Version: 2.4.1 (using KDE 4.6.2)
My favorite radio station (Die neue 107.7) recently changed their Streaming system. I just added the new URL to the playlist (http://stream.1077.net/) and played. Amarok does not fetch artist, title etc properly anmore with the new stream. All I get is “Streaming Data” for artist, title, album, etc.
It works in VLC player.
Which Phonon backend are you using? Confirmed with the Gstreamer backend
Yes, it's GStreamer
It works fine with the phonon-backend-vlc 0.4.0, reassigning to phonon-backend-gstreamer
Why do the kubuntu guys always feel like breaking everything... use pulseaudio, use gstreamer, use launchpad translations... ob, i'll try some other backend
Because KDE guys tell them too, thank you very much. PulseAudio and GStreamer is one supported setup for Linux.
This bug report is one example how well this works. In Maverick everything worked fine with the other backend they used.
And how well Pulseaudio works, I see everyday how it does NOT recognize my headset and sound stutters after 10 hours of computer runtime.
But I just switched the backend, removed Pulseaudio and now my computer is again as rock-solid as it used to be :)
But that discussion is not to be held in that bugreport :)
Not at all a duplicate, please read the bug description.
Indeed, this is a duplicate, well spotted, thank you.
As suggested in https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=272243#c8, please test with the phonon-backend-gstreamer 4.90 RC 1
