Question GStreamer and amaroK problems on SuSE 9.3


Has anyone managed to get GStreamer working with amaroK on SuSE 9.3? I've installed the GStreamer plugin rpms and the GStreamer engine for amaroK and I can enable the engine ok in amaroK, but when I try and play a track, GStreamer complains that it can't find the audioconvert plugin. gst-inpsect doesn't find it either...

I'm using the SuSE 9.3 rpms from Guru's RPM Site

Anyone got any ideas?

Cheers,
Neil

Fixed it. It looks like Guru's RPMs were a wee bit out of date and YaST had some newer ones. Serves me right for not checking YaST in the first place, I suppose.

Also recommended after installing GStreamer you should register it's components:

running: 'su -c gst-register-0.8' should take care of registering your GStreamer components.


DESCRIPTION

gst-register is a tool that is used to register all the GStreamer plug-ins on your system. It creates a listing of their properties such that on startup of GStreamer based application do not need to load plugins until they need them.

Yeh, I tried running that a couple of times as my normal username. Interestingly, the gst-register program doesn't seem to be in root's path on my machine.

Also, the SuSE rpms don't seem to have come with any mpc support - when I try and add an mpc file to amaroK's playlist, it tells me that the media could not be played. If I change engine to arts, the same files play fine. Output of $gst-inspect | grep *mpc* gives:

Code:
$gst-inspect | grep mpc
typefindfunctions: audio/x-musepack: mpc
typefindfunctions: application/x-apetag: ape, mpc
Is there any way of manually adding plugins that you know of?

Cheers,
Cleidh Mor

You will get really specific help here:

http://amarok.kde.org/component/opti...ard/Itemid,57/

The amaroK developers answer questions here on a regular basis. There's a guy named Markey who is really awesome. Post your questions here. If they can't answer them, they will hook you into the folks at gstreamer.
