Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125778
RFE: Rhythmbox needs to *background* play requests for internet radio
Last modified: 2013-09-02 01:57:07 EDT
When playing an internet radio station from my rhythmbox playlist,
occasionally the radio station drops off the map. When I click play
for that station, rhythmbox GUI does not respond as it is probably
stuck on trying to connect to the radio station URL.
I would gather the correct solution would be to background the play
request somehow so that the GUI is still responsive. That way if 10
seconds go past and I *assume* the radio station is down, I can just
click stop...or play on another station/file.
I completely agree, but it is a very difficult problem. Basically
GStreamer needs to become asynchronous, and this involves redesigning
This bug is already filed upstream.
This will be tracked as gnome#128106
Thanks for adding the reference, I meant to put it in there.
