Gstreamer, Movies and Debian Sid

Filed under: Debian, Tuxicity — tuxicity @ 11:37 am

To play movies I use Totem, (Movie Player in the Gnome menu) but for some reason I could not play the .avi files and .asf files anymore.

Totem is no longer able to play those files after my last (todays) update.

So I decided to try the gstreamer plugins from Debian-Multimedia,  unstable (Sid) repository.

I installed the packages gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg-full and gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad.

Installing the packages auto-removed the packages i originally used from the Debian repository being gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg and gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad.

Movies play fine again now.
