Clementine doesn't play streams -> "Couldn't create gstreamer source element for <url


since I had to re-install Slackware 13.1 on my netbook and I have now build Clementine on it. I can hear webstreams on my main machine, also running Slackware 13.1 and Clementine 0.5.
When I try to play a stream I get this error message in the console:
Couldn't create gstreamer source element for <streamURL>
I also tried a few of them to run in Audacious and they worked.

Any ideas how to fix this?

You need to upgrade clementine and some gst plugins.

Try this (look at the dependencies):
