Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 - How To Get Rhythmbox To Play IPod

Oct 10, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. I have been trying to get my iPod to play with Rhythmbox. The program reads my iPod and everything, but when i got to play a song it gives me an error saying, "Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in." What can be done to fix this error. I have been working hours on this and reading forums left and right, and still nothing has worked. I will post an image below to show what the error looks like.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Transfer Music: Rhythmbox To IPod

Jan 8, 2010

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.

Did this problem ever occurred to anyone? I even installed gtkpod but it's the same, the songs cannot be transferred without an error message whatsoever.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Not Writing Playlist To IPod?

Feb 28, 2010

I love how Rhythmbox connects quickly and easily to my iPod, and how Rhythmbox does a pretty solid job of keeping track of changes to my library, though it is large. But I cannot seem to create playlists on the iPod through Rhythmbox. When I create them, I can see them in Rhythmbox, but when I unplug the iPod and try to play them, they don't show up. I plug the iPod back in, and Rhythmbox acts like they're there - I can even play the Playlist from the iPod in Rhythmbox.

Is there something I need to do to "write" the Playlist to the iPod from Rhythmbox? It is so irritating to have to create an "on the go" playlist on the iPod and then fire up Rhythmbox and rename it what i want it to be.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Not Scrobbling IPod Properly?

May 16, 2010

I've just noticed (to my slight annoyance) that Rhythmbox's Last.fm plugin doesn't scrobble multiple plays of the same track from my iPod. If I listen to the same track several times before syncing my iPod on Rhythmbox, only one of the plays is actually scrobbled to Last.fm. Googling suggests I'm not the only person to encounter this.

I'm looking at how to report a bug for this, but in the meantime are there any other suggestions for more reliable scrobbling tools for Ubuntu? I fondly remember the days when Amarok 1.4 used to "just work" (with this and many other features), but Amarok 2 (my preferred music player) is still not doing this.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Wont Show Ipod?

Sep 10, 2010

So my brother starts complaining to me about rhythmbox not showing his Ipod. Well I come home and he's right. I restarted rhythmbox and nothing. Disconnect and connect the ipod again, nothing. Works in Banshee, but I hate using banshee right now because it's extremely crowded.

So yeah, checked the plugins area, and it says Ipod support is checked.

I also use my creative zen with rhythmbox, and it seems to be working with that. Just the Ipod isn't working with it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: IPod No Longer Recognized By RhythmBox

Jul 14, 2011

I've made some progress (at first, the ipod wasn't seen by the system at all). I've removed what appeared to be conflicting usb mounting packages and that has allowed the ipod to be recognized by the computer (i.e. the name of the ipod show up on the desktop with an ipod icon and i can manipulate files with nautilus. however, before i upgraded to lucid, rhythmbox would start automatically and I was able to manage the music through rhythmbox. now, since the upgrade, rhythmbox does not detect the presence of the ipod.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Music From Rhythmbox Not Playing On IPod Touch

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get Songs From Rhythmbox To IPod - 10.10 Maverick Meercat / Fix It?

Oct 19, 2010

Having updated to 10.10 I am having a problem getting songs from Rhythmbox to my iPod.

When i plug in the iPod it mounts fine and opens in Rhythmbox. I then transfer the songs that i just pulled off amazon/ubuntu one onto the iPod by drag and drop. In Rhythmbox, the songs appear to be on the iPod and i can even play them off the ipod while it is mounted to Rhythmbox - i.e. when i am browsing the music selection on the ipod through rythmbox the songs will play, which makes me think they are on the ipod.

The problem is that when i try and play a song off the ipod, through speakers or headphones, then nothing plays. The song simply sits silent on the ipod. The track timer doesn't move and the tracks count up at around 4 second intervals.

This simple drag and drop approach worked in 10.04.

I see that there are some problems syncing ipods in 10.10. The most relevant appears to be a bug reported here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ox/+bug/654105

This bug however appears to be about taking songs off an ipod, not putting them on. That said i think the problem might be related (about copying appropriate extensions). The issue is that the ipod organises music in such a bizarre fashion that i can't find the songs to check the extension that has come off Rhytmbox. I don't want to duplicate the bug if its the same or related.

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 :: Rhythmbox / Amarok Not Recognizing IPod Touch 3g In Lucid

May 24, 2010

when I plug in my iPod touch 3g I do get an icon for it on the desktop.However, when I open Rhythmbox, or Amarok, or Banshee or anything else, there is no icon for the iPod touch.I have tried the 'scan removable media' within Rhythmbox and it asks me to initialize a new iPod. Initializing results in the iPod making an audible bleep as if it were charging but does not result in its icon appearing in Rhythmbox. Also, I have been able to upload snapshots from the iPod onto my computer but what I need is audio syncing with the iPod.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Ipod Classic 80gb 6G Not Showing Up On Desktop Or In Rhythmbox?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Can't Play Today?

