Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] RhythmBox ID3 field plugin


I have CC'ed this email to rhythmbox-devel gnome org , which is where
most of the Rhythmbox-wizards are. They might be able to help you more
with Rhythmbox-internals. Great if you could also add your findings to
the WritingGuide. The Rhythmbox documentation is sparse.

As I've only barely scratched the surface of plugin development in
Rhythmbox, I don't think I can help you much.

Charbucks made a brilliant plugin as part of Summer of Code '08. You
should definetly check it out [1]. Perhaps you could use some of the
logic for tagging from there?
