Songbird 0.5 build for Solaris Nevada x86

Songbird 0.5 build for Solaris Nevada x86 is now available for download here. It's built on Solaris Nevada b80 x86 box with Sun Studio 11. The release notes is here. Please file bug in Songbird bugzilla or get people on the Songbird IRC if you find any problem for it.

I also tried to compile the ffmpeg gstreamer plugin on the same Solaris box. It works well with Songbird for mp4/mov/mpeg/vob... Well, is there any plan for Songbird on the video part?:-)

Hi,

This is great work your doing ! I don't see why your gate can't be integrated into SXCE as the default media player ?

Regards,
Edward.

Yeah, I am really looking forward Songbird pkgs (SVR4 or pkg(5)).

Edward, currently Rhythmbox has been delivered into Solaris Nevada as the media player. The problem now is the license issue for Rhythmbox(GPL)+Gstreamer(LGPL)+mp3 decoder(copyright?). Songbird(GPL)'s license contains an exception to bypass this limitation. However, Songbird now also face a license issue: Songbird(GPL)+XULRunner(MPL)+Flashplayer(copyright). On the other hand, it's not appropriate to deliver two applications into Nevada which have almost the same functionality. Anyway, all the issues need to be sorted out. I'm all for delivering Songbird into Solaris/OpenSolaris in the future:-)

Vlad, I'm working on the spec file for building Songbird. It's almost ready and will be checked into SFE. The SVR4 package will be provided then.

Great work!
I need to play MP3, having install GStreamer, however
ldd components/sbGStreamer.so show missing libxpcom.so. Do you know how to find the file?

Thanks,
