I just took my first look at Rhythmbox to see if it could stream an MP3
over HTTP and most importantly seek within the stream. Unfortunately I
just get an error I don't understand: "Failed to create mad element;
check your installation".
Getting MP3 support in the FC1 Rhythmbox is not trivial, it involves
both recompiling Rhythmbox and installing a GStreamer plugin. In FC2
it's a bit better - you just need the GStreamer plugin.
My usage pattern is probably non-standard, however my ideal player
- stream audio files (such as MP3) over HTTP
- seek within the stream using the HTTP Range header
Hmmm. So this isn't internet radio, you're just playing a static file?
I think the gnome-vfs HTTP plugin doesn't support seeking. Once we fix
that this should Just Work to add files over http to your library.
- support HTTP Authentication
That should already be fixed in Rhythmbox 0.8.0, due to it being fixed
