.oga/.ogv extensions should be auto-completed for media players in command line

Bug #311525 reported by Ihar Hrachyshka on 2008-12-26
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
bash-completion (Debian)
Fix Released
bash-completion (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: bash-completion

For now neither mplayer nor xine auto-complete filenames for .oga and.ogv files. These extensions are now default for OGG format files, and previous .ogg extension is only for backwards compatibility. Also .oga is the default extension for ripping audio disc contents with Rhythmbox and Sound Juicer. Please, add these extensions to the supported files list.

I think this is a possible mplayer patch:

possible Ogg extensions are now ogv, oga, ogx and ogg
(for more info see http://wiki.xiph.org/index.php/MIME_Types_and_File_Extensions)

mplayer but also other players should know about these extension for tab completion
attached patch adds those. trying to only add ogg / oga for those that can only play audio

Thank you for taking the time to make Ubuntu better. Since what you submitted is not really a bug, or a problem, but rather an idea to improve Ubuntu and the auto_completion, this should be also reported upstream.

Hi j, thanks for doing the patch. Things have changed in the upstream code a bit, but with a little tweaking I think I got the essence of what you were going for in there. Please doublecheck my work in oneiric and file new bugs if I've omitted anything necessary.

I don't know if there's still time to include it for oneiric but I've uploaded the patch in case there is; otherwise it should go in for pugnacious penguin.
