In Ubuntu 10.10 I was using the rhythmbox-plugin-coherence package and I was happy to stream music from Rhythmbox to our internet radio box. But in 11.10 (64Bit) I can not find the package anymore, although this page claims it is in the repositories (as far as I understand). I first tried Rhythmbox 2.95 which should have a Grilo UPnP, but was not successful.

So installed the plugin according to this link with Rhythmbox 2.95:

sudo apt-get install subversion  
sudo apt-get install python-coherence  
sudo svn checkout https://coherence.beebits.net/svn/trunk/Coherence/misc/Rhythmbox-Plugin/upnp_coherence/ /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plug

ins/upnp_coherence

And I also tried:

svn checkout https://coherence.beebits.net/svn/trunk/Coherence/misc/Rhythmbox-Plugin/upnp_coherence/ /home/cds/.gnome2/rhythmbox/plugins/upnp_coherence

But there is still no UPnP Plugin to activate in Rhythmbox (Edit>Plugins). Did anybody manage to install this in Ubuntu 11.10 or does this plugin not work anymore with the newer versions of Rhythmbox?

Coherence plugin does not install in newer versions of rhythmbox

A debian package rhythmbox-plugin-coherence built for 11.10 can be found on launchpad (see link). However this package depends on rhythmbox <0.14 and will not run with a newer version of rhythmbox. This may not change in the future as both the coherence plugin and the debian package is not included for 12.04.

Alternatives

  • DAAP shares from Rhythmbox:

    We are able to share our music by defining a DAAP share from the DAAP plugin in rhythmbox (Edit->Plugins):

    enter image description here

  • uShare Install ushare

    Another quite stable solution for UPnP shares is the command line tool uShare that also works independent of a running music player. After set up with

    sudo dpkg-reconfigure ushare
    

    we can share any directory or multiple directory by running

    ushare -D --name=<name_of_my_stream> --content=<path_to_mediafiles>  
    

    In case you are not so comfortable with the command line there is a GUI tool stream2ip that will do most of the work for you.
