Description Eric Mesa 2006-01-21 10:56:14 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050922 Fedora/1.0.7-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.7

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):

How reproducible:

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

Additional info:

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
-running st-launch-ext-0.8
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.

Running command-line
gst-launch-0.8 filesrc
location="01_Anberlin_Blueprints_For_The_Black_Market_Readyfuels.ogg" !
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.

Thank you for the bug report. However, Fedora Project no longer maintains this
version of the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug
if the problem persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older
releases, and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the
problem against Fedora Legacy component
