[Rhythmbox-devel] Generic MP3 player support

G'day everyone,

I've finally gotten around to borrowing someones mp3 player, and
finishing the generic-mp3-player patch that I started about two months
ago. http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=325602 has the patch
(against cvs) and new files.

I've only testing this with an ipod (by disabling the ipod support), but
it should work with anything that HAL reports as an audio player using
mass-storage. If people with mp3 players can try it out, that would be

If it doesn't work for you
1) open the HAL device manager (hal-device-manager)
2) look for your device (it will have at least one partition inside it)
3) check if it has the capability "portable_audio_player"
4) go to the advanced tab and see whether
"portable_audio_player.access_method" is "storage"

If the things in (3) or (4) aren't right, then it's a HAL (well, device
info file) problem not a Rhythmbox one.

Reports of success or failure would be much appreciated.
