Description of problem:
Whenever I try to play a song in rhythmbox, I get the following errors:
Internal GStreamer error: negotiation problem. File a bug.
Internal GStreamer error: pad problem. File a bug.
Could not start pipeline playing
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.double-click on song or click play with a song selected in the playlist
Actual Results: Those errors listed above appears
Expected Results: a song should have played
went through a few steps with the team at Gnome and here's what we found:
-gstreamer is the RH version of gstreamer; from the Freshrpms repository I have also added gstreamer-plugins-extra-audio, extra-video, and tools-dvd;
-oggs can play in ogg123, xine, mplayer, xmms, and amaroK
No configuration file /home/emesa/.gst found. You might want to create one.
This is not an error, just a friendly reminder... Check the man page.
oggdemux ! vorbisdec ! audioconvert ! osssink
RUNNING pipeline ...
makes the song play - so gstreamer works
-I CAN listen to streaming media in rhythmbox
-finally, there is ONE mp3 that plays. I tried playing other mp3s, but they don't work. I tried other mp3s from the same folder - no dice. I tried using the file command to see if there was a difference, but no - there wasn't.
-I have a lot of other programs that depend on the other gstreamer plugins, so I'd like to fix this w/o disturbing those, if possible.
