Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-media

I'm experiencing same behaviour as in bug #37184.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Run gstreamer-properties.
2. Select ALSA or OSS as plugin for default input.
3. A message with an error like: "Failed to construct test pipeline for 'ALSA - Advanced Linux Sound Architecture'" will come up, depending on which input you select.

Last lines from debug output:

I am experiencing a similar bug, with the same error message in gstreamer-properties. If I run the gnome sound config applet and test "Sound Capture" from there, I get the message "gconfaudiosrc ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink profile=chat: Could not open resource for writing."
I'm running a dell Vostro 1500 with Intel HDA Audio, Sigmatel STAC 9205 chipset

Similar output here.
Graphical output attached.
