Podcasts in Rhythmbox

I mentioned this work a couple of times in the past. It's in Fedora Rawhide, although without the browser plugin. A screencast (as is now the tradition) speaks a thousand words.


For the people using other distros, you'll need the latest devel version of Totem, and the big patch in bugzilla.

Update: Blogger seems to have broken GIF files uploading. Don't open it in EOG. Download it, and open it in your browser. Next time, I'll upload in a format that Blogger actually accepts...

Is that a GIF or a PNG?

It's a GIF screencast, but the thumbnail is PNG. Blogger just gets utterly confused.

Simone Tolotti said...

Please use a different video format the next time... ;-)

Does the mozilla plugin work with any external application?

egore said...

Quite interesting, it shows EOG isn't capable of playing animated GIFs. One more feature missing :-)

Chris said...

hah, *DO NOT* try to open this with gthumb :p (which is capable of animated gifs, but clearly tries to load the entire, raw animation into RAM)

ywwg, the browser plugin is just to avoid having the iTunes Music Store links tell you that you don't have iTunes installed. When you have it installed, it automatically redirects you to an itms:// URL, which we set in GConf as being handled by Rhythmbox.

egore, there's a bug opened, but the viewers don't seem to care too much.

Wow. Good feature. :-)

By the way, why not use Theora/Ogg for screencasts. I hope we will soon have support for APNG in screencast softwares so it can be used when you think Theora/Ogg is an overkill.

Wow, looks great!

The dialog that you present to the user is, however, a bit verbose. It contains waaay too much text. Nobody is gonna read that.

The dialogue is from epiphany, not rhythmbox.
