double clicking mp3 opens rhythmbox instead of totem, so end user does not see codecbuddy
Last modified: 2014-01-21 18:00:40 EST
Description of problem: clicking mp3 opens rhythmbox, therefore the end user
does not see the codecbuddy (as they would if totem was mapped as the
application to open mp3's).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: every time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. double click on an mp3 PRIOR to loading any mp3 codecs
2. watch as rhythmbox opens and nothing happens.
3. scratch head.
no mp3 plays back, no codecbuddy wizard, nada.
codecbuddy should start or totem should start and then codecbuddy.
this was discussed
http://osnews.com/comment.php?news_id=18864&offset=75&rows=86&threshold=-1 and I
was asked to raise a bug, so here it is.
Rhythmbox "missing-plugins" support is planned for F9, see the upstream bug:
In the meanwhile, I'll change shared-mime-info to default to totem for most of
the media bits.
Pushed in the testing repository for zero-day update.
You can get the packages from:
shared-mime-info-0.22-4.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update shared-mime-info'
Bastien, is that really the right thing to do? Last thing I heard was (roughly)
that rhythmbox would be the music player and totem the video player (we were
talking about gaps between CD tracks, remember? I can dig up the bug against
totem if you wish ;-)). I guess it makes sense that totem would temporarily be
the default for formats handled by codeina, but should it really be the default
One isn't worse than the other. Until we have the preferred media application
doing something (see bug 358481), the default application needs to be listed in
the defaults.list and having all the audio files associated to totem isn't as
much of a problem as having only a select number of audio types.
Missing plugins support is in rhythmbox 0.11.3-2.fc9
Do you plan to issue an RB update for F8 with that version? I'd be willing to

I added it to rawhide this morning. Please test and report any bugs in another
I meant if there are F8 builds -- I don't have a Rawhide box handy.

No, because it's not ready yet.
Closing as rawhide, please reopen a new bug if there are any problems with the
missing-plugins support in Rhythmbox itself.
shared-mime-info-0.22-4.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
