Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

I am using Ubuntu studio 9.10 and Rhythmbox 0.12.5.
Roughly every hour (I have never got the exact time) the song pauses and a red circle with a line through appears in one of the columns. When I try to play the song again I get the error:

Could not start playback

Internal GStreamer error: pad problem ...

I then have to restart Rhythmbox and it's fine. (actually I have to close it, start it again twice as the first time the icon in the system tray dosent appear and the problem is still there, i think this is because I do this too quickly).

I do use an mp3 decoder for all my music. (if this helps)

I forgot to mention that while I ran the debug I tried also to rip a CD which I had already done previously. It asked me whether I wanted to overwrite the file and so I cliked no. It then gave the error: Could not load profile mime type". I hope that this does not effect this.
