Rhythmbox does not ship with MTP and generic player plugin
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:18 EST
Description of problem:
Just tried f8t3 and I noticed that Rhythmbox does not ship with the mtpdevice
and the generic-player plugins although they are included in the
It would definitely be cool to have that in Fedora 8, as I own a MTP player
which I could fill with music easily then. Also, friends own "generic" players,
which could be filled easily then, too.
Rhythmbox could ship with those plugins being disabled by default.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The generic player plugin is there:
$ rpm -q rhythmbox
$ rpm -ql rhythmbox | grep generic
You won't see it in the plugins list though, as it's a builtin plugin. As for
the MTP plugin, it's too buggy and crashy for now, but it's included in the
Fedora 9 builds. It might make it in an F8 update if the crashers get fixed.
