Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] Playing video in Rhythmbox

If you're that deadset against it, just run:

sudo apt-get install banshee

or grab Banshee from the Ubuntu Software Center GUI.


I have similarly poor experiences with Banshee, with it freezing up
forever when trying to read my files, failing to decode metadata that
Rhythmbox decodes properly, and constantly dropping out audio; Banshee
also doesn't provide plugin interfaces for inserting an element into
the pipeline, a functionality that Rhythmbox has had for years.
There's no sense in reigniting a music player holy war; it's been
re-hashed too many times already. The programs are what they are. Use
what you want and don't worry about what's default. Suffice to say
that the two sides (people who love Rhythmbox and people who love
Banshee) will NEVER be in agreement.
