    Question Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in.

    Hi... It seems like both of my audio player got above issue when playing m4a files which is Apple lossless. Below are the error warning:

    gmusicbrowser
    Playing error : Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in. at /usr/bin/../share/gmusicbrowser/gmusicbrowser_gstreamer-0.10.pm line 137.

    Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in.

    However I can play those files with VLC but I prefer to use VLC for video only and independant audio player. I did try some workaround or fix such as removing gstreamer-0.10 etc and remove or rename the registry.x86_64.bin but no success. And yep, I installed ubuntu restricted extras.

    Ubuntu 14.04 x64
    Inspiron-5437
    Dual boot Windows 8.1

    I believe that the gstreamer-FFmpeg pluging is not available in the stock Ubuntu Repositories for 14.04 and perhaps this is your problem. Some discussion here with a suggested fix:

    Oh my goodness. I was following the website tutorial regarding post install but how can I really miss that. Thank you very much for the guidance.

    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/trusty/...mer0.10-ffmpeg

    reports that "
    • Removal requested on 2014-01-20.
    • Deleted on 2014-01-20 by Matthias Klose lp #1253071, Remove completely gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg src+binaries, superseded by gstreamer1.0-libav

    "
    I see that in my [Lubuntu] repositories, gstreamer1.0-libav is available, but not installed.

    Has anyone tried this as a possible solution? - it would logically be a better one (if it works) than using the "add a ppa:", since it is available without adding a ppa, and it is gstreamer 1.0, instead of the older 0.10.

    I have already added the ppa and installed the 0.10-ffmpeg, and have no time to remove it, add the libav, and test it right now...

    Re: Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in.

    You can have 0.10-ffmpeg and 1.0-libav packages installed at the same.

    In the case of gmusicbrowser, it still uses gstreamer0.10, so installing gstreamer1.0-libav will have no effect.
    I was reading a book about Genghis Khan when I made my account and I empathized with aspects of his life. It doesn't mean I want to kill everyone. You're taking the interweb too seriously. I'm trying to help you, seriously. Use the eye test.

    Yup, it's not even in plugins-bad.
    I just switched backend on Audio tab. The advantage of "gstreamer" mode is being the only one where Equalizer is available. If you don't need it -
    "mpg123/ogg123/..." - everything works except Replay Gain, but low bitrates are accelerated.
    "mplayer" - everything works fine.

    What is "it" in this case?
