Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

WAV files can be added to audio project only if they are real finels and not symlinks.
In this latter case it says (something like) "NOT SUITABLE FOR AUDIO VIDEO MEDIA" (mine is in Italian).
Adding the real file works fine,

Nope. mine is a different case.
I have different versions for a WAV files in a directory.
In the very same directory I create a symlink to say which WAV file is currently the latest one.
So the symlink is in the same directory as the target file.

Thanks for the report, it has been some time without any response or feedback in this bug report and we are wondering if this is still an issue for you with the latest release of Ubuntu the Natty Narwhal, May you please test with that version and comment back if you're still having or not the issue? Please have a look at to know how to install that version.Thanks in advance.

This is not invalid, but the description is vague. The real proble is that Brasero does not follow symlinks when in "Audio CD" mode. No matter what type of a file is added, if the file is a symlink, then brasero claims an error, because it does not follow the link.

This is, I'd say, of medium annoyance, because symlinks are a perfect tool to create playlists (independent of player issues/formats like PLS or m3u), but then those have to be burned in GnomeBaker, which IMHO offers less usability.

Please give a look to this perhaps simple issue.
