As far as I can tell, Jamendo does not have any sort of per-category/tag
streaming. It seems like the most you can do for a category is 'Listen
to the albums of this page', which just dynamically generates an m3u
that points directly to a handfull of oggs.
I'm not sure of the best way to integrate Jamendo into Rhythmbox in the
short-term (the plugin would be the long term solution). Laurent, any
* RHYTHMBOX PLUG-IN EXPERIMENTATION (lmacken, ssalevan). Jamendo has
great xmlrpc calls. We'd like to hook into them so that Rhythmbox can
show artist info -- maybe even in the notifications field for Rhythmbox.
Like, say, where an artist will be playing, or where you can buy a
t-shirt. Mostly, we'll just be playing around to figure out how this will
work. Luke/Steve, it might be worth finding some CVS space in Fedora-land
if other people are interested in this.
We can probably do some pretty cool stuff with this. I haven't looked
at the API in great detail, but it doesn't look like there is a way to
retrieve album covers?
* INSTALL CCHOST IN RH COLO (lmacken). We want to learn a lot more
the award-winning ccHost application, especially as a potential backend
for people using Fedora (or one day OLPC) to collaborate on musical
projects. Luke is going to get that running for us.
We have a bunch of new hardware making its way to the colo. I'll see
what I can do about setting up a ccHost playground in a xen guest once
we get them up and running.
