#3514 closed defect (fixed)

Jukebox should open more video/audio file types

Reported by: HoboPrimate Owned by: kushal
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Jukebox Version: 0.95.x
Severity: Unspecified Keywords:
Cc: humitos, godiard Distribution/OS: Fedora
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


There is no activity available to open mp4 or mov files, but since jukebox uses gstreamer, which plays them with the required plugins installed, jukebox should register with them.
Totem could be a good project to see which mime-types to support.

Open problem with these is that altering mymetypes could do the trick but then, the distros should have all the proprietary codecs needed to play these kind of files.

This is a question for Jukebox maint also.

Not necessarily. If codecs aren't found, jukebox should inform the user which ones are missing. It would be up to the user to install them, manually or more tipically using their distro instructions. In Fedora this is done by adding rpmfusion repository and installing the necessary gstreamer packages, in ubuntu you enable the multiverse repo.

Also, in Fedora 17 and having Gnome installed, I was asked if I wanted to search and download for missing codecs (from the repos) when I viewed in Browse (at the end it failed to install but that's for another ticket). If I remember correctly, Ubuntu also has this (it is perhaps a gstreamer thing).

MOV mime type is missing, could you add it?
