Jamendo streaming issues: Can't skip to further back in recording; Doesn't buffer enough before playing

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

When streaming a recording from Jamendo, I can't use the slider to rewind and continue playback (regardless of whether it's paused or playing when I move the slider). This is quite annoying, more so because of the other problem...

The Internet's running very slowly at the moment. If a song's bitrate is too high, so that it can't be downloaded quickly enough, it just keeps pausing erratically.

It would be nice if Rhythmbox would detect how download a sufficient buffer so that large files can be played continuously without breaks. Failing that, it would be nice if I could at least manually pause playback, rewind to the beginning, and wait until I guess enough will have been loaded before starting playback. On this line of thought, a nice feature would be an indicator of how much of the file has streamed (in the same way as, for example, the youtube.com player does).

I'm now using Intrepid 8.10 Beta. I haven't seen this happen so far (it seems to wait to buffer for long enough), but I'm not a regular user of Rhythmbox. I need to wait for the Internet to get really slow to test this.

In short, I haven't filed a bug upstream, but this may not be a problem anymore and I'll have to wait until I can test this.

If I do end up needing to file a bug upstream I'll post a link here.

closing the bug since that works correctly now, you can reopen if you get the issue again though
