We'll nitpicking on the reviews:
- no periods at the end of the short description in schemas
- burn_tmp_folder_label still declared but not used
- the bacon_cd_widget lists all the CD devices, not only those you can
burn to. You'll need to filter on the widget side, to make sure that
only recorders appear (add a "show-recorders-only" property)

+enum {
+        PROP_0,

If you don't have any properties, those are useless. So are the empty
get/set property calls.

+rb_playlist_source_recorder_get_type (void)

Use G_DEFINE_TYPE instead (Colin, are we using gtk+ 2.4 in Rhythmbox
yet? using G_DEFINE_TYPE, and glin/gi18n.h could save quite a lot of
code (and it's an easy task for gnome-love, or a first time

You'll need to handle the absence of CD recorders better (ie. the option
should be grayed out in the menus).

"This exceeds the 80 minute length of a standard audio CD."

You don't know that the CD is 80 minutes long. Just say that it doesn't
fit on the CD, it's better than lying on purpose.

MiB is 1000 kiB, not 1024.

+        track-> = g_path_get_basename (filename);

We don't use the cdtext bit yet, but it would be better to get that info
from the metadata in Rhythmbox. It would also mean that you could avoid
non-ASCII filenames for the temporary files (shouldn't be a problem, but
better safe than sorry).


In there, why aren't you using the supplied macros, instead of the magic

The check for the RIFFWAVEfmt header should probably return
ACB_ERROR_NOT_WAVE_FORMAT if it fails (it's a "bug" in my original

What's the GINT_TO_LE for? It's probably not what you want to do (ie. I
don't think a big endian machine would like being fed a little endian

Bear in mind, that I haven't tried, or seen this patch in action, so
there might be more work needed than that. But thanks for doing that,
many have failed where you might succeed :)
