Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Sync Playlists To Iphone3
Aug 3, 2011
I'm using Banshee that comes installed on 11.04. Syncing seems to work only one of two ways: 1. sync entire library (not possible for me) or 2. sync a single banshee playlist. How do I sync say three playlists to my iphone?I've tried syncing another playlist and it wants to wipe the rest of the music from my phone.
Basically, I want to be able to cerate a playlist in Rythmbox and transfer it onto my iPhone.When I try to do this it looks like it syncs, but it never appears on my phone. Normal transferring of songs works fine. Is it possible to do this?I'm using Lucid and firmware v 3.1.3 on an iphone 2g.
Does anybody know how to get playlists in kaffeine 1.0 work (kde 4.3.5).I am unable to do such a simple thing as create a new play list with content ! (create is ok, read from the temp list ok everything seems to work, but the play list never remmember their content.)
I have recently got a new car, which as a USB port to connect either an iPOD or Storage Device. For some reason I decided to get a portable 500GB HDD to put my music on. When you plug in an iPOD you get the nice options to search by genre, artist, etc. You don't get this option with a storage device, just the option to go through the folders. The car stereo will read playlists. I'm wondering whether there's an easy way to create playlists so I get these options:
Artists > Artists A-D Artists > Artists E-G etc
Genre > Genre A-D etc
I know rhythmbox can do this manually (as can iTunes) but surely there's an easier way. I'm planning to keep adding more music so an automated process would be nice to keep the playlists refreshed. Where the playlists are saved onto my HDD rather than having to save them one by one.
I used to be able to sync my music with HTC Hero and Banshee, but when I upgraded to 2.1 quite a while back banshee seems to crash. I now have a Nexus One (Android 2.2) and that does the same. (no longer have the Hero). They both seem to crash Banshee when it gets to syncing the playlists (every time), music syncs fine. Does anyone else on 2.1 or 2.2 have this problem or is it just me? (been doing searches every now and then since the Hero update but cant find anything).
Audio sync method. "Stretches/squeezes" the audio stream to match the timestamps, the parameter is the maximum samples per second by which the audio is changed. -async 1 is a special case where only the start of the audio stream is corrected without any later correction.Searching the net makes one believe that this command is just some sort of magic.People just put it in the line and it just works. Isn't that nice?
It says nothing about how to change the TIME the audio starts syncing. Like do I want it to start 5 seconds delayed? Or what about 5 seconds sooner?What if the audio gets more out of sync as the video goes on? Can I slip it a little at a time? What? No magic?No one mentions a file that already has badly synced audio.So what -async 1 really does is simply start the audio at the beginning of the file. LIKE AS IF THAT ISN'T STANDARD PROCEDURE?So what is the exact solution to syncing a messed up video? And why can't it just do the proper "timestamp" sync in the first place?No docs, no info and you are left out in the cold.
I have some playlist I want to keep the songorder, but I have the files in another file-structure.( I have the songs ordered in folder by artist and album, cos all songs are note tagged correctly or in the same way.)I want to use the playlist with the songs in copied to an another plays, for instance an usb-stick.Is there an application who fix mass change of all links to the songs?
for instance I have in m3u-files: #EXTM3U #EXTINF:268,Salt Fare North Sea[code]....
Or Is there a way in Amarok or another music-player that can make a copy of the playlists song order and use it with new links on a usb-memory? I don't now how sync to media-player and such things work.
I've got Ubuntu One syncing a single 25MB folder on 4 computers. On one of these computers, the ubuntuone-syncdaemon process constantly pegs the CPU, using from 50-80% long after any sync-able files have been modified and successfully synced. The process is only using 8.9MB of RAM.
Specs: Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) Kernel 2.6.32-24-generic 1000.8 MB RAM Pentium 4 2.53GHz Free disk space: 280.9 GB System monitor shows 56.8% total RAM usage, 15.4% swap file usage.
Whenever I try to sync music to my iPod nano 5th gen the songs dont sync. Ive been trying to use Banshee since I couldnt delete songs using Rythembox. The problem though is that it says its syncing, the songs are transferring, and all that good stuff but when I go to look at my music theres nothing in there.
