Description Aznar 2007-04-04 09:01:18 UTC
Description of problem: When I'm trying to listen to a MP3 stream on (free (beer and speach) music), Noatun crashes when trying to 
read the flux.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): I don't know, 
can't find but I'm using Fedora 7 KDE test3

How reproducible:
everytime I'm trying to listen a song on

Steps to Reproduce:
1.go on the web site
2.go on an artiste jackett
3.try to listen
Actual results: Noatun crashes, the KDE Crash Handler starts

Expected results: Noatun should nwarn us it can't handle MP3 format

Comment 1 Matthew Miller 2007-04-10 15:53:10 UTC
Bulk message: Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against
test1/2/3. This isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2007-04-30 18:21:32 UTC
yeah, fedora's kde packaging doesn't *do* mp3, so we shouldn't let noatun think
it can, then crash.

Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-06-19 20:41:39 UTC
I'll take a look and see if we can get this fixed.

In short, I plan on stripping out nonfree codecs from all kdemultimedia's
.desktop files, including:

fwiw, here's the complete list in 

and for completeness, compare/contrast:

Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2007-06-19 20:50:47 UTC
As pointed out in irc by a fedora-ninja in #fedora-devel:
[15:45] <notting> rdieter: um, shouldn't it just 'not crash'? :)
[15:45] <rdieter> notting: that too, of course.
[15:45] <notting> rdieter: what else is in the desktop file?
[15:46] <rdieter> I'll post the complete mimetype list in the bug in a sec...
[15:46] <notting> rdieter: note that we include those in (for example) totem and
rb, and let the app sort it out

Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported

maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
