I've just upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 and I figured I'd give their new default music player a go. I have my music in the $home/Music folder and I was using Rhythmbox. The Banshee player has a handy item on import suggesting it can pull from Rhythmbox too. When I do it however it comes up with errors for all bar a couple of albums I bought recently via Amazon (mp3).
Any idea what I'm doing wrong? There are errors reported for all the tracks that didn't get pulled in, suggesting it read the file list correctly. I also tried importing by directory with the same results.
The error reported for each track is 'Unable to import song'.
I initially thought perhaps it was a codec issue because I'd just upgraded and presumably the codecs I'd need were no longer on the sources list. I found those and installed them and found all the other ways of playing can deal with the music there.
I then connected to my daapd server and was able to play the music on Banshee from there. This is actually the same music so I'm now guessing it's not a codec issue.
