    I’m using Fedora core 6; Rhythmbox 0.9.7; and the following gstreamer stuff:

    gstreamer-0.10.10-2.fc6
    gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.5-1.lvn6
    gstreamer-tools-0.10.10-2.fc6
    gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.10-1.fc6
    gstreamer-plugins-good-0.10.4-3.fc6

    As noted in the subject, Rhythmbox can connect to my mt-daapd server (doesn’t matter whether local or remote) but it cannot play any files. I don’t have the exact Rhythmbox error/warning text something with “eos_cb”.

    Anyone else experiencing this? Know what the problem is? And, better stilly, know what the solution is?

    TIA,

    Mike

    is it 1489, or 1498? If 1489, does 1498 still break? There was some broken stuff with persistent ids and playlist counts, so I’d be interested to hear it it work on 1498. I think it should.

    Unfortunately, no. I downloaded, compiled and installed 1498 with no difference. I forgot to mention that my Fedora core 5 box (my primary server, where mt-daapd lives) has no problem connecting and playing using Rhythmbox. It worked with 1489 and still works with 1498.

    My linux workstation is running FC 6 and I tend to keep it up to date. I think it may be either an RB problem or, perhaps, gstreamer related. (?) Anyway, fwiw here’s a bunch of rhythmbox debug output:

    I think you use Ubuntu and may not be able to duplicate my environment. So, please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. (Perhaps running mt-daapd in debug mode and posting that output?)

    Thanks again,

    Mike

    I am having the problem described in this post as well. In my case, the rhythmbox log reads exactly as in the earlier post. In addition, my Nokia 800/Canola setup sees the database but fails when it tries to play a song.

    Oddly enough, my sound bridge works ok.

    Any hints?

    I know that rhythmbox doesn’t like transocded stuff, as it won’t play .wav files. Also, there are some patches in the gstreaner stuff to fix some other bug that shows up when feeding from mt-daapd, but I don’t remember offhand where those are, or what version fixed those.

    Hmmm….I’m not transcoding anything, its strictly mp3.

    I suppose I’ll have to solve the mystery of how to compile rhythmbox and see if I can work out what it thinks the problem is.

    Thanks.

    Currently, all of my music files are mp3 encoded. Just for grins I commented out the ssc_codectypes and ssc_prog directives in my mt-daapd.conf file and the result is the same. My Roku SB connects and plays just fine.


    As an aside, I’m not happy with the Roku ui – Is there a way to programmatically control the thing? The two-line LED gets cumbersome to work with; especially in contrast to RhythmBox, iTunes, etc…

    Thanks,

    I believe this must have been a Rhythmbox issue. Since I have installed Rhythmbox 0.9.8 it connects and plays just fine. 🙂

    Ron: Thank you so much!

    Well, there is iBridge which is linked to in the roku forum under “soundbridge control and integration”.
    Then there is groku, which is a gtk-based roku controll ap, wich is quite handy too, but lacks some of iBridge’s features.
    There is also a couple of windows CE / mobile apps to control the ‘bridge.

    Other than that, you could dive into and telnet to port 4444 of the soundbridge, and tap into the SCP protocol, which isnt that cumbersome, actually 😉
