Re: [Rhythmbox-devel] ReplayGain info in database

I was looking at the code to see how I can get GStreamer to transfer

not contain those values. Any chance to bring them back?

At this point, the Rhythmbox core doesn't actually store or use any
ReplayGain information directly.

The way ReplayGain currently works is that an rgvolume┬╣ GStreamer
element is added to decoding/playback pipeline; this takes the
ReplayGain info directly off the GStreamer bus where it was put by the 
demuxer or decoder element.

The only reason to store ReplayGain in the Rhythmbox database might be
to satisfy user's curiosity - it could be displayed in a column or
shown in the track properties, I guess. Not really sure if that's worth
it :)
