Package: gstreamer0.10-tools
Version: 0.10.25-4
Severity: normal

This is the output I get when trying to reach a .ram radio stream with gst-launch-0.10. (I guess this is the very cause of my rhythmbox failing to play some streams.) I think I have all the necessary gstreamer plugins/components installed. Any tips?

gst-launch-0.10 playbin uri="http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r1.ram"
