Thread: Where can I get uri-list-Decoder for Amarok?

  1. #1

    Default Where can I get uri-list-Decoder for Amarok?

    Hi,

    On my openSUSE 13.1 (64bit) I installed the codecs from here: http://opensuse-guide.org/codecs.php.
    This works fine, except for the fact that I cannot play radio streams: Amarok complains about a missing plugin "text/uri-list-Decoder". Neither Amarok nor I can find this plugin anywhere.

    It must be something specific to amarok. I'm now playing some streams
    via streamtuner and audacious, but banshee also worked, when it did not
    crash (which does a lot!). I don't have amarok installed in this laptop,
    sorry.

    An "text/uri-list" file is a text file that contains a list of URIs for internet streams. You cannot open that in Amarok directly.

    Open it in a text editor, and copy/paste the URI(s) you want to use. They should open fine in Amarok when you enter them in Playlist->"Add Radio Stream".

    The errormessage popped up when I tried to play radio streams I had saved as playlists (format m3u) with an earlier version of Amarok. Some of the streams worked, some did not, even when I enterd the URI or the internet-address with "Add Radio Stream".

    In the mean time I've installed python-gstreamer-0_10-0.10.22-10.5.x86_64 and the update of today. Now it works fine, though I do not know the exact reason.

    Thank you for your help Martin

    I don't think the installation of python-gstreamer-0_10 has anything to do with it. Those are gstreamer-0_10's python bindings, their purpose is that Python programs/scripts can use gstreamer-0_10.

    Amarok is of course not written in Python (although some plugin scripts may be), and it doesn't even use gstreamer-0_10 directly, but phonon (so another possibility would have been to try phonon-backend-vlc).

    Why it didn't work and does now I can only guess.

    Somebody had a similar problem some years ago:
    http://forums.opensuse.org/showthrea...rom-Amazon-com
    His problem apparently was fixed by installing the packages python-gstreamer-0_10, gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mp3, and gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ugly, so python-gstreamer-0_10 might really have something to do with this.
    I'd like to check this. Could you maybe provide an URL where you got this error?

    Sorry, I did not save the file that documented which URIs worked and and which not .
    But I am pretty sure that http://50.7.96.210:8325 did not work.
    Of the following URIs one worked and one not, which seamed rather odd to me:
    http://stream.srg-ssr.ch/regi_bs_bl/mp3_128.m3u
    http://stream.srg-ssr.ch/m/drs1/mp3_128

    I have downloaded all address and none of new ones has the suffix ".m3u". But I just verified that the old URIs work now as well.

    Sorry, I cannot reproduce a problem with those URLs, even after uninstalling python-gstreamer-0_10.

    Maybe your plugin cache was corrupted/outdated and the installation of python-gstreamer-0_10 and the other updates caused it to get refreshed.
    That's the best explanation I can come up with at the moment, as python-gstreamer-0_10 is definitely not needed to add/play back those streams.

    Anyway, as long as it's working again, it doesn't matter.
    I just would have liked to know the real reason for the problem in case somebody else has the same problem and asks here.

    I entered that URL directly into "audacious", and it worked immediately.

    Good for you, but this doesn't help really.

    The OP had this problem with Amarok and the phonon-backend-gstreamer-0_10. Audacious does not use gstreamer.

    But apparently it's working now for him as well, and I could not reproduce a problem either.

    My intention was simply to check if the urls were good, and they were.

    Yes, saw that later.
