Is it possible to install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg needed for Clementine on Ubuntu 14.10? (see Clementine won't play .wma, with "Your GStreamer installation is missing a plugin" error)


The user who maintains the PPA mentioned in those answers also has a PPA exclusively for gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg. So do:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/gstffmpeg-keep
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
  • For Ubuntu 15.10 one needs to download and install the package manually (see askubuntu.com/a/707612/173287). – Karl Richter Jan 6 '16 at 10:11
  • @KarlRichter it doesn't look like the package has changed much. Perhaps somebody should email the PPA maintainer requesting a bump in supported releases – muru Jan 6 '16 at 10:14
