Ubuntu Multimedia :: Transferring M4a Files To IPod Touch With Amarok

Mar 10, 2011

I downloaded Amarok 2.4 today and am attempting to use it to sync my music to my iPod Touch. .mp3 files transfer perfectly, but for some reason any .m4a file is being reassigned a .mp4 extension and being relegated to the 'Video' app on the iPod. I do realise that an .m4a is just .aac audio in an mp4 wrapper, why Amarok and/or the iPod is deciding to treat them like a video instead? It's doing it both to my own ffmpeg-encouded .m4as as well as unprotected .m4as from the iTunes Store (relics of my time on Windows). Anyone know what might be going on with this? Ubuntu 10.10 NE, Amarok 2.4, iPod Touch 2G (... possibly 3G, but I'm pretty sure it's a 2G) running firmware 4.2.1

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Library Audiobooks - Transfer Media Player To IPod

Mar 24, 2011

As most do now my local library has a decent catalog of audiobooks, which I would like to be able to listen to on my iPod. These books can be downloaded only by using Overdrive Media Console (which is available only for Windows and Mac, and also requires Windows Media Player to work!) and iTunes if you want to transfer to an iPod.

I've searched around for Linux friendly solutions. They fall into two categories, try Wine/virtual machine/dual boot to run the required software, or give up. But pretty much everything I have found is about four years old now. Has anything changed in the last few years, or is this still pretty much the way things are? At the moment I use my girlfriend's Vista computer to download books, but I would like to be as Windows free as possible, and able to do it on my own computer.

Can anyone offer advice for being able to download audiobooks and put them on an iPod, with a minimum of non-Linux software? Relatedly, I would also be quite happy to replace the iPod firmware with Rockbox, but from what I can tell that would make library audiobooks even less accessible (so asking if this is an option is like asking for $10 after being refused $1).

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 :: Connect 2nd Gen Ipod To Xubuntu And Import Music Collection Onto The Ipod?

Aug 20, 2010

I am trying to connect my 2nd Gen Ipod to Xubuntu and import my music collection onto the Ipod. I am having real problems with this. Rhythm Box does not recognise the Ipod with the plug-in, I have tried Amarok, but each time I tried to open it, it just crashed, tried sending a bug report but that did not want to work. I have also tried Exaile with the Ipod plug-in but when you go to the device manager you can click on the Ipod but nothing happens. I have tried looking at the Exaile forums but this seems to be a problem for others as well. The Ipod mounts ok, now a bit stuck.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Ipod Touch Working With The Gtkpod Ipod Manager?

Jan 13, 2010

Its a dell e510 with about a gig of ram. I'm struggling to get my ipod touch working with the gtkpod ipod manager. At this point my ipod shows on my desktop when i connect it via usb. I cannot set up the repository for it in gtkpod because i dont know the location its mounting to. if its mounting at all. so my question is. how can i tell where my ipod is being mounted? I dont have a clue what to look for in the terminal results for "df -a"

But this is what i get:

Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/sda1 152357444 65577992 79040140 46% /
proc 0 0 0 - /proc
none 0 0 0 - /sys


Edit : Itouch = first generation 8gb Edit 2: I would like to create a sticky thread that helps new users answer questions about ipods. Will a moderator please let me know what i should include in their opinion? ex. using wine to run itunes, gtkpod and how to set it up, using mm players like banshee and songbird... what version of ubuntu works best with the ipods.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sync OGG Files With 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)?

Ubuntu :: IPod Touch Not Displaying Synced Files

Jan 11, 2011

after i solved the many other problems that plagued me as an early adopter of the new iPod touch, I took my freshly recovered device (iOS 4.1, on an ipod touch 4G) and tried syncing with Rythmbox and Banshee. It shows up on the GUI as a music player and a camera, I press sync on rythmbox or banshee and it works out. But when the sync is over and I look at my device I find no songs on there, but they're inside the itunes_control file in my ipod when I view the file contents from ubuntu.

I have succeeded in syncing with iOS 4.1 before, but an error forced me to restore my iPod. But that was when I had a jailbroken ipod with the DBversion changed to 2 as per many guides on the internet. But I thought all of these problems were solved with the new libimobiledevice 1.04.

Ubuntu :: Simple IPod Shuffle Sync To Copy MP3 Files

I have read couple articles here about ipod shuffle sync in ubuntu. Can't I just plug it into USB, mount the ipod shuffle as drive and copy my mp3 files over? What do I miss at the moment? (I haven't bought the ipod shuffe yet, that is why I can't test it right away. What is the deal with it?)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Converting AVI To MP4 For IPod?

