I’m working on a snap that downloads media files (mp3, ogg, mp4, mkv, etc) and allows to launch those media files in the default media player. Unfortunately it seems that on classic ubuntu desktop the launch command via glib fails with unknown scheme. I know we needed to monkey-patch web addresses with the
snapd-xdg-open apt package (which is being ported into snapd itself), so do we need to also monkey-patch opening video and audio files from the filesystem?
If the default media player is in a snap then presumably the snap I’m building will need to provide a content interface, but that is for another day…
Error from app is:
Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.InvalidArgs: unknown scheme: /home/dllewellyn/snap/gpodder/x9/gPodder/Downloads/Ubuntu Podcast/ubuntupodcast_s10e22.ogg
