View Full Version : Will gstreamer play m4a's in FC6?

Will it? VLC and Amarok will, but they both use another engine...xine, I think. But the songbird preview, rhythmbox, quod libet...anything that uses the gstreamer back-end will not. When I try to add .m4a's to rhythmbox it gives this error "Interneal GStreamer problem; file a bug" But Quod Libet and Songbird just lock up. I'd really like to use something other than amarok (I don't like having to make a playlist just to hear one song), so help is appreciated.

I have every gstreamer package, by the way.

A quick search on google pointed me to this link for rhythmbox and m4a patch. Search in the page for m4a.

Wow, I don't know how you found that. But, I can't find that file "gsttypefindfunctions.c". And I have every gstreamer package installed.

Not sure where to go from here. but the file mentioned in the post is located here.

Being as old as it is it may already be part of the newest cvs release. Or is obselete.
