Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 447051
Rhytmbox uses a deprecated URL to download cover art
Last modified: 2009-01-09 01:31:25 EST
Description of problem:
The version of Rhythmbox availably on Fedora 8 tries to grab cover art via
http://xml.amazon.com/onca/xml3. From loading this page in a browser, you can
see that Amazon has deprecated this service/url on 31 March 2008. The result is
that no cover art is downloaded/displayed by Rhythmbox (unless you have
something already cached).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
0.11.3-7.fc8 (and probably before)
100% of the time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start rhythmbox
2. Enable cover art plugin
3. Start playing a song and watch that no cover art is downloaded or displayed
No cover art is downloaded or displayed.
Cover art is downloaded and displayed.
An ubuntu forum had a link to where this was fixed in Rhythmbox SVN.
This is still broken in Fedora 9 (rythmbox-0.11.5-9.fc9.i386)

I'm not getting the cover image after I moved to F10 Beta. There have been a few updates since then but covers still don't load.
rpm -q rhythmbox

File a new bug, this definitely has nothing to do with the problem discussed in this bug.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
