Description Pavel Šefránek 2006-04-14 02:51:59 EDT
Description: please compile rhythmbox with tag editing support. This can be enabled by passing --enable-tag-writing to configure.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2006-04-17 11:41:41 EDT
Assigning to package. package-review is not the appropriate place for this.
Comment 2 Alex Lancaster 2006-09-07 08:26:20 EDT
This could be done if gstreamer-plugins-good >= 0.10.4 was installed it has
support for ID3v2 tag editing.  

Tag editing/viewing of ID3v2 files works even if MP3 playback is not present, so
it can work without gstreamer-plugins-{ugly,bad} (which can't be shipped with
Fedora for patent reasons).  

OGG tag editing is enabled in rhythmbox but won't work until upstream gstreamer
enables it the gstreamer-plugins-base package, see http://bugs.gnome.org/335635.
 It certainly wouldn't harm anything to enable it.

John, can you look at this ?
Comment 4 Matthias Clasen 2006-09-11 13:17:55 EDT
Alex, what exactly should I expect to see ? I have built a rhythmbox with
--enable-tag-writing, but the entries in the Properties dialog for songs are
still not editable. I have tried it for both oggs and mp3s
Comment 5 Pavel Šefránek 2006-09-17 08:35:17 EDT
I tell you one thing: Ubuntu in base form is provided as is Fedora (no
patent-loaded packages by default). And if I install appropriate plugins
(gstreamer-plugins-{ugly,bad}, maybe gstreamer-ffmpeg) everything just works.
Tag editing, nautilus sound preview (Fedora only do this for ogg files, even if
gstreamer-plugins-{ugly,bad} is installed). So, why Fedora cannot handle these
things as smoothly as Ubuntu does? Don't forget these twos are patent-free
distros in the same way.
Comment 6 John (J5) Palmieri 2006-09-18 12:37:19 EDT
I don't unserstand your comment Pavel.  No one said we weren't working on
getting tag editing working.  I enabled tag editing in the latest rhythmbox
however I belive that ogg or flac tag editing is not currently in gstreamer
(http://www.mail-archive.com/rhythmbox-devel@gnome.org/msg02900.html) so that is
not going to work until it is.
Comment 7 Pavel Šefránek 2006-09-19 12:21:05 EDT
Please do not refer to my comment #5, I just misconceived the comment #2. I take
back my previous words.

So, when you enabled the tag editing in the recent rhythmbox builds, my comment
#5 losts its sense now. Forget it, please.

But my question #2 still stands: Why does not the Nautilus's sound preview for
MP3 files work? Notice: I've installed gstreamer-plugins-{ugly,bad}. Maybe
should I fill a new bug report?
Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2006-09-19 12:59:05 EDT
Yes, please file separate bugs for separate issues. 
John, can we close this bug now ?
