Package: gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
Version: 0.10.7-1
Severity: important

As stated in the subject, gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg prevents rhythmbox from starting. When launching rhythmbox from the command line I get:

$ rhythmbox

ERROR: Caught a segmentation fault while loading plugin file:

Please either:
- remove it and restart.
- run with --gst-disable-segtrap and debug.
Error re-scanning registry , child terminated by signal
Run 'rhythmbox --help' to see a full list of available command line options.

Rhythmbox version is 0.12.0-2.

I need gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg to play .asx radio streams.

Rhythmbox works fine when gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg is purged, a part from playing .asx streams.

Do you know of any solutions or workarounds?

Kind regards! Fabio.
