Amarok stopped streaming after upgrade to KDE 4.4

Hi,

I am running openSUSE 11.2. I decided to give it a try on KDE 4.4 and, after the upgrade, I’ve noticed an inconvenience regarding Amarok. It is no longer able to play from the web. I’ve captured a log (amarok --debug) from the event, but I don’t know where to post the file.

Any guidance is welcome.

Regards, Paulo.

Typically you should post the bug info upstream at
https://bugs.kde.org/

If you are sure that it is a bug. Check there first and see if anyone else has reported it.

Hm… I was just about to post similar question.

I also have kde4.4.3 and Amarok doesn’t play streams. It plays mp3 files, though, without any problems. I would say my system setup re. multimedia libs and codecs is OK since smplayer happily plays internet streams which Amarok refuses to open.

Any ideas?

Cheers,

Wicked. Same thing here. Wasn’t like that last week.

I am also having this problem with Amarok 2.3.0-71.1. I am able to play MP3’s in Amarok without any problem, but opening a stream does not produce any sound. For example, opening a last.fm stream (I am a subscriber) shows meta data about the song that should be played (lyrics, disc cover, slider bar, length, etc) but there is no sound and the slider does not move.

Using backend-xine.

Any ideas?

Did update to KDE 4.4.3 yesterday and now Amarok no longer plays
sound. YaST and desktop config both test OK for sound. If I go into
Amarok–>Settings–> Playback__>configure Phonon and test sound It
plays sound. Tried change from Xine backend to gstreamer, still no
sound.

amarok-2.3.0-71.1.x86_64

phonon-backend-xine-4.4.1-46.1.x86_64
phonon-4.4.1-44.1.x86_64
libphonon4-4.4.1-44.1.x86_64
phonon-devel-4.4.1-44.1.x86_64
phonon-backend-gstreamer-0_10-4.4.1-46.1.x86_64

I even dropped back to Amarok 2.1.1. and it will not stream either.
I wonder if it is a packman update thats bad. codecs,?

I have the same problem. From some update KDE 4.4.3 (couple days ago maybe week) Amarok don’t play stream.Some days ago morning Amarok play stream after update KDE the same day Amarok stop play radio stream.
I thought that newest update repair this problem but not.

Amarok 2.3.0
KDE 4.4.3 (with last update)
openSUSE 11.2 64bit

Now I play stream with vlc and Aqualung but this is not the same :confused:
Aha Audacious dont play stream too.

Don’t report to KDE. The bug is in openSUSE, that took a patch from the development version of Phonon to fix a problem with PulseAudio and broke xine HTTP/HTTPS support in the process.

I will submit a fix soon.

This could have been fixed four days ago with a proper bug report. I don’t even use Amarok, you are lucky I saw this today.
Meanwhile configure Phonon to use GStreamer (yes, it works, I tested) or download phonon from home:RedDwarf:branches:KDE:KDE4:Factory:Desktop once it gets published.

(In my home repo) it was yesterday. But I forgot to reenable publishing after a change.
It’s now there. Only phonon phonon-backend-xine needs to be substituted.

Anyway it isn’t in KKFD probably because at weekend less people is watching for requests. I suppose tomorrow it will be there (and the package in my home repo automatically deleted).

Thanks, patch worked great. I appreciate the quick turnaround!

Hi,

many thanks, now works normally.

many greetings, Linuxsusefan

Change appears to have worked but the script editor hangs Amarok
everytime I try to install a script I used in older versions. Do
not think its related to your fix.

Thanks.
