Description of problem:

Related somewhat in idea to bug 229675 :)

I'm not sure if this would be possible, but it might help folks to give ogg and
other open formats a shot after they install a fresh copy of Fedora. See the
following link for a great list of sites that provide podcasts to this type of


If you need any help selecting particular feeds to add, please let me know as
I'd love to help. 

Also consider adding a feed for Red Hat Magazine's podcasts :)
Comment 1 Alan Cox 2007-02-22 13:37:26 EST

pulls all the ogg streams from icecast hosts

magnatune.com for lots of music from independant artists and also streaming
feeds and listen before you buy

WKNC-FM NC State's Student Run Radio Station (High Quality Ogg)

Really ought to be there for local reasons don't you think ;)
Comment 2 Alan Cox 2007-02-22 13:38:41 EST

will pull some others - those using Ogg  not app/ogg...
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2007-02-22 13:42:14 EST
UK Linux must have
Comment 4 Alan Cox 2007-02-22 13:44:10 EST

Virgin Radio UK

Way ahead of you ;)

Those are the quality radio stations streaming in Ogg. It's a pretty poor list

Magnatune support (including purchase and download) is already in Rawhide. I'm
not sure we should be adding Podcasts to the default list, as they'll be cause
downloads in the background, etc.

First pass at it.

Virgin Groove doesn't seem to advertise its Ogg streams anymore, and I don't
know the genres of most of the NRK stations.

I pushed this playlist in rhythmbox 0.10.0-4.fc7. If you can think of any more
radios to add, please file a separate bug.
Comment 9 Jeremy Katz 2007-04-18 14:10:30 EDT
So on a fresh install (or with the live CD), I start up rhythmbox and don't have
any radio streams by default.  The playlist file is on the disk, it just doesn't
seem to be getting used for populating the defaults

That would be my fault. Upstream at:
