    Rhythmbox Gstreamer "Error while saving song information"

    I try to change track information (artist name, etc) in Rhythmbox by right clicking on a song and choosing properties. But once I've made the changes and click close I get an error box that says:

    Error while saving song information
    GStreamer encountered a general stream error.

    Any ideas? I had a quick look around and found similar errors, though not related to Rhythmbox, but none of the solutions appeared relevent. I did do this though...
    Code:
     $ gstreamer-properties
    
    (gstreamer-properties:24672): Gtk-WARNING **: Unknown property: GtkDialog.has-separator
    
    (gstreamer-properties:24672): Gtk-WARNING **: Unknown property: GtkDialog.has-separator
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'artsdsink'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'esdsink'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'sunaudiosink'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'glimagesink'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'sdlvideosink'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'v4lmjpegsrc'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'qcamsrc'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'v4lsrc'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'esdmon'
    gstreamer-properties-Message: Skipping unavailable plugin 'sunaudiosrc'
    Perhaps that helps diagnose.

    Thanks.

    Re: Rhythmbox Gstreamer "Error while saving song information"

    What version of Ubuntu and RB are you running? I have the same issue since I upgraded from 12.10 to 13.04. Any new album I have imported after the upgrade is missing the year information. When I try to manually update it in the properties window, I get the same error as you.

    I also have the long term release 12.04 with RB 2.96 and I don't have the issue on this system.

    I am having the same problem editing song properties with RB 2.98 on Ubuntu 13.04. The problem seems to be limited to files ripped from CD since the upgrade to 13.04

    I'm also on 13.04 64-bit, and having the same problem. However, it only happens with music in MPEG4 (.m4a files); changing attributes of music in other formats works fine.

    I have the same problem, 13.04 64-bit, and as aracheldra said it happens only with MPEG4 but not MP3 files.

    Re: Rhythmbox Gstreamer "Error while saving song information"

    Ubuntu doesn't officially support the commercially licensed MPEG formats (mp3/mpeg3,m4a/mpeg4). From what I've studied, you have to download ubuntu-restricted-extras, or gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly, to provided added functionality to play, read and control these files. I have both packages installed and I can't change mpeg4 files either, my whole iTunes music library is all locked out on this OS; For properties changes only, I can still rock out

    We'll have to wait for a bug fix. I'm curious if they know about this minor glitch.

    I have a nasty workaround. Install VirtualBox and a guest OS (I have Windows 7) Share the Music folder and then edit the tags in Explorer. Rescan the library back in Ubuntu and the tags are changed.
