am using the onboard currently, an ALC262.

In the meantime I was tempted to set the priorities higher for sound in general, in other words tweak ALSA and PA. Reason being is that many across a few distros have problems when resources are squeezed, like the times when proc load is at or near 100%, for example. I do not know how to tweak sound. Does anyone know?
I still want to try the Titanium since it could be utilized in 7 (ouch) as a luxury for recording "what you hear", and for superior sound reproduction as well.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Cannot Get Banshee To Rip CD To MP3 On 11.4

May 14, 2011

I'm using Opensuse 11.4 with Gnome 3 (magic!) and have installed Banshee which is always brilliant. However, though I'm pretty sure I've installed all the requisite codecs, I cannot get it to rip my CD's to MP3. The option is not in the drop down menu, only flac, ogg, wav, and wavpack are available. Usually there's the option to rip to MP3 to accompany those options. The odd thing is it's playing other MP3's I've already got just fine.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: How To Install Banshee

Dec 7, 2009

I want to install the latest version on my system, so I go to the Banshee download site, and do the install for SuSE 11.0. That brings up the Yast2 installer, which tries to do the install, but barfs with message something like "banshee-1-backend-engine-gtkstreamer-1-1.5.1-1.1.i586 required, uninstallable providers bansheexxxx [OpenSUSE_11.0],Conflict resolution: following actions will be done" with a long list of actions.So I click on "OK-Try Again", but it doesn't DO anything, just endlessly repeats the same message.Is there some way to bypass this, and get it to actually install?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee Works Vrs. 1.6.1 In 11.3

Aug 10, 2010

I don't know, I couldn't get Banshee to work at all in 11.2... Something to do with Codecs, licensing, or related. I upgraded the system to 11.3 and then just dbl-clicked on a .wav and a .mp3 file. Big surprise - everything worked wonderfully, all with no further effort from me!

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee And High CPU Use In 11.4?

Mar 25, 2011

I'm using OpenSuse 11.4, and I was wondering if anyone else has noticed consistent high CPU utilization with banshee? By high CPU use I mean, when the application is running (whether it's idle, playing music, or scanning) CPU use on my machine is almost consistently at 100% (one core pegged).

Scanning my music library took hours ... like 3-4 hours to scan 9500 songs, and banshee was the only application running on my machine.

Rhythymbox doesn't suffer the same fate, scanning the same library took 5 minutes and CPU busy is less than 2% when it's running or playing music.

I'm running banshee 1.9.3, and I'd rather use it vs Rhythmbox.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee KDE 11.2 - Cannot Add Radio Stations?

Nov 15, 2009

I just installed OpenSuse 11.2 KDE on my Macbook and try as I might, I cannot get used to Amarok. I like Banshee and it's simple interface, plus the way it handles radio stations and the like.

I did install it using YaST and I am able to run it, but I am unable to add internet radio stations and also I am unable to play them (and other MP3 files) if I manually connect to the stream. As far as adding radio stations, I am unable to because the Genre box stays grayed out and the Save button stays grayed out because the Genre box has not been filled in (but I can't because it's grayed out). As far as playing MP3s, Banshee says I need a codec and when i click 'Search' for a suitable codec, it takes me to an OpenSuse download page with the decoder there but it's for OpenSuse 10.3, not 11.2.

These are probably simple problems with simple solutions but I can't seem to figure them out. Also, K3B says the MP3 Decoder is missing as well. I'm sure it is related to the Banshee problem too.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: No Sound In Banshee With 11.2 Gnome 2.28.0?

Dec 12, 2009

i have a fresh installation of opensuse 11.2 32-bit. my soundcard is terratec ewx 24-96. the card is detected in yast, and i can play test sound from the yast/sound panel. all volume sliders are set to maximum values (i have also double checked it in alsamixer).

i *can* hear the sound when doing this test from the gnome terminal:

speaker-test -dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav

however to make this test work:

speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav

i had to remove the asound-pulse.conf file. after removing this file the second test (speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav) works. removing this file also solved the problem of missing sound in videos videos played in firefox. the original contents of the asound-pulse.conf file was:

pcm.pulse {
type pulse
}
ctl.pulse {

[code]....

the problem is i can't play any audio files (.wav or .mp3) in banshee.

i am sure the .wav file i use while testing is ok as i can play it with aplay.

when i try playing the .wav file, banshee does not complain about any missing codecs. the slider moves as the file is being played. i have also started banshee with the --debug option, but there were no errors in the output.

so my guess is that banshee is playing the files, it's just that it sends the data to the wrong device/channell or whatever it is.

all of the gstreamer packages i have installed are from the packman repository.

when i run gstreamer-properties, the only setting on the audio tab that gives me sound is: alsa (for the plugin) and default (for the device).

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee And Mmsh Streams ?

Dec 19, 2009

Hi! This is my first post here, I'm back to openSUSE since the last version I used 10.1 and I'm really enjoying using 11.2 so far .

Banshee (or totem) can't play mmsh streams. I have packman repositorie activated and have installed all gstreammer plugins plus ffmeg and ffmpeg related gstreamer plugins and libmms0.

I can play mp3, xvid and other formats, but these streams are the only thing that does not work.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Banshee Won't Play CDs With Video

Jun 25, 2010

I want to retain Banshee on my system. However, whenever I buy a CD that also contains video, it will not play the music or video. When I try to listen to the music, it simply puts a red cross against each track. Since combining video and music is VERY common, this means I have a whole host of CDs that will not play. MS media player and VLC have no problems with these, so how can I make Banshee play them?
