Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I can open and see any kind of file of a specific HDD on the network. All is working fine, except that I can't play any .MP3 file (directly from the network). When I open the file, RhythmBox try to load it (it takes a few long seconds) and then I have the next output: Problem occurred without error being set. This is a big in Rhythmbox or GStreamer.


This only happens with MP3 files. If I play the file with another sound player, I don't have any problem. So isn't the codec, but the program.

What can I do to play MP3 file with RhythmBox?

Have you got ubuntu-restricted-extras installed? –  fossfreedom Nov 5 '12 at 15:04
@fossfreedom Yes I have. –  Lucio Nov 5 '12 at 16:14
I believe you are closing your own question, right? –  Braiam Nov 1 '13 at 2:10
Absolutely. I have no idea if this error is still happening and I'd never knew why this happened. Little amount of people were interested too. Plus time, this are few of that things that I considered to close it. At least by the moment –  Lucio Nov 1 '13 at 14:20
