Description Julien Demare 2006-09-26 16:07:47 UTC
It will be great if users can add theirs favorites url stream in Totem Movie Player. Thus it will not be necessary any more to go on web site of ours favorite radio or tv who stream their program.

This could be do by two way :
 - Like RealPlayer for Linux : in main toolbar between "Sound" and "Help"
 - Add a third "way" at Playlist and Propreties, at the right of window, and favorites can be managed like a playlist.

P.S. Sorry for my english, it's not my mother thongue.

Good idea (similar to bug 164918), but there would be quite a technical problem with it:
We'd need to remember the canonical location of the playlist, we can't just save "" or something funky like that, but rather the location of the original playlist

This is something we'd implement as part of the Videos re-design. See:

I had the same "problem".

Sop actually, you can now "save it for offline use", which is a quite strange wording IMHO as it implies that the video would be constantly downloaded.

However, doing so for a stream makes it appear in the "videos" tab instead of the "channels" one. You already have this channel tab and now I cannot even add a channel there? Are you serious?
Secondly I cannot rename the channel AFAIK, which is bad when the websites only use general names.

Also with this method, I still have no way to add the URL directly in totem. One must know that one has to visit the website – in contrast to VLC – where there is e.g. a simple input field for the URL. I really looked for a way to open the URL, before I found out, I can open it via the browser.

So three issues here. I hope it's okay to include them all here.
