Description petrosyan 2008-05-13 17:46:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Due to a known bug in gstreamer preset radio stations
WKNC 88.1 FM (NC State) (Broadband)
WKNC 88.1 FM (NC State) (Modem)
stop working when a new song is about to start, and rhythmbox player stops
working until restarted.

Even though this is a gstreamer bug, I don't see a reason for shipping preset
radio stations in rhythmbox which are guaranteed to fail.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open rhythmbox
2. listen to WKNC 88.1 FM (NC State) (Broadband) or WKNC 88.1 FM (NC State)
(Modem) radio station.
3. wait until the current song is over and a new is about to start.

What known bug?
Comment 2 petrosyan 2008-05-14 00:50:28 EDT
It is this bug: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=320984

It seems to have been fixed in playbin2, but rhythmbox apparently is still
susceptible to this problem.

It is kind of ironic that the only format for listening to online radio that is
supposed to work in Fedora still does not work. Even for the preset radio stations.
Comment 4 petrosyan 2008-07-27 12:58:48 EDT
this bug is still present in rhythmbox-0.11.6-2.fc9.x86_64
Comment 5 Bastien Nocera 2009-03-24 11:06:23 EDT
Fixed in rhythmbox-0.12.0-2 in rawhide.
