ogg streams and rhythmbox



Rhythmbox from upstream works well with mp3 shoutcast streams, which are removed from Fedora Core due to mp3 support not being there.

Apparantly CBC will be streaming with ogg - and I'm curious as to how popular ogg streaming is, and wether or not some default internet radio stations using ogg through shoutcast should be used for Rhythmbox - are there enough to make it worth it?

I know shoutcast2 builds fine on FC2 and FC3 and the gstreamer plugin also does - I don't know that they are required for ogg streaming in rhythmbox (they don't seam to be for mp3 streaming) but if they are, they work and should be patent free.

Do ogg shoutcast streams work in Rhythmbox as it is?
I think it is worth investigating just so that rhythmbox could be distributed with Fedora Core 4 with working internet radio stations.
