Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

I have 2 Pcs....

1 - ubuntu 9.04 - Rhythmbox with upnp enabled, works fine... read my Router Upnp Musics (WRT610N)
2 - Ubuntu 9.10 - Karmic - Rhythmbox with upnp enabled, dont work. But the Totem with upnp plugin works.

I Think is a bug in rhythmbox or coherence plugin... there is some debug that i send to get the real issue here ?

Thank you for your bug report, not sure about the issue though, to confirm by somebody using upnp or to send to GNOME where they might have idea on how to debug this one

I am seeing the same problem.

It looks like the coherence plugin doesn't activate properly. For example, I wasn't able to see anything advertised from rhythmbox using upnp-inspector. The problem is likely in the coherence rhythmbox plugin (part of the rhythmbox package).

Here's a better log file, with "logmode = info" in /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/upnp_coherence/ .

It doesn't look like the coherence plugin is sending out discovery responses. Standalone coherence seems to advertise fine on the same machine.

cd /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/upnp_coherence

wget "" -O

Save this in a new file , do a chmod 755 and execute it.
