View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 10.04 Banshee streamrecorder no longer works after upgrade

February 4th, 2011, 06:51 PM
Have Ubuntu 10.04 with the Banshee team PPA repository. Installed Banshee 1.8.0 which recently upgraded to 1.8.1. Since the upgrade, the streamrecorder plug-in no longer works nor does it present any conversion options.

Any idea what the problem might be?


The problem seemed to surround "gstreamer element autoaudiosink"

So, first I tried the following...

rm -rf ~/.gconf/system/gstreamer
rm -rf ~/.gstreamer-0.10

Then rebooting...this didn't work

Then I tried simply deleting the ~/.config/banshee-1 directory and letting Banshee rebuild it when I started it up again. I had to re-set my preferences, and I lost my one saved radio station, but my liveradio settings were still intact and the streamrecorder plugin now works just fine.

I will post this as [SOLVED] but, if anyone has a more elegant solution, please add it to the thread.