I am going through the motions of migrating from Rhythmbox to Banshee so that I can field questions about the process as Banshee takes over for Rhythmbox in Ubuntu. I have solved a silly issue about importing playlists (they must be imported from /home/username/ or you must alter the paths in each entry). But there is another issue which I am at a loss to explain.
My playlists are like mixed tapes. They are in a specific order. When I import a playlist into Banshee that order is not preserved. I have checked the files and they are definitely ordered and numbered in the playlists just as they are in Rhythmbox, but Banshee refuses to import them with the order respected regardless of the smallness of the list.
What's going on and how can I correct this?
I'd rather not have to reconstruct all of these playlists.
I use jpilot on opensuse 11.3 64bit to sync pim data with my Palm Treo 680 via bluetooth. This worked fine until today. Now I get the following error message when I try to sync: Syncing on device bt: Press the HotSync button now dlp_ReadSysInfo error Exiting with status YNC_ERROR_PI_CONNECT Finished.
The last successfull sync was on the 20th October and today is the 24th October. I did not change any settings in jpilot or on my palm device. So I guess there must have been an update of opensuse which causes this error. But I do not now how to look up the updates during this period or how to undo them. Was there an update between the 20th and the 24th Oktober, which might affect either jpilot or bluetooth functionality?
Have used DeVeDe to make DVD suitable for standalone player in lounge the player plays various formats. the problem is as the title suggests A/V not in sync. It was the first time I had ever attempted to create anything like this. Iam sure I set DeVeDe correctly, the file plays properly on the pc though.
I want to have my whole library in OGG because it's free and has a better sound quality. The thing is that i have an ipod nano 4th gen and I heard that you can't sync ogg files with an ipod. So, how can i get my music into my ipod without having two separate libraries (that would take too much space in my HDD)?
I'm trying to sync my iPhone (3G, 3.1.2) through Rhythmbox on my newly installed Lucid Lynx. While I can access and transfer music files to my iPhone, upon unmounting the iPhone doesn't update the library nor show the music. If I remount it in Rhythmbox, I can play the files from there. In my file manager I can access my iPhone, but I can't either see the iPod_Control directory nor find anything in Music or Playlists folders. BTW, on Karmic Koala I was able to update music on my iPhone, though it would not always update library.
I just got a 4th generation iPod Touch today. I plug it in to my laptop (Ubuntu 10.04), it recognizes it as a photo storage but it will not recognize it in Rhythmbox or Banshee. Therefore I cannot get any files on to it. Although when I plug it in and open Rhythmbox it makes a little noise.
I have tried installing libimobiledevice, ifuse and tried with gtkpod (basically I've read a lot of stuff about getting it to work) all to no avail. I also plugged it into Windows Vista to get it started as well as transferred a song from iTunes 10 to it, and it still doesn't do much when on my laptop.
It seems to not be mounted in the proper place for gtkpod and no fixes seemed to work. For using ifuse it does not seem to recognize that it is plugged in. I have updated all the libimobiledevice packages and still nothing.
My 2nd Gen iPod Nano isn't syncing with Rhythmbox, Banshee, or any other music program. My computer will see the iPod and mount it fine, but only as a Read-Only drive (so I can't drag files onto it). In Banshee, for example, it will see the drive, but none of the sync options work, and I can't drag music files from the library onto the iPod.and if anyone knows anything, that'd be great. Also, if you need more info, let me know. Trying to move everything into Linux and this is really the last thing I want to work to make the move final.
Well I recently tried syncing music to my iPod touch with rhythmbox and it keeps telling me the following: There is not enough space on the device to transfer the selected music, playlists.This is not true as I only have 3.2GB of music and 5.7GB space remaining on the ipod as shown below:Can anybody explain what is going on and why it wont let me sync ipod?
Banshee is, at seemingly random intervals, emptying any playlist I have imported (as .pls generated by Rhythmbox). The playlists I build in Banshee directly are not suffering this emptying problem. (There is one imported playlist, of some 30+, which has not yet emptied but I see nothing special about it.)
Take a look at this blog I found while searching for methods to sync your music with Ubuntu Natively!!!! AND it works! Take a look at the screenshot attached. STOKED. Below is a link with instructions: [URL]
I have 2 devices I'd like to be able to sync to without going into preferences and changing options each time. That is I'd like to just click "device>sync episodes" and have it sync to both devices automatically.
