Impossible to read music with an IPod when the source file is an OGG file

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

I have converted MP3 files into OGG files using xcfa. I have checked they are readable with Rhythmbox.
But when I upload them to my IPOD nano, they can not be read : my IPOD skip them as if they were empty or unreadable.
Maybe the problem comes from the automatic conversion into MP3 before uploading into the IPOD...

In fact I do not know what rhythmbox does when I drag and drop an OGG file to my IPOD, I guess it converts the file because if I have well understood, an IPOD does not support other formats than MP3. It is why I think the problem comes from here.

I will try to figure out what is the format of the file once it is uploaded to the IPOD but I do not know how to do it...

Do you need further information ?

you can run rhythmbox -d and look at the log or browse the ipod using nautilus

You are right, the files I can not read with my Ipod are converted into MPEG-4 AAC audio files (.mp4), I have browsed my Ipod with Nautilus. All those files have the comment "Lavf1d.51.10.0", maybe it is the name of the converting program.

Then, have I reported a bug already known ? In this case feel free to delete my bug report and good luck for solving the problem, I hope the fix will be available soon :D.

Thank you.
