Re: [Nautilus-list] Nautilus with ogg

To enable ogg123 to use esd (of course if it has been compiled with esd support activated, but this is the default), you need to tell ogg123 what driver it has to use to play. Just set a line like:
in a .ogg123rc file in your home or in /etc/ogg123rc to set a system wide default.

I like the abbility of nautilus to listen to MP3s by leaving the mouse

I wanted to ask if there are plans to make nautilus support this
file-type ?

There's code in Nautilus 1.0.4 that looks like it handles ogg vorbis files
in this feature. I haven't tested it myself, so you'll have to try it
yourself or find someone who has tried it to find out if it actually works.
 It looks like it uses ogg123, so make sure that's installed.

I just tried the ogg audio preview with Nautilus 1.0.4/vorbis-tools-1.0rc1
and with esd.  It runs ogg123 on the file, as seen in a ps listing, but
the sound is not played.  The ogg123 call does not specify a device. For
it to work with esd, it seems that one needs to use specify the device
with "-d esd".

I'm not sure how mpg123 knows to connect to esd.  Nautilus does not
explicitly set the sound device/server for mpg123, but it works anyway.

Perhaps mpg123 automagically detects the sound server and ogg123 doesn't?