Nov 6, 2010

The problem is the only video codec that iPod touches can playback is MP4. My Psych episodes are AVIs. I've heard of and used mencoder to change video codecs before, but I'd have no idea how to write my own script for it. What I was thinking of doing is using Avidemux to convert it? Open the AVI in adivemux Switch the video to MP4 Mpeg-4 switch the audio to MP3 lame

Honestly i'm not too firmiliar with codecs and containers but its telling me that rather than Xvid(which i think it was previously) the video codec is MP4 and the audio is MP3, and the container is AVI. First of all is this correct? Did i get the codec/container right?

Secondly will this work on my iTouch? I guess dealing with AVIs as a container is ok as long as the video codec is MP4? rather than like OGG or something? Ugh i'm so confused, i've just been rambling..

Ok. First of all do i have codecs/containers down? Am i correct with my assumptions? Second, I am correct that the CODEC is the problem, it must be MP4 to play back on the iPod? the container being AVI has nothing to do with it? (i'm basing this off of the fact that i know the only "codec" iPods can playback is MP4)

Edit: are there any other possible ways to convert an AVI to an MP4?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: IPod Touch 4th Gen With OS 4.1

Feb 22, 2011

I know there are a few threads on this already, but I don't think they apply to this type model specifically. This link says that the libgpod is not yet current with the hardware.

It also says that it works with iPod Touch 4G's with a lower OS (ex. 4.0.1). Mine came with 4.1, but even after jailbreaking, I cannot get it to sync music.

If I were to downgrade the OS (is this even advisable for this model), would I then be able to sync music in Ubuntu?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Setup An IPod

Mar 29, 2011

I received my very first iPod (iPod Shuffle) as a gift. When I connect the iPod to my Ubuntu 10.10 (64-bit) system, Rhythmbox starts and detects that the iPod hasn't been initialized yet. I haven't connected the iPod to any system running iTunes yet.

I installed Hipo, but it won't run because it can't find "org.freedesktop.Hal". Would it be safe to let Rhythmbox initialize the iPod or should I connect it to iTunes first? The plan is to use iTunes on Windows or Rhythmbox or Hipo or something on Linux to manage music on the iPod.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Syncing .ogg With An IPod ?

Jul 27, 2011

I know that iDevices do not support OGG, but on Ubuntu 10.10 when I synced my iPod Touch with Banshee, it would convert my music (all .ogg) and then sync it to the iPod without changing the original files. Now I'm on Kubuntu 11.04 (still using Banshee, I prefer it over Amarok) but when I try to sync now I just get errors saying .ogg is not supported. How can I fix this? I'd rather not convert all my music into .mp3 because (a) It goes against my free software values and (b) it would take forever.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Does Ipod Need To Be 'initialized' In Itunes?

Jan 6, 2010

I have a new 16GB nano ipod, and I "initialized" it in Rhythmbox. I added about 6GB of music into it (via Rhythmbox).When I eject and disconnect the ipod, it tells me that 6GB are occupied, but the music directory says that it's empty. Does the ipod need to be "initialized" in itunes? I have another ipod that was first used in itunes and it never gave me any issues with Rhythmbox.I have two machines running Ubuntu 9.10. I can't get itunes working with wine, and I don't have a mac or a windows machine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: World's First Invisible Ipod?

Apr 25, 2010

i'm being slightly sarcastic i think it's safe to say i'm doing something wrong but i'm just at a loss as to what. as it stands banshee - doesn't recognise ipod songbird - doesn't handle album art and overwrites ALL existing art floola - doesn't support new itunes database rhythmbox - doesn't handle album art hipo - doesn't find ipod gtkpod - doesn't find ipod yamipod - doesn't handle album art

so it's not entirely invisible, i will confess i've spent the past 2 hours trying to work out why banshee, hipo and gtkpod all don't see the ipod when songbird, rhythmbox and yamipod do. podsleuth tells me it can't find any ipods, even on a rescan - when i've got the ipod connected. if i select "properties" on the Ipod when it's connected, i get this ..[URL].. it's frustrating because it drives me back to windows every time so i can use sharepod again, and invariably start all over again re-doing all the album art - again.

i've got a backup of all my music that i took directly from the ipod - it's on a seperate hard drive, so i can only hope and pray that sharepod writes out the album art as well.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: IPod Nano 3G Unsynchable In 10.04

May 4, 2010

My iPod Nano 3G, which used to work perfectly in 9.10, doesn't seem to work in 10.04. It's detected by Ubuntu and Rhythmbox, but Rhythmbox can't see what's on it and you can't synch to it. Banshee doesn't even detect it at all. I thought iPod compatibility had been improved for this release, not gotten worse? Anyway, what can I do to troubleshoot and hopefully fix the problem?
