Ok. I also thought checking for the device every second wasn't too

That's right, but copying it for every player is pretty stupid

Ok, once if have the code for my player working, I might.
I noticed you had a separate arch archive for iPod integration. Are
you still doing work on this, or is everything merged in the 0.9
I ask this because the iPod code doesn't compile:
RBSource *	rb_ipod_source_new		(RBShell *shell, RhythmDB *db, 
						 BonoboUIComponent *component);
needs to be changed to:
RBSource *	rb_ipod_source_new		(RBShell *shell, RhythmDB *db, 
						 GtkActionGroup *actiongroup);
