First of all, I'm sorry, I really have no idea what I'm doing, so please be patient with me. I'm having troubles with Rhythmbox. I would like to download some mp3 music files from a site (yes, I do have permission) and be able to have them saved onto Rhythmbox so I can play them whenever I want to. I was able to download the files onto my computer, open them up with the archive manager, and play them with Rhythmbox, but then whenever I exited out of the archive manager, they were instantly gone from Rhythmbox. The extra weird part is that with the SAME site, I've managed to do what I want (twice) with some other music files, but it took forever and I honestly have no idea how I did it, it just worked at some point. Please help!
Extract the mp3's in some folder and open them from there.
When you open a file from the Archive Manager, the file is saved in a temporary hidden .cache folder located in /home/user and it gets open from there. You can play the file with Rhythmbox but you can't import it. In order to import it, you need to save the mp3 in a folder like /home/user/music.
