Ubuntu – Can’t play wma, wmv or 3gp files


Since I installed ubuntu 14.04 I can no longer play wmv, wma or 3gp files with any player ( gxine – vlc – totem – etc.)

I have installed Ubuntu restricted extras and ffmpeg.

My friends, I found the solution, and the solution is remove all gstreamer packages, then reinstall it.

I have the same problem with Xubuntu 14.04, too. Solution above didn't work for me. The only workaround I found was to play wmv files using mplayer from terminal (since skinned version fails to load).

Like mplayer [filename]

Hope it helps.

EDIT: found out, that XBMC can play wmv files as well.
