I am running Lucid Lynx 10.04 and have tried to add a new radio station in Rhythmbox. But when i tried to listen to the radio station i was informed: Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in.

Could someone please tell me what GStreamer plug-in i should install.

I'm running 10.04 and also having this problem, but for mp3 files. I can play the files in Movie Player, but not Rhythmbox.

I tried the solution here: ( https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rhythmbox/+question/90242 ), however it could not find "gstreamer0.10-pitfdll". It manually installed "gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad". My hunch is that it is a Rhythmbox error, not the gstreamer plug-in.

Problem is still not solved.

I have this issue as well with playing mp3 files only in rhythmbox. I have zero issues in vlc and songbird.

It states,"Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in." even after the player automatically downloaded and installed gstreamer and I installed the medibuntu restricted formats package, w64codecs.

If I get this situation resolved, I'll post back.

If you haven't already done so, goto the link below and follow the tutoial on how to enable the medibuntu repository and also install the restricted codecs.

I did this and after restarting X with a logout, the issues with Rhythmbox went away.
