mms:// internetradio fails in Rythmbox but not VLC


Hi!
When I try to start an internetradio ( mms://wm-live.sr.se/SR-P3-High ) I get the error:
Couldn't start playback
No URI handler implemented for "mms"

and

Couldn't stop playback
Unable to start playback pipeline

After the error I can't play anything at all (not even files stored on disk) until I've restarted Rythmbox.

The URL is working perfectly in VLC and I've tried to use http:// instead. I've checked for packages and tried to find any one I might need but had no success (installed libmms0 with no result). I've also tried a bunch of different URL I've found for same radiostations like mms://sr-wm.qbrick.com/02038_SR-P3-High but it's the same there.

I had an installation of Ubuntu 9.10 earlier where it suddenly out of nowhere started to work, I have no idea what I did though I had the same problem at first.

Would appreciate any help on this since it's starting to get frustrating (again).

I've managed to fix the problem now. I completely removed Rhythmbox with Synaptic then re-installed in Synaptic. I also added "python-coherence" and all gstreamer packages, rebooted and it's all up and running
I think I did this by accident in my previous installation of Ubuntu as I tried out another media player.
