Package: gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad
Version: 0.10.23-7.1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

Here is how to reproduce the problem:
 * Install brasero and brasero-cdrkit (see bug 681192).
 * Insert a blank DVD in the drive.
 * brasero &
 * Click on 'Video project'
 * Add a 500MB MPEG2 video.
 * Brasero says 'Blank DVD+R disk : 1 h 49 of free space'
 * Click on the 'Burn...' button. At that point you get the following error:

      All required applications and libraries are not installed.

      Please install the following manually and try again:
      mplex (GStreamer plugin)

The missing library is actually libgstmplex.so which is supposed to be provided by the gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad package.

I marked this bug as important because brasero is GNOME's default DVD burning application and burning DVD Video disks is an important part of its functionality.

As a workaround one can install the gstreamer0.10-plugins-really-bad package from the deb-multimedia repository (http://deb-multimedia.org/faq).
