Phonon, GStreamer (and plugins), Pidgin = no sound.


Hello all, I have a problem. I have a installed packages listed below:
Code:
phonon-4.6.0-i486-1
phonon-gstreamer-4.6.2-i486-1
phonon-mplayer-1b1fd1f_20110823git-i486-1
phonon-xine-4.4.4-i486-1
gst-plugins-base-0.10.36-i486-2
gst-plugins-good-0.10.31-i486-3
gstreamer-0.10.36-i486-1
In KDE, all settings in Qt4 Config in a tab Phonon is not available. Also, I use Pidgin 2.10.6. All good, but in Pidgin I not have a sound. Launching in the terminal emulator answers to me: 'gstreamer: A WAV decoder plugin is required to play this stream, but not installed'. Differences with versions of gstreamer and gst-plugins is not reason for is not recognize this plugin and no sound in Pidgin? In this time, I want to build that packages in versions 0.11.1, I think this solve problem.
Thanks and sorry for my english.

I don't have a solution for you, but seeing that no one has replied maybe this page may be helpful to diagnose your problem:

http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/dat...ter-using.html

For example, regarding the wavpack plugin I get the following output on my system (slackware64-current):
Code:
$ gst-inspect-0.10 wavpack
Plugin Details:
  Name:			wavpack
  Description:		Wavpack lossless/lossy audio format handling
  Filename:		/usr/lib64/gstreamer-0.10/libgstwavpack.so
  Version:		0.10.31
  License:		LGPL
  Source module:	gst-plugins-good
  Source release date:	2012-02-20
  Binary package:	GStreamer Good Plug-ins source release
  Origin URL:		Unknown package origin

  wavpackparse: Wavpack parser
  wavpackdec: Wavpack audio decoder
  wavpackenc: Wavpack audio encoder

Thanks for ansver. On my system, gst-inspect-0.10 wavpack shows the same as you (exclude path to file - I have i686 machine). With another programs like DeadBeef and Opera, the sound are working. Conclusion - this is a bug? I have simple solution - fallback to previous versions of gstreamer packages...
Building gstreamer 0.11 does not make sense due to the fact that many packages depend on the old version.
P.S. System is -current (RC 5, but with the "old" 3.2.28 kernel).

Oh, I found the reason: libgstwavpack.so is blacklisted Thanks again for help!
UPD: But I don't put the libgstwavpack.so and other 57 elemints in blacklist...
UPD2: Fully solve this problem:
Code:
$ rm -f ~/.gstreamer-0.10/registry.i486.bin
$ gst-inspect
