Proxy configuration broken in 0.14 #472

In 0.13, we supported the following setting:


In 0.14, this was changed with the new config system. The equivalent today would be:

hostname =

But this doesn't work, as proxy/hostname is validated as a hostname:

ERROR    Config value proxy/hostname must be a resolveable hostname or valid IP

I suggest that we add more proxy config values, making the following a working proxy config:

type = http
hostname =
port = 8080

Other possible values for proxy/type include https, socks4, socks5. These values match the types accepted by libspotify. Does these types match what we can provide to GStreamer as well?

See and for what the souphttpsrc supports. and for rtspsrc.

As for naming s/type/scheme/ IMO. Otherwise like I said on IRC we need to decide if we just want the individual pieces pre split and then combine them to scheme://user:pw@host:port form before setting them on the gstreamer elements that can accept a proxy property (there is a introspection API for properties, but not all elements implement it as far as I know).
