Bug Description

Binary package hint: media-player-info

The syntax for separating items in a list specified for media-player-info is to use a semicolumn ';'
Some mpi files use a comma ',' instead and that breaks some user applications (e.g. Banshee).

grep , *.mpi | grep -v Vendor | grep -v Product

reveals that 3 files have wrongly formatted OutputFormats:

I did not know where to send the patches upstream so I put the fixes in a bzr branch:


revision 8 contains the fix

Sorry about that but revision 9 contains a fix for another bug whereby the Samsung Galaxy mpi file is missing an output format: audio/flac
Yes! The device supports FLAC out of the box :)
