As you can see from the subject, I am getting an error from the latest version of xnoise after install. I have tried installing gstreamer 1.0 good, bad and ugly plugins. I am using Ubuntu 12.10 64-bit.

Any ideas as to a solution?

I got the same error message from Totem after upgrading my ALSA-only system from Quantal to Raring. (I removed PulseAudio long ago because it causes intolerable problems.) Turns out the new version of Totem uses gstreamer1.0 instead of gstreamer0.10, and although I've had the gstreamer0.10-alsa installed for a long time, the upgrade process wasn't smart enough to install gstreamer1.0-alsa when it was installing the other gstreamer1.0 packages.

Manually installing gstreamer1.0-alsa made Totem work again.

In my case, installing gstreamer1.0-plugins-good fixed the issue, because autoaudiosink is part of that package.

Thanks for the reply, but I already have it installed. Very weird. – globetrotterdk Mar 10 '13 at 11:39

The probable problem is that you are using ffmpeg (real ffmpeg not the transitional package in the ubuntu repository) and that may be conflicting with gstreamer-ffmpeg. Please remove the ffmpeg and the associated libraries (x264, libopus, fdk-aac, libvpx, yasm)

you could reinstall/compile it after you have installed xnoise.


I apparently also had the same issue, which was removed using the above method.

I had this problem and after installing gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio Install gstreamer1.0-pulseaudio, everything is working. I recommend installing that package.
