View Full Version : [ubuntu] Where'd my music go? Did RB eat it?

I'm still running hardy, my first distro. My primary music program is rhythmbox, but I also play around with banshee. I have a large music collection. I use both to listen to music and to manage my sansa fuze. my first indication i was having a problem was when i couldn't find my temple of the dog in either player. I shrugged it off. Maybe i never ripped it - but that wouldn't make sense. But whatever. But then I tried to look up a Rancid album I know I've listened to on my Fuze. Couldn't find it on RB, and i got kind of panicked. Is my music getting eaten? Totally unacceptable.

So I check on Banshee - and there it is.

They're both directed at the same folder. So what could be the deal?

Maybe those files appear under "Missing files", this happens when Rhythmbox doesn't recognize the type of files. That's because it needs extra libraries.

I had to install this ones:

sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad

I don't use Rhythmbox anymore tho, now Amarok is my choice number one.
