    Cool GStreamer Error: Gstreamer encountered a general stream error (not all flacs)

    Hello guys,

    I was trying to convert a flac audio to mp3 using soundconverter & its failing with the error:

    GStreamer error: Gstreamer encountered a general stream error.
    :S

    I should note that the flac is a rip of an actual Mono Vinyl disc. Am not exactly sure how that was done but I was interested in converting some those files to ogg & mp3. OGG conversion doesn't give any error.

    Below is the result when launching soundconverter from the terminal & trying to convert the flac file(s) to mp3 (i just tried ogg to mp3 & the same error occurs):

    Code:
    $ soundconverter
    SoundConverter 1.4.4
      using Gstreamer version: 0.10.28, Python binding version: 0.10.18
      using gio
      using 2 thread(s)
    Queue done in 0s
    Queue done in 0s

    hope you could help me figure this out ;D

    look in your package manager for Gstreamer
    you need the good, bad, ugly, and 10 for the linux/ubuntu you use

    Try converting to WAV then convert from WAV to FLAC.

    i can convert to ogg or others & then to flac but thats not the purpose (loosing quality); besides the problem should not exist in the 1st place

    Same issue, finally found the preference for resample must be checked for conversion to mp3 from flac.

    just a mistake

    resampling doesn't affect the problem (wma to ogg)
