Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

Rhythmbox (gstreamer?) does not detect the bitrate of AAC files.

This can break bitrate sorted auto-playlists, and is a basic feature for a common format which should be fixed.

Thanks for your report, that's probably a gstreamer issue rather than totem or rhythmbox one, can you attach an example of an AAC file to the report for testing purposes? thanks.

gstreamer is not the right sourcepackage, removing.

Bug 265096 seems like the same issue for flac files which turned out to be a bug in rhythmbox, so reopening that task.
