Package: parole
Severity: important

I did the following:
1. Installed parole
2. Invoked it on a 128 kbit mp3-file.
3. Received error message that a plugin is needed to handle ID3-tags.
4. Installed gstreamer-plugins-good.
5. Repeated 3, received error message that a plugin is needed to play this
6. Installed gstreamer-plugins-bad.
7. See 5.
8. Installed gstreamer-ffmpeg.
9. See 5.
10. Tried to play a stream from di.fm, received error message that a plugin is
needed to play this format.
11. Inserted an audio-CD, right-clicked Track 1, "open with parole" in Thunar.
Nothing happened.

I expect a default install of parole to play common media formats such as mp3,
so I consider it a bug if it doesn't.
