Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Not Loading The Playlist?

May 30, 2010

On Ubuntu 10.04, when I select Playlist -> Load From File and select a .m3u file in Rhythmbox, the playlist shows up but is totally blank. This is an m3u file exported directly out of windows media player 12 on a different computer, and when I open it with gedit, I can see all the tracks listed. Why is it blank? I've relied on this feature for almost two years and now it's suddenly gone!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Will Not Burn Playlist?

May 19, 2010

A severe problem with Rhythmbox. You cannot burn playlist. I've looked at bug reports and they just give you the run around. Nothing in the forums except to go to something else. That is no solution to the problem. I can't believe this problem is being ignored. Nothing comes up on search.how these applications got so screwed up from one version to the other and what the cure is?

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.

I can arrange my general "music" playlist by play count (by clicking the play count button at the top, my list automatically arranges in ascending or descending order according to play count), but I can't seem to do the same in my user-generated playlist. Is there any way to do this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Mouse Locks When Loading Rhythmbox In 9.10?

May 1, 2010

I have been using Ubuntu for quite a while now and have upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 using the upgrade system.However, I now have an issue with Rhythmbox that wasn't there in 9.04 - whenever I load it the mouse stops working and the light on it starts flashing (it is a trackball).It only happens when I load Rythmbox and nothing else I have come across and happens each time. I have tried uninstalling Rhythmbox and re-installing but it is still the same.I have also searched the forum and googled the problem to no avail.I am using Ubuntu 9.10 on a Intel P4 with 2GB memory, more than sufficient hard disk space spare.

Software :: Rhythmbox Not Loading Library On Startup?

May 20, 2011

When I startup Rhythmbox music player I have no library. Whats strange is when I click edit/preferences/music and then browse to select my library location (which is already correct), apon selecting the hard drive that my library is on the whole music library suddenly loads and I don't have to re-select my library folder, I just cancel the preferences window. But if I just wait for Rhythmbox to load the library without beginning to remind it where it is, it never loads.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC Under Lucid - How To Load Playlist

Jul 17, 2010

I have used VLC player in the past to play music under certain conditions, but am having a bit of a problem. I have Googled this problem to no avail. Nowhere in the menus can I find a way to load a playlist. This playlist was generated under and saved from VLC. When consulting the documentation at the website, it says to load the playlist from the "Playlist" menu, but there is no "Playlist" menu present, as shown in the screenshots from the site. I can find the "Save Playlist to File" option under the "Media" menu, but nowhere can I find a "Load Playlist" option. I have read that the playlist can be dragged and dropped (specifically, directly onto the player), but VLC won't play the playlist. How to load a playlist into VLC?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Open VLC's Playlist From A Script / Terminal?

I'm trying to write a script that opens up vlc, opens up the playlist, and then opens up my music folder. So thus it looks like this so far;


vlc &
# command to open up vlc playlist
gnome-open /media/files/multimedia/music
However, I seem to have no clue as to how to open vlc's playlist from a command. I know the hotkey for opening the playlist is "ctrl + L" but I don't know if this is useful at all.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Copy Playlist Tracks And Rename According To Track Order?

Oct 2, 2010

I'm currently running Meerkat beta AMD64. I've been using Audacious in Ubuntu for years, before that I used XMMS.

In Windoze I used to use Winamp. Winamp has a plugin called gen_yar. Gen_yar would allow you to right-click on the playlist and copy your current playlist files in track order to any folder on your hard drive, or to a USB mounted mp3 player/thumb drive, whatever.

It had several checkboxes in the settings.

1) Rename the files adding the track number as the prefix (01_, 02_, etc).

2) Create a .m3u playlist of the tracks in that new folder using #EXTINF: instead of the full path. That way I can copy that folder to any gadget or another computer and the playlist will still play those files.

Here is the Winamp Plugin: gen_yar (Yar-matey!_Playlist_Copier) [URL] There's a link to the source code at the bottom of that site if that helps.

Here's another: Winamp Plugin Save Playlist In Order [URL]

I have yet to see this feature in any Linux media software. I've tried just about all of them. The only thing close would be drag-n-drop playlist files from Rhythmbox.

Does anybody know of a plugin for Audacious or Rhythmbox that will do this?

Alternatively, is there a Nautilus script that when I right click on a folder full of mp3s, it will create a playlist of files in that folder, and save that playlist file inside the folder (without the full paths as mentioned above)?

I hate having to boot into Virtual Box just to use Winamp to create portable playlists.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Use Mplayer / Vlc / Totem With Server-side Playlist (wsx)

Mar 27, 2011

Cannot watch second, third, etc, streams from a server-side playlist (ie, .wsx on windows media service). I have tried mplayer, vlc, totem, and xine. Xine totally fails and the other three play only the first stream as described. You can verify it works in wine by using Windows Mediaplayer v10 (`winetricks wmp10` on a clean wine prefix).

The particular example I am dealing with is not an ideal test-case as they dynamically mangle the stream's URL to prevent leeching. You can test it by either visiting $URL (below) or from command line:


MMS=$(wget "$URL" -qO- | sed -n '/src="mms/s/.*(mms:[^"]*).*/1/p')
mplayer -v "$MMS"

My research has brought up only two or three random posts citing a similar problem. All seem to be quite old (circa 2008). The most relevant is:


I have attached the output from:


mplayer -msglevel all=9 "$MMS" &>mplayer.output

You will see that mplayer is seeing an EOF and terminating (perhaps the server is too slow so mplayer's timeout triggers EOF condition?). I tired fooling with -vid/-aid flags to no avail.

