Firefox Ubuntu 12.04 not playing MP3 links on webpagesQuicktime?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 9, 2012
I notice if I click a hyperlink with an audio clip, it won't automatically play like it will in windows. Seems like it uses Quicktime in Windows to play the clip. I'm guessing there's not Quicktime in Ubuntu. Are there any other options?
mp3 server help
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 11, 2010
I am fresh into linux. I have spent hours trying to find a goo mp3 server software. My goal is to have all my music on my NAS, use my old Pentium 3 to play that music to my wireless speakers. I want to control this from any computer/droid etc web browser. I have tried amarok and banshee to no avail. rhythmbox sounded like the best option with rhythmweb. I can get the plugin to show up in rhythmbox (select/unselect) but cannot get any browser to display as it seems so many others can. i have tried name-desktop.local:8000 along with the ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8000. What gives? Does anyone else run a server like I want? Please help. I do like linux but in my searching I found winamp has wawi that may work. I don't want to stream only control. I might install windows instead but would like to tough out this linux trial. thanks for any help!
How to stream mp3 to an airport express using only open source
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 9, 2006
First of all, all the credits go to Jon Lech Johansen, aka DVD Jon, who released JustePort, a tool which lets you stream MPEG4 Apple Lossless files and RAW audio files to your AirPort Express. More info in his blog: http://nanocrew.net/index.php?s=justeport
(He accepts donations )
This is the only open source tool I've found to stream audio via wi-fi to the Airport Extreme base station.
What you can do with this How-to:
It's pretty basic, you can stream wirelessly single mp3 files or all the files in a given folder to your Airport Express base station (pretty basic AirTunes functionality). Hopefully this will inspire other people to make xmms/amarok/vlc plugins to accomplish more advanced functionalities.
What you need:
sudo apt-get install mono mono-gmcs
JustePort.exe: Download JustePort-0.2.tar.gz from http://nanocrew.net/sw/justeport/JustePort-0.2.tar.gz. Extract the contents somewhere, open a terminal, navigate to the folder you just extracted and compile Jus
Syncronizing Creative zen mp3 player to Banshee
location: linux.com - date: January 23, 2012
I have been trying unsucessfully to syncronize my mp3 player to Banshee to transfer the music. Everytime I mount the device, the program closes. It shows up on my laptop and even on Unity as an added device. I can open the device with Banshee,too. It showed up a couple a times for a few seconds, but closed before I had a chance to do anything. I had no problems on my desktop. I am presently using wifi, could that be the problem? Do I need ethernet? Is there any command that I can use,(I am presently learning how to use the terminal.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Revisit problem: SoX was compiled without MP3 encoding support
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 22, 2013
With Ubuntu 11.04 sox was working fine in converting .wav to .mp3 files. I switched to Debian AMD64 Squeeze and sox no longer produced mp3 output with this error: sox FAIL formats: can't open output file `Busted.mp3': SoX was compiled without MP3 encoding support
I found and applied a procedure in this old post that fixed the problem:
I ended up with sox 14.3.1 and the sox mp3 output was restored and worked fine.
The next day I received update notices shown in attached files to update sox 14.3.1-1 to sox 14.3.1-1+b1. After updating, I tested sox with the same command "sox filename.wav filename.mp3" and now have the same problem again, i.e., SoX was compiled without MP3 encoding support.
I don't fully understand the procedure that I followed in the post by andrew.46, but certainly its results worked, but were again over-written by the latest update to sox. Can anyone suggest how I can get sox working ag
Ubuntu Edgy: Skype + Mp3 = Problem with audio device
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 14, 2007
Im having problems with listening to mp3s while talking on skype, skype wont work if mp3s are playing, and mp3 wont play if skype is connected - what could this be?
My mixer is loaded, im on Gnome.
So, got it working by using OSS as "Audio Conferencing" Playback and Capture and ALSA as Music and Movies - the only problem is that OSS also sendes the ALSA output - so ppl on skype hears my music :/
mp3, disk utility, second hdd, wanda
location: linux.com - date: May 27, 2010
are there any effective ways to get Rythmbox to like mp3 or to convert and mp3 file into something that it does like? i got my hands on a second hdd for free (it's a cute 75Gb one...lol) and i'm running a disk utility on it to make sure it's ok. i would like to know the best way to install another hard drive and have fedora realize that it's there and possibly use it for space. i am assuming that the Self Test option under the disk utility does at least a half way decent job. When i try to run the self test on my main hard drive it states "FAILED (Read)" and the only thing that is red is a warning for Current Pending Sector Count. So would that tell you that you have to do a checkdisk and defrag kind of thing? and last but not least, wth is wanda? all she has said to me is just jibberish. thanks for your time guys.
Open and edit ID3 tags of MP3
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 24, 2010
Could anyone recommend me a good, reliable (i.e.: safe, official, open source), software with GUI to edit ID3 tags of MP3 files in Ubuntu? Batch editing is a must. Thank you.
mp3/id3 tagging with easyTag, best working practise?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 18, 2013
Since there seems little sign of rhythmbox's broken handling of "comment" tags being fixed (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2188626)
I am looking round for an alternative solution. EasyTag seems widely recommended, so I downloaded it.
I am struggling to find good documentation, but I am also confused as to the intended "mode of use".
My rhythmbox working practice was to put "new" mp3 files, with some basic tags assigned using a perl script + eyeD3,
into the root of my Music directory. The mp3 files are mainly capture spoken word comedy, with metadata coming
from the EPG files.
I would then edit the tags in rhythmbox, assigning episodes to "albums" (actually series), setting years and so on.
Finally, I would use fileorganizer plugin to move/make a nice filename.
Sadly, Rhythmbox tends to corrupt comment tags (where I was storing episode synopses) and fileorganizer
needs a different python version, and no long works in 13
Rename mp3 files from ID3 tag
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 8, 2011
Hi All, Im trying to auto rename badly named mp3's using info from the id3 tag. I got a nice little program called id3ren, it works fine apart from it doesn't add the track number. Cant figure how to enable this function. The track numbers are in the ID3, but it just renames to Artist/Trackname. Any other users on here?
