Please try with playing back such a file with gst-play-1.0 from
gstreamer1.0-plugins-base-apps and paste the output here.

Also the output of dpkg -l gstreamer1.0\*

You're most likely missing a package. There were some plugin moves in
GStreamer 1.14, which might not have been taken up by the dependencies
of Amarok and Clementine.
