Problems with both Phonon backends, Amarok, KDE, and Fedora 24


I'm getting some errors I've never gotten before although strangely when I Google anything with this keywords is from around the time of Fedora 18 so the solutions don't apply.

If I use the VLC backend, I get the following error:

Code:
[ermesa@supermario ~]$ [00007f665c000ed8] cache_read stream error: cannot pre fill buffer
[00007f665c004aa8] es demux error: cannot peek

[00007f665c004aa8] es demux error: cannot peek
[00007f665c004aa8] es demux error: cannot peek
[00007f665c004aa8] ps demux error: cannot peek
[00007f665c004aa8] mjpeg demux error: cannot peek
[00007f665c004aa8] mpgv demux error: cannot peek
[00007f665c004aa8] ps demux error: cannot peek
[00007f665c0031b8] core input source error: cannot parse file:///home/ermesa/Music/Danny_Elfman/Corpse_Bride/04_-_into_the_forest_256_ogg_cbr.ogg
Then it will play the song, but won't scrobble it and won't updated the played stats in Amarok.

If I switch to the Gstreamer backend, it will only play free formats. It tells me it can't play MP3s. Which is weird because I have all the gstreamer stuff from RPMFusion:
Code:
rpm -aq *gstreamer*

For completion's sake, here's the same for VLC:
Code:
rpm -aq *vlc*
python-vlc-1.1.0-8.20141115git.fc24.noarch
phonon-backend-vlc-0.9.0-1.fc24.x86_64
npapi-vlc-filesystem-2.2.0-0.1.fc24.x86_64
vlc-plugin-jack-3.0.0-4.749293f.fc24.x86_64
vlc-core-3.0.0-4.749293f.fc24.x86_64
vlc-3.0.0-4.749293f.fc24.x86_64
phonon-qt5-backend-vlc-0.9.0-1.fc24.x86_64
vlc-extras-3.0.0-4.749293f.fc24.x86_64
npapi-vlc-2.2.0-0.1.fc24.x86_64
This was all working fine before, although I do admit that I've not really been listening to music at my desktop in a while, because I'm usually listening to podcasts or playing a game where I want to hear the audio. Might be it stopped working when I upgraded to Fedora 24.

Any help or help with diagnosis would be great!

Thanks!

edit: An update on what's happening: Basically, when it gets to the end of a file on the VLC backend, it's doing the equivalent of a skip to the next track and that's why it appears not to be updated play stats. When you skip tracks it does not update the date played, but it does reduce the score. Just did a test and figured that out.

I don't see you having gstreamer1-plugins-ugly installed.

You shouldn't need all those gstreamer-* anymore. My system will play everything with phonon4qt5-backend-gstreamer (I'm listening to my mp3's right now in clementine):

Code:
dnf list installed "gstreamer*"

Perfect. Ugly is what I needed. I'd tried to use a * to make sure I had everything, but there was a packaging change that made that not work.

Thanks!
