Description of problem:
When I try to add a folder to the Rhythmbox library (note, the library
is empty) that fairly large, rhythmbox never adds it. It hangs on the
search. When you try to quit, you can't and have to send a SIGKILL to
it to stop it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.From the default install, open Rhythmbox
2.Import a folder with multiple file types along with mp3 and ogg
Actual Results: Rhythmbox hangs and will not finish adding the folder
to the library.
Expected Results: Rhythmbox should load all ogg and mp3 files (after
you've installed the gstreamer-mp3 plugins) and add them to the library.
Do you have any windows media (.wma) files in there?
Yes, there are a ton. Is this a problem, because it shouldn't be.
And, do you know if there is a gstreamer-plugin (unofficial or from
the gstreamer group) for wma files?
I fixed this problem in the gstreamer-plugins CVS. I plan to push an
errata for gstreamer-plugins for FC2.
As for a wma decoder, I believe there is a plugin in the upstream CVS.
Alrighty then. I'll wait for the errata. Thanks for the heads up.
Dag Weeirs will probably have an rpm for it that will encompass the
wma plugin pretty soon so I'll likely grab his rpms.
This should be fixed now in the latest gstreamer-plugins update.
Brian, can you confirm?
This is fixed, and with no update from the reporter in a year and a half after
the fix was applied, I'm closing the bug.
