Description Stephen Kirkby 2020-08-01 10:51:22 UTC
When selecting "Rip CD" in mythmusic, on the track selection screen:

- if all tracks are selected, it works and rips fine
- if the first track isn't selected but the rest are, it fails with error "Failed to create encoder" 

Reported upstream:

but posting here also as I have a proposed patch for this now (attached).
Also have a working ebuild here:

When testing this, bear in mind there is another outstanding issue which makes the UI hang before Ripping the CD, which I've also reported:

along with a simple work around, which is to add an entry to /etc/hosts before entering the Rip CD screen.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select "Rip CD" in mythmusic
2. On the track selection screen, deselect the first track
3. Select Rip
Actual Results:  
Error shown: "Failed to create encoder"

Expected Results:  
Should perform the rip.
