Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Can't Play Today?

Jan 20, 2010

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 :: 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.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Can't Play M4a Files In Rhythmbox ?

Dec 3, 2010

Rhythmbox refuses to import m4a files. Reading up on the issue, all the answers tell me that I should install certain programs, that I already have. Also, rhythmbox says it needs the gstreamer m4a acc plugin, but I have all of the gstreamer thingys installed, as with FAAC. I'm on 11.3.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Rhythmbox And Virtualbox To Play Nice With Jack?

Oct 29, 2010

Ideally, I would be able to have Jack (for supercollider) coexisting happily with other apps that use the audio system, specifically --

Rhythmbox (yes, there are other players but this one interfaces cleanly with my iPod) Oracle virtualbox (which I use for NaturallySpeaking)

The typical recommendation around the web is to configure ALSA to pipe its audio through Jack, which I tried according to [URL]. With that .asoundrc, I could choose ALSA as the driver for VLC and it output okay. But I'm not sure how to tell rhythm box to use ALSA instead of pulse audio. Worse, when I changed my virtual machine's configuration for ALSA (instead of the default pulse audio), the audio connection died -- the alsa ports disappeared from qjackctl's Connections window, and NaturallySpeaking didn't pick up any audio. This is fairly serious because I depend on dictation software to deal with an RSI (dictating English, not code of course) and I'd rather not have to stop Jack just to dictate something.

Rhythm box and virtual box both work perfectly with pulse audio connecting directly to the hardware. In the past, I've gotten pulse audio to route through Jack but it's dicey -- xruns are common and sometimes the audio gets choppy.

What next? I suppose getting the ALSA configuration right is the best thing, but early tests were not exactly encouraging.

(edit) PS I'm using virtualbox for DNS because wine failed me. Completely Plus wine's jack option for audio IO did not work with NS at all. NS works really well in virtualbox so I'm keeping that one.

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 :: Stop Rhythmbox From Auto-clearing The Play Queue?

Jun 2, 2010

Is there any way to stop Rhythmbox from clearing a song from the Play Queue once it has played it?

I searched the forums and haven't found a solution. This question had been raised before, but there was no answer given (the guy who responded confused 'playlist' with 'play queue').

Basically, whenever I queue up files to play in Rhythmbox's Play Queue (and i prefer to use that, since I operate it via Gnome-Do), they are auto-cleared as soon as I have finished playing them. I'd like to stop Rhythmbox from clearing them as I like to put them on repeat.

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 :: Dvd Drive Doesn't Play Store Bought But Does Play My Copies Of Them

Mar 10, 2010

After many days of trying to tweak Ubuntu 9.10 desktop i386. This subject will focus on my dvd drive. ...Here is what I have done, but I'm not sure what I did or still need to do, or to do different. ...

Basically the problem is, I can't play store bought DVDs, but I can play my copies of them.

When using MDPlayer that I added to Ubuntu, I can play the copies of my store bought DVDs, but not the originals. However, when using Ubuntu 9.10's movie player, it wont do anything and I'll have to do a force quit to close it.

I learned that this may because there is a repository of packages that cannot be included into the Ubuntu distribution, as I'm sure you already knew.
...Yet, Most people have worked around these issues.

I came across the Medibuntu site: [url]

Running the Terminal, I added the bash command that adds Medibuntu's repositiry to Ubuntu. It also adds Medibuntu's GPG key to the keyring.
(The sudo wget - etc etc etc --quiet update)

Then I jumped down to the... "This command should be run in the Terminal, after adding the repository:" ...And did that. (sudo sed -e 's/ etc etc etc /medibuntu.list)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Play Iplayer Video - Clicking The Play Button Does Nothing
