Description Matthias Clasen 2005-11-18 05:17:26 UTC
Here is a list of issues Ray and I came across when we played around with adding
a separate menu entry for totem as `CD player`:

- When started as totem /dev/cdrom, totem takes a too long time to start
  playing the cd which is in the drive
- Starting it as totem cdda:// starts playing much faster, but leaves the 
  ugly cdda:// url in the window title
- If no cd is in the drive, both methods bring up an error dialog, which 
  we do not want
- The "Movie" menuitem in the menubar is inappropriate when using totem
  as a CD player. Can it be changed to a more neutral "File" ?
- In fullscreen mode, the controls don't vanish again after they have become
  visible once
- The "Sidebar" toggle button is a bit unusual (I would almost say ugly) for
  apps with togglable sidebars. Is there a specific reason that toggling it
  from the menus is not enough ?

So, would we patch out the CD-playing in a) gnome-media b) sound-juicer?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-11-18 20:20:20 UTC
Um, what about CDDB support?

I think we're going to switch to rhythmbox instead.

Comment 6 John Thacker 2006-04-14 20:19:28 UTC
totem now doesn't even have audio CD support at all, so I'm just going to close
this.  If anyone wants to edit the bug to refer to switching to rhythmbox
instead, feel free.
