Question wav support for Rhythmbox (gstreamer)?


Is it currently possible to enable wav streaming support for Rhythmbox? Presumably, this requires a wav plugin for gstreamer. I don't need to share wav files, but want to play my own and others' shared files.

I managed to install gstreamer-plugins-ugly and -bad and now have mp3 and m4a capability (BTW, it *was* ugly and bad - I had to ignore a dependency for a file required by directfb)

I found an RPM "gstreamer-wav..", but could not find rpms providing most of its dependencies (all named libg<blah>.so.12)

I like RB, but if there's another player that can play my own and others' shared mp3, m4a *and* wav, that would be great. I can share my music with mt-daapd, so sharing is not required.

System: FC5, kernel 2.6.15-1.2054 on IBM T43 laptop
(I haven't upgraded kernel yet - too much work involved getting the wireless to work again)

rhythmbox-0.9.3
gstreamer-0.10.3-3.1-3
gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.3-1.fc5
gstreamer-plugins-bad-0.10.3-1.fc5
gstreamer-plugins-good-0.10.2-1

Thanks

Lou

Actually, I can play my own local wav files but can't play others' shared wav files with RB.
