Description Sergei S. Rublev 2013-11-01 18:14:47 EDT
Description of problem:
Clementine can't play radio streams encoded in AAC which VLC plays and identifies as mp4a, AAC: SBR.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Play in Clementine the following streams:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Clementine
2. Try to play http://streamer.psyradio.org:8120/ or http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r3_aaclca.pls

Actual results:
Error message "Could not decode stream".

Expected results:
Playing stream.

Additional info:
Looks alike the same Rhythmbox bug that was recently solved: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=970294

Worked with Clementine in Fedora 18 on other PCs.

Probably not a Clementine, but a codec bug, but I can't find which one. I have multiple GStreamer codecs related with nonfree (etc) Fedora repositories installed (RFremix).

I had the same problem an solved it this way:

Inatall  gstreamer-plugins-bad-0.1.10

It works for me.
Comment 3 Sergei S. Rublev 2013-12-22 05:29:10 EST
Thank you so much for the answer! The problem seemed to appear in RFRemix, which I don't now have access to, but not in original Fedora. I did a fresh install of the Fedora 20, and standard gstreamer-bad installation appeared to work. I encountered another problem though: modplug ("Tracker music" XM/MOD/IT/S3M) files weren't playing: the problem was solved by installing gstreamer-plugins-bad-free-extras.
Comment 4 Sergei S. Rublёv 2014-08-10 16:39:07 EDT
The initial problem was for RFRemix 19 written by me from different account. Now I've got newly-installed RFRemix 20 and got the same problem. The soultion was to install gstreamer-plugins-bad from @prmfusion-free-updates (and restart Clementine).
