Can rhythmbox play APE music files?

I can't use rhythmbox to play my APE format music, if I missed something? Thanks in advance.

Re: Can rhythmbox play APE music files?

Yes it can.

You need the gst-monkeysaudio plugin for gstreamer. 

This is a quick modified version of another plugin's pkgbuild, probably not perfect.  There may be a TUR around already. 

pkgname=gst-monkeysaudio
pkgver=0.8.0
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="GNOME2 Gstreamer Multimedia Framework Plugin"
depends=('gstreamer>=0.8.2' 'lame'  'gnome-vfs'  'libmad' 'libid3tag'  'libdvdnav' 'flac' 'libdv' 'faac' 'faad2' 'hermes' 'libraw1394' 'libsndfile' 'libmikmod' 'mjpegtools' 'perl' 'musicbrainz')
makedepends=('intltool')
url="http://www.gnome.org"
install=gst-plugins.install
groups=('gnome-extra')
source=(http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/sources/$pkgname/0.8/$pkgname-$pkgver.tar.bz2 
        gst-plugins.install)

build() {
  cd $startdir/src/$pkgname-$pkgver
  ./configure --prefix=/opt/gnome --disable-arts --disable-artsc
  make || return 1
  make DESTDIR=$startdir/pkg install
  rm -rf $startdir/pkg/root/
}

Unfortunately there is no cue file support.  And according to the rhythmbox devs there is no need for it sad

They obviously don't have a 300 cd collection ripped to APE, CUE.

Good news.

Bad news, and  I surely have some APE and CUE music. Can I use "mount" command to mount CUE file and listen?
