Sorry but, what player do you use to listen internet radio (and .pls
files from shoutcast.com)? On windows there was Winamp and I have the
'Music Player' on my FC3, but how can I listen to stations that are
listed on shoutcast.com?

Suddenly gxine froze, I used to listen to Virgin radio (see http://www.virginradio.co.uk/thestation/listen/index.html ) by gxine when surfing by Firefox, now I am not able to connect any longer. System is a FC3 upgraded from FC2.

If I start the gxine package from a terminal I get:

server: trying to connect to already running instance of gxine (/home/antoniomontagnani/.gxine/socket)...
connect: Connessione rifiutata
server: socket '/home/antoniomontagnani/.gxine/socket' created


This is the list of my installed packages.
Package Class Description
gxine 0.3.3-2.fr Applications/Multimedia A GTK based frontend for the xine multimedia library.
system-config-services 0.8.15-1 Applications/System system-config-services is an initscript and xinetd configuration utility
xine 0.99.2-1.1.fc3.fr Applications/Multimedia Free multimedia player
xine-lib 1.0.0-0.17.rc8.1.fc3.fr Applications/Multimedia Core library of the xine multimedia player


Any hint?? Tnx for help






this happens also in a fresh session, with the machine just booted, no gxine, xine already running...
Of course system - config-services is not t b included in the picture, sorry for mistyping it




I upgraded to gxine 0.3.3-3.1.fc3.rf but no improvement, exactly same sympthoms....FC3 is fully updated


A wild guess: Xine or gxine died, leaving some sort of lock file
in place. When restarting, it sees the lock file and thinks there's
another instance already running. Find that lock and remove it
and all will (probably) be well.






in my ./Gxine directory I have:
config
keybindings
mediamarks
playlist
socket (with a strange icon, a socket!!!)

Is it correct?? and this is when I fired my PC.




and when gxine freezes, if i force the window to close, also Firefox dies.....

with Gxine, but it is not working any longer with latest Fedor updates (see my posts).

Multimedia is always a pain, Windows is still light years ahead for the standard user (You have Window Player for any file): and until effort on this issue is seriously done, no real hope to repalce Windows on teh PC of a general user, this is my opinion.
I am seriously planning to revert to a Windows machine for multimedia.
