Windows Media Playback Songbird
Allows you to play protected Windows Media Audio files
Adds support for protected WMA files.
Updated for 2.2.0 release.
works fine for me, thx!
Can someone make an ubuntu compatable version?
This is great...
Yes - where is the Ubuntu version???
Yeah, Ubuntu supported version would be awesome...goddam windows bits and bobs lurking around from my past!
Are there plans to support this on the Mac?
Would like to see this for MAC OS X PPC. Thanks for all you have now.
+ 1 for Ubuntu.
Hey, I just discovered a problem with it. I use this on windows vista, and when I want to change the metadata of a song that is currently playing, I get an error that says I don't got writing permissions. This doesn't happen with the addon disabled.
We need an ubuntu version!!! -.-
Please make one for linux! Thanks
This add-on does not work for me. I try to play protected Windows Media files and it pops open my browser and takes me to the Microsoft page explaining why I can't play that song. I close the page and it opens again and again and it won't stop until you pick another song. I'm using Vista. I tried re-installing the add-on but that did not help. Has anyone else seen this?
i cant download this! why?
Man, it would solve so many problems if Songbird would focus on providing Linux support.
I want ubuntu version.
what is dowload?
Thanks! Working great for me.
OK quero baixar, como faço?
+1 for Linux and Ubuntu in particular
Please help me
I'm Added plugin Windows Media Play but when I browser on the web, it not play music. please fix error for me
If you've found this trying to figure out how to get songbird to work on ubuntu, this is what worked for me...
Go to your synaptic package manager and search gstreamer. install all of that.
woops... I meant if your trying to get songbird to play your wma files on ubuntu... duh....
I cain't install it, now.
I like the above thought. The things which are mentioned are wonderful and doesn't require any further addiction.
the install button is grayed out so I cannot install. any ideas?
I can't playback any of my napster files anymore since i upgraded from songbird 1.2b to 1.2 final. Its drm protected wma files. Any idea?
I'm having problems renewing the license for DRM protected content. It seems like the plugin is trying to open a browser instance but gets blocked for some reason. Worked flawlessly in Songbird versions prior to 1.2.
I can't download it~~ ?
Not working for me- I get a "Mediacore error - Windows Media Player encountered a problem while playing the file" when trying to play protected WMA content. Windows 7 RC, Songbird 1.3.0b1
Please get this working for Linux. Linux is gaining popularity in the netbook market, and people probably will want to use their new netbooks with their old WMA files. I don't own a netbook, but I know a ton of students on my campus who do use teh Linux-based netbooks.
Isn't this available for Linux because of copyrights? Well, it doesn't matter anyway, I was planing on converting all the .wma files that I have to .mp3 and now that I think about it, I don't understand why I didn't rip all my music in .ogg from the start... Maybe because my portable media player is a Pocket PC, but still, I have a great .ogg player in it.
Thought I would need this add-on. But it turns out Songbird plays wma-files (audio/x-ms-wma) without it.
Songbird 1.2.0, Build 1146 (20090616030029)
Ubuntu 9.04 - Jaunty Jackalope
Just offering another request for a Mac compatible version of this.
works fine, but I have encountered problems while opening WMA streams from internet, for example Planet Rock radio uses it. Songbird can't determine stream format even with Windows Media Playback plugin on.
4 mac ple@ce! =)
nice to meet you !
i cant dowload it, why??? the button is disabled
I can't either - wtf?
for those who ask about downloading, are you running windows? if so, then maybe its being worked on, but being windows, your codecs should handle play back automatically. Linux and MAC, your reasons for no download should be obvious....
M first time use so at this time no any idea of this software.
amazed there's no extension to allow wma on 1.4.3 with ubuntu.
i can't download mp3 song, why?
would love it for Mac os x please
me acabo de comprar este hermoso aparato pero no se como instalarle musica, alguien me puede ayudar con esto por favor.