Debian Multimedia :: Print Cd Label From Playlist File?

Apr 14, 2011

Something command line that can parse and output an m3u file correctly. For example, not cdlabelgen.

All I want is a simple list of songs to print out to include with any audio cds I burn to use as a label in a slim case. No fancy labels with graphics and this or that. Brasero has a cover editor but the formatting is all screwed up and playing with text to get it to print correctly is a drag.

It would be cool if there were a script, too. Something that uses mp3cd. So a fella could fire-up his termianl-fu and run $ ./handiness.sh which would:

burn an audio disc from the playlist (which mp3cd does, of course)print out a nicely formatted list of the tracks sized correctly for a slim cd case cover.

That would be cool.

EDIT: You know, like this:

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Finding Player For Microsoft ASX Playlist?

Feb 8, 2010

I wish to play a training video. When I click on the link I get a prompt to open with RealPlayer. Since I do not think I have RealPlayer installed I checked the link and it an .asx file. I guess it is a link for streaming the video. Whatever, which playing software should I install? I am aware of the multimedia tutorial on this site but am not clear on my objective as there are so many player options apparently available. It would help if I knew what I should be using to play these videos.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: MTP And RhythmBox Under 10.04

May 26, 2010

I own a Sony NWZ-E345 MP3 player that used to be seen by Rhythmbox when running 9.10 with no issues. After enabling the plugin for MTP within Rhythmbox the player was seen at connection. However, after updating to 10.04 my MP3 player is not seen at all, even though MTP support is enabled under plugins. As a matter of fact none of the media players I installed can see my player and they all support MTP. I tried some other players as a troubleshooting step. I have confirmed that libmtp8 is installed via the repository. Has anyone encountered this as well? I suspect this may be an easy reply for someone. BTW, this occurs with two different machines and nothing has changed with my MP3 player.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Won't Quit?

Jul 21, 2010

If i close rhythmbox using the close tab on the window it closes to a daemon on the application bar.This is both fine and handy but i have a problem in that even when i left-click the daemon and hit 'quit', Rythmbox closes and then appears again a few seconds later. The same happens if i 'killall Rrhythmbox' in the terminal.I can also see, in conky, that Rhythmbox is running as a process when it re-opens and i can effectively 'show Rythmbox from the daemon - so its not just a daemon problem.Can someone either tell me how to permanently quit a running instance of Rhythmbox or tell me what setting i have enabled that keeps Rhtymbox opening?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox 0.13.1 - Can't Install ?

Sep 8, 2010

I have just installed Rhythmbox via Synaptic..All is fine, however, I noticed that it's showing release version 0.12.8. After checking out [url] I noticed there is a newer stable version available. I have downloaded the tar.gz file, and followed the instructions in the INSTALL file.

The first step is to, in terminal, run ./configure before attempting to MAKE/MAKE INSTALL (won't let me do it anyways)..I run .configure, and at the end, I get this error:


This is preventing me from moving on during the installation.

I have tried


And it cannot be found.I have search Synaptic for GTK+-2.0 (for starters) and nothing specific shows up..A LOT shows up, but I'm not sure if there is one specific item I should be downloading?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Rip Using Rhythmbox

Nov 21, 2010

I upgraded to 10.4 (64bit) Ubuntu and since then have been unable to rip CD's using the procedure in the Official DocumentationUbuntu Documentation > Ubuntu 10.04 > Music, Video and Photos > Music > Extract from a CD.But when a CD is placed in the drive Rhythmbox would not run.Typing rhythmbox in a terminal (with a CD) in the drive shows the message segmentation fault.

I found in the documentation that sound-juicer was used in the ripping process and as this was not installed - so I installed this.I can now rip a CD using sound-juicer and can run rhythmbox when there is no cd in the computer but I am a little puzzled as to what is happening.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rhythmbox Keeps Deciding Can't Use It

May 6, 2011

I like Rhythmbox more than any other music player for the simple reason that it has "Genre, Artist, Album" browsing available and doesn't shove the concept of playlists in my face, when I don't care about playlists 99% of the time. So I want to keep using it.

But lately (some months ago) after trying an upgrade to 10.10, and switching back to 10.04 (unsolvable network issues), Rhythmbox has recognized that its database has been touched by a newer version, and refuses to start.

So I took the next natural step: ~$ find . -name '*rhythmbox*'. Which led me to find ~/.gconf/apps/rhythmbox, which I promptly moved to ~/.gconf/apps/rhythmbox.bak. Lo and behold, Rhythmbox decided to start on the next try. But then, after a new start, something mysterious (to me) happens, and Rhythmbox decides it can't start again. So now I'm up to something like ~/.gconf/rhythmbox.bak12 (my philosophy: why throw away any data when you are still at 10% drive usage?), and I'm hoping that there is a guru out there who can say something along the lines of, "oh yeah, just delete ~/.secretstuff/rhythmbox-please-behave-badly, and that'll take care of it".

Ubuntu Multimedia :: RhythmBox Is Not Getting CD Data

Aug 13, 2011

I have a lot of CDs and I've been uploading them onto the computer via RhythmBox to be played on RhythmBox. At first, it would get all the song titles and the artist name and the album name and all that stuff. I stopped uploading music for a week or two and started again, but now it's stopped doing getting the info, and I have to enter everything manually, and I've been doing that, but it takes a while.

What's the problem and how to I fix it? It seems it might've been related to Musicbrainz, which apparently gets album data. Did that site stop working, or did I have some free trial which ran out?Did I just happen to upload CDs with the data built in at first, and now am uploading Cs that don't have that? Not even sure it works like that.
