Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 445160
Magnatune Rhythmbox plugin should play Magnatune's Ogg Vorbis tracks
Last modified: 2008-06-01 06:45:18 EDT
Description of problem:
The Magnatune Rhythmbox plugin that came with the Fedora 9 GNU/Linux preview
live CD will cause Rhythmbox to prompt the user to get an MP3 codec. Now that
Magnatune is supplying Ogg Vorbis copies of its catalog, and now that the
Magnatune Rhythmbox plugin will default to playing these Ogg Vorbis files,
Fedora GNU/Linux should update its copy of this plugin so the user can play
Magnatune's catalog without installing anything.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Rhythmbox version 0.11.5
Rhythmbox Magnatune plugin version unknown
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Obtain and run Fedora 9 preview live CD's Rhythmbox.
2. Select Magnatune on the left side of the Rhythmbox window.
3. Double-click a Magnatune song (any song).
Get prompted to install an MP3 player codec.
Hear the selected track.
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=397097 indicates this problem has been
fixed upstream; the new version of the plugin will use the pointers to the Ogg
Vorbis tracks instead of the pointers to the MP3 tracks. Perhaps Fedora should
package the latest version of this plugin and distribute at least this new
version so that Fedora's users can enjoy Magnatune tracks in a free format (and,
as an added convenience, without installing anything new).
It would be great if this package could be included with Fedora 9 GNU/Linux.

rhythmbox at least in x86-64bit stops responding after update. This error was
reproduced after full reinstall of OS, as well as reinstall of rhythmbox from
yum. please remove update from x86-64bit versions, if possible.

You'll have to come up with better debug info than that if you want to tell me
the 2 liner patch in a python plugin caused that problem.
