Working with Songbird and wma files
First, open up a terminal and go to the Songbird chrome directory
Next, we need to edit a file from the songbird.jar file, so we will need to open that up
sudo file-roller songbird.jar
Now, open the content folder, followed by the songbird then scripts folder, find the file called coreGStreamerSimple.js and drag that to your desktop, leave archive manager open as we are going to add to it in a moment.
Open it up in your favorite editor, now we are going to add wma support to the "mediaUrlExtensions" section. It should look like this:
this._mediaUrlExtensions = ["mp3", "ogg", "flac", "mpc", "wav", "m4a", "m4v",
"wmv", "asf", "avi", "mov", "mpg", "mp4", "ogm",
"mp2", "mka", "mkv", "wma"];
Save the file, and drag that back over to the archive manager/songbird.jar file. close it,now open songbird and add your favorite wma files
This tutorial will only make songbird able play wma or it will play wma with drm protection???
there is no coreGStreamerSimple.js file in that folder on version 1.4.3
No coreGStreamerSimple.js file on version 1.8.0 either.
