[lucid] Rhythmbox complains about missing id3 tag demuxer

Bug #527475 reported by Ben Blout on 2010-02-25
This bug affects 10 people
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
rhythmbox (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

When I start Rhythmbox, a 'Search for suitable plugin?' dialog opens.
In the terminal window that I start rhythmbox from, the message
Rhythmbox-Message: Missing plugin: gstreamer|0.10|rhythmbox-metadata|ID3 tag demuxer|decoder-application/x-id3
is displayed.

If I click 'Search', I get the popup window 'No packages with the requested plugins found', with the message 'The requested plugins are: ID3 tag demuxer'. At the same time, the following messages appear in the terminal:

/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/GnomeCodecInstall/MainWindow.py:302: DeprecationWarning: Accessed deprecated property Package.candidateRecord, please see the Version class for alternatives.
  record = pkg.candidateRecord
/usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/GnomeCodecInstall/MainWindow.py:307: DeprecationWarning: Accessed deprecated property Package.candidateRecord, please see the Version class for alternatives.
  major, minor = pkg.candidateRecord["Gstreamer-Version"].split(".")
Rhythmbox-Message: No installation candidate for missing plugins found.

I followed your instructions, and created the file. However, I have two reservations about posting the file - it contains my username (not a big problem, and easily redacted), and it apparently contains every song in my music library. Can I give you a useful log file without revealing the names of every song on my hard drive? Or is this information necessary?

It seems it's triggered by files that don't have any audio:

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We are sorry that we do not always have the capacity to look at all reported bugs in a timely manner. There have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time you reported the bug and your problem may have been fixed with some of the updates. It would help us a lot if you could test it on a currently supported Ubuntu version. When you test it and it is still an issue, kindly upload the updated logs by running apport-collect <bug #> and any other logs that are relevant for this particular issue.
