Bug Description


I'm using gnome3-shell with vlc player (as default player).
When I try to play a track from audio CD (selecting it via Nautilus) -
vlc always starts playing the FIRST track from CD (but not the one, which I requested).
This bug appeared since Ubuntu 13.04. (12.10 was ok).
I guess there is some issue with nautilus-vlc integration.

Best regards, Vladimir.

I am not sure if there is a defined way to pass the CD track number via the command line... VLC sports one command line parameter, but it is totally VLC-specific.

Could you please paste the verbose VLC logs?

Hello, Remi!

Sorry for delayed answer. I was at vacation.

Nautilus tries to launch vlc with the following command line:
vlc cdda://sr0/Track%203.wav

(In this example I tried to launch Track 3 from nautilus).
But it starts playing from the first track.

I'm attaching the verbose vlc log - see below.

I've looked to vlc help. There IS an option to inform vlc about the track number.
The following command line works ok.
vlc --cdda-track 3 cdda://sr0

Best regargs, Vladimir

Why is this bug expired? It still EXISTS and it is still UNRESOLVED.
I have posted the vlc log, as I was asked. Why was it left incomplete and then expired somehow?

Best regards, Vladimir

Could you test if your problem with VLC is not fixed in latest upstream version (2.1.1)?
You can install VLC 2.1.1 from ppa:dirk-computer42/c42-backport

See https://launchpad.net/~dirk-computer42/+archive/c42-backport for more info about installing.

Hello, Mantas.

I've installed vlc 2.1.1 from PPA.
Now vlc does not want to play audio CDs at all! :) (when I launch them from gnome3 file manager).

Gnome's file manager tries to send audio track URIs like that:

vlc says that it can't open an MRL.

But when I launch vlc from command line like that:
vlc cdda:///dev/sr0
Then vlc plays CD ok.

Best regards, Vladimir
