If you check out the CVS version of rhythmbox, the Magnatune plugin
seems to fit what you need. It's pretty simple so far as the adding
songs to a source bit goes. You can also look in the mailing list
archives from back in May when I was first writing it, and getting a lot
of help.

Thanks! That's a lot of help. I've now gotten as far as being able to add songs correctly to my new source, but I've still got a few problems which I can't see a solution to from the Magnatune sources

1) I'm aiming towards being able to fix ("Add metadata cache for audio players"), which means I need to get hold of entries to store. I'm using add_uri_with_type from the db to avoid doing the heavy lifting of setting artist/title/album myself, but this means I can't seem to get the entry references back. entry_lookup_by_location doesn't appear to be doing the right thing. Anything I hand to it gets me a None back. I've tried this both from my plugin, and from the python console with a url of a file not on the media player device. I've tried both with and without "file:///" stuff on the beginning.

2) Couldn't seem to get the debug stuff working. Ended up hacking in my own debug function which looks like the following:

def debug(*args):
	print >>sys.__stderr__,"gps err: ",args

Using rb._debug did nothing at all... and I've just realised why. D'oh.. Should have switched on the -D flag.

Thanks for the help, I should hopefully have a working version of this to show soon enough....
