    totem requres aditional plugins (still): audioconvert...

    had a computer with fedora 14 cd 32bit gnome installed - worked good
    got a new disk so installed the dvd version (pretty much all the packages) onto it - this is the problem installation

    after installation i added the rpmfusion repositories and installed all codecs
    Code:
    yum install gstreamer-ffmpeg gstreamer-plugins* -x *devel*
    (same as last time although i may have let totem search for some prior to this command)

    ###the problem###
    when opening a video (not just one type of audio/vidoe codec) with totem it opens up the whole extra codecs are required... the following plugins are required:
    GStreamer element audioconvert
    GStreamer element deinterlace
    GStreamer element videoscale.
    want to search?

    if you search it wont find anything, if you close it plays perfect,,, but. when loading previews in nautilus it has the loading icon/clock and then just shows the totem icon

    also i have realised that it cant play wma giving error "The playback of this movie requires a GStreamer element audioconvert plugin which is not installed." - the rythmbox preview works though.



    ********solution**************
    remove ~/.gstreamer-0.10/registry.i386.bin

    Cool Re: totem requres aditional plugins (still): audioconvert...

    found this here on a gentoo site:
    http://bugs.gentoo.org/122735

    basically remove the ~/.gstreamer-x.x/registry*.*
    (in my case ~/.gstreamer-0.10/registry.i386.bin

    I removed registry.i386.bin but it does not work.
    and I reinstall gstreamer-plugins-good,base as fc14 not update version
    I checked in rpmfind.net.
    if you need, you can reinstall
    #rpm -Uvh gstreamer-plugins-good-x.x.x-.rpm --force --nodeps
    #rpm -Uvh gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.30-2.fc14.i686.rpm --force --nodeps

    Please don't post improper solutions


    When Answering Questions

    1. Don't be cruel. We have all been newbies at one point and no one needs someone telling them how stupid they are.
    2. Don't use jargon in your instructions if it can be avoided, newbies may not understand. If you don't have any better answer than RTFM (Read the fine manual), just be quiet.
    3. Point the user to existing resources if they can provide useful information. Use community sites like Fedora Set-Up Guides and fedoraNEWS.org in your answers; searching the Red Hat Bugzilla is a good idea as well.
    4. Always assume the the user has a default installation unless you're told otherwise. This means that you can't tell anyone to use APT without providing instructions on how to install APT or at least link to an APT tutorial, as APT isn't included in the default installation. If you tell people to use an application outside of Core, give instructions on how to install it.
    5. Always assume that the user is a newbie unless you're certain the user is not. Give detailed instructions.
    6. Use proper formatting, use[CODE] tags around terminal commands. You can attach files and pictures that you think might help.
    7. Do things the Fedora-way. There are always more than one solution to a problem, choose the one you think will be the easiest for the user. Automatic package installation (using YUM, PackageKit or Yumex) over manual installation. RPM over source. Where possible get people to use the official Fedora repositories and the related RPMFusion. They are of higher quality. Don't replace any Core packages and never instruct users to do anything that might break their system, this includes using --force and --nodeps when installing an RPM. Try to think as a newbie and choose the simplest solution.
    8. Explain each step of the solution. The ideal solution to a problem should be able to teach the user how to solve similar problems in the future. Teach people to fish, don't just throw them a salmon.
    Posting Rules


    The proper way is

    Code:
    su
    yum reinstall gstreamer-plugins-base gstreamer-plugins-good
    If you want the older version

    Code:
    su
    yum downgrade gstreamer-plugins-base* gstreamer-plugins-good

    Re: totem requres aditional plugins (still): audioconvert...

    Having the exact same problem here, anybody found a solution to this yet? My issue is that when trying to play an mp3, Rhythmbox says "the following plugin is required: GStreamer element audioconvert". But, gst-inspect -b shows "libgstaudioconvert.so" as blacklisted. I tried reinstalling gstreamer-plugins-base, and gstreamer-plugins-good, and also removing ~/.gstreamer/registry.i386.bin and running "gst-inspect", and still the same problem.

    Hello
    have you tried gstreamer-ffmpeg and ffmpeg itself some media players use ffmpeg's libs as a fallback if the decoder is not built in.
    have you tried vlc ? it has mp3 built in, I always use vlc to play music

    Re: totem requres aditional plugins (still): audioconvert...

    I have not tried VLC yet, we would really like to get Rhythmbox working because of some nice features. Yes, gstreamer-ffmpeg and ffmpeg are both installed. In fact, I've also found that Totem complains about missing gstreamer plugins as well. I am hoping to fix the gstreamer issue, which will fix both Rhythmbox and Totem. Just for the record, the output of "gst-inspect -b" is:

    Blacklisted files:
    libgstvideobox.so
    libgstvideoscale.so
    libgstadder.so
    libgstpython.so
    libgstvolume.so
    libgstaudioconvert.so
    libgstvideomixer.so
    libgstvideotestsrc.so
    libgstdeinterlace.so

    Total count: 9 blacklisted files
    Thanks!

    Missing plugin: gstreamer|0.10|totem|

    Hello everybody,
    i 've got the same problem here, and no, sorry, in my case it's still not solved.
    The problem occurs after Upgrading from Fedora 13 to Fedora 14 using preupgrade and upgrade.

    So here some necessary facts about my environment:
    Fedora 14
    2.6.35.11-83.fc14.i686
    GraphicCard (But I think that doesn't matter in this case)
    [sunson@tagliatelle ~]$ lspci | grep VGA
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV43 [GeForce 6600 GT] (rev a2)
    Totem
    yum list totem
    Geladene Plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
    Installierte Pakete
    totem.i686 1:2.32.0-1.fc14 @fedora
    all codecs are installed as described above and, for example, VLC and gnome-mplayer work without errors.
    totem started in terminal gives following error messages (only example, error occurs on every file format, or better, codec:
    [sunson@tagliatelle ~]$ totem
    ** Message: pygobject_register_sinkfunc is deprecated (GstObject)

    ** (totem:3902): WARNING **: chapters: failed to load CMML file file:///home/sunson/Desktop/Teil_25_Die_dreibeinigen_Herrscher_Die_letzte_Etap pe.cmml: Fehler beim Öffnen der Datei: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
    ** Message: Missing plugin: gstreamer|0.10|totem|DivX MPEG-4 Version 4-Decoder|decoder-video/x-divx, divxversion=(int)4 (DivX MPEG-4 Version 4-Decoder)
    ** Message: PackageKit: xid = 94371844
    ** Message: PackageKit: Codec nice name: DivX MPEG-4 Version 4-Decoder
    ** Message: PackageKit: field is: divxversion, type: gint
    ** Message: PackageKit: structure: gstreamer0.10(decoder-video/x-divx)(divxversion=4)
    ** Message: PackageKit: Did not install codec: did not agree to search

    (totem:3902): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: _gst_util_uint64_scale_int: assertion `denom > 0' failed
    I removed the
    ~/.gstreamer-0.10/registry.i386.bin
    yes, even the whole folder.

    I reinstalled totem and every gstreamer-plugin i've found. I Reinstalled Gstreamer itself, too (It took me a while to figure out the "reinstall" parameter and I'm wondering why it's not mentioned in the man page, but that's another topic =D)

    So my suggestion is, that totem only doesn't find the plugins to use, for some reasons.
    But I don't know where and how to configure that. Totem plays the sound of the file and uses the visualisation plugin.

    So that's everything I have.
    Hope together we'll fix that, but I'm still not sure if all issues mentioned in this post have the same reason.

    May I suggest that you start a new thread on this topic? Hijacking threads is frowned upon.
