Add meaningful error message explaining lack of MP3 support when one tries to play an MP3
Last modified: 2013-01-09 23:05:57 EST
Description of problem:
When you try to play an Mp3 either a) nothing happens, or b) you get an "ugly"
codec or missing plugin error. I propose instead having an error window that
explains briefly why Fedora doesn't support MP3 and providng a link here:
After discussion on fedora-mktg-list I'm filing this agains distribution instead
of a specific player. If it has to be a specific player I suppose rhythmbox
would be the candidate.
Or rather gstreamer since gstreamer serves as the underpinning of many of the
audio/video players. Realistically each player backend would have to be
configured, thus it would make more sense to file against each player backend.
This should be filed against the players themselves. It's also the point of the
CodecBuddy work. Moving to Totem.
Fixed with the addition of codeina in F8.