I was using Rhythmbox successfully yesterday. This morning the automatic updates said I should install some new packages, one of which was, I think, rhythmbox. Now it tells me that "The autoaudiosink element is missing" whenever I try to play something. What do I need to do in order for rhythmbox to work again?Other audio programs, e.g. Audacity, work fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Does Not Play Internetradio?

Sep 9, 2010

I run Ubuntu 10.04.1 64 bits dual boot with W7 64 b on a Toshiba L505-10M 6GB ram. All I want to do succeeds without problems, except listening to Klara Continuo (Belgian internetradio). I will have to bring in [URL].. when I create a new radio in Rhythmbox. When I press the green arrow "Play" then the system starts to buffer (bottom orange bar moves) and the radio plays, but only a few seconds. Then buffering starts again and again, I hear sound for a few seconds until everything fails. This goes on for 6 or 7 times and then Rhythmbox stops completely. Under Windows 7, I can easily listen to radio. Can anyone give me some advice on how to tackle this ? Thx for a possible clue.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Random Play In Rhythmbox ?

Jan 16, 2011

If there is a problem with random play in Rhythmbox as my experience with it is driving me daft. Normally when working I like to play music but the continual playing of one CD is too much to bear.

I had re-installed my OS and initially just dragged and dropped over all my music from my backup only to find that having set the system to randomly play music that it did not. Initially it selected from 3 CDs of the same artist. There were over 300 tracks available to select but it only chose from approx 20% of those available. No matter what I tried the selection would revert to this one artist.

Gave up on things and started everything fresh. Removed Rhythmbox and re-installed it. Took all the CDs (14) and installed them directly into it the from the devices display in the side panel.

Tried to play again only to find that this time round it would only select from one artist and from a dual CD. Previously I had a choice of 4CDs by Capercaillie. Now I have a random selection of 33 tracks by them. Much as I like the artist it was getting a bit too much to bear. Deleted all 33 tracks only to find that the next random selection stuck on another artist and as before the one CD.

This is totally beyond a joke. As my car radio often fails as the signal is blocked by the mountains I had hoped that I could use an iPod to play my music but if all it will play is the one CD it is a complete waste of time.

I would like to have matters resolved before I switch cars in May. Additionally I would like to listen to Rhythmbox when working on my system as happened before the re-installation of my OS.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Converted Ipod Videos Do Not Play?

Dec 3, 2010

I recently ran into a problem though. using mav. meerkat I have figured out how to rip dvds using acid rip, medibuntu and some ..... tutorials. Then I tried to put them on my ipod using gtkpod. when this did not work I did some research and realized the video files needed to be converted. At first I tried avidemux, it seemed to work but when i put them on my ipod (video white 80 gb) I tried to play them and the screen just went black and several seconds later was sent back to the menu. Then I tried winnff, but there was no ipod preset only a rockbox ipod preset which I tried with the same result. I then tried openshot using these parameters -ipod libx264 libfaac 1.25 Mbit/s -> 1.5 Mbit/s 128 kbit/sto160 kbit/s Quarter Square NTSC 320x24029.97HzAVCHDQuicktime 7Still same result. I have gotten purchased mp4 videos to work using gtkpod, so I am assuming it is a conversion problem. Also the converted mp4 I made using openshot plays fine on banshee player

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox And Tuxguitar Can Play At The Same Time ?

Jul 3, 2011

I really like the two programs Tuxguitar, and Rhythmbox. Tux guitar is a tablature editor, and Rhythmbox is an audio management program/audio player.

Sometimes, when reading tabs, I need to find out if something just isn't right, so I check by playing that part in Rhythmbox to see if the tab is correct. I used to be able to do this a few months ago. Then I upgraded to 11.04, and there were lots of changes with packages and stuff.

To be more specific, Whenever Tuxguitar is running, I'll try to play something in Rhythmbox, and the there will be no audio, and the "time progressed through the track" doesn't change.

How to make it so that Rhythmbox and Tuxguitar can play at the same time.

Also, I remember that in the "Tools>Settings>Sound" options, I was using a "Realtime Sequencer" at a port which had "Gervill" in it. I don't have those options available for some reason, and I have no idea how to get it back.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Won't Play First Track Of Several .mp3 Albums / Sort It?

Aug 26, 2010

I've been experiencing an odd issue since I upgraded my main desktop to Lucid - namely, that the first track on several albums doesn't appear in the Rhythmbox library. The rest of the album will show up and play just fine. I installed Exaile to see if it was just a Rhythmbox bug, and the tracks appear in the library, but will not play (it just skips through the whole track, as it would if the MP3 codec isn't installed or configured correctly). Did a clean install of Lucid yesterday, which was also of no help.

The files are all .mp3, non-VBR encoding (320kbps, IIRC...not that it should really matter). They are stored in an NTFS partition I use to share data between Windows XP and my Linux installs.

Funny thing is, the tracks show up and play just fine in XP and on OpenSuse 11.3 (KDE version). It also works fine on my laptop, which is also dual-booting XP and Lucid, with the tunes stored on the Windows partition.
