Ubuntu – Clementine won’t play .wma, with “Your GStreamer installation is missing a plugin” error


Here's a screenshot:

It displays messages like: "Clementine stopped." or displays songs that are not playing, and indicator icon is disappearing and reappearing. Does this happens only to me, or is it common bug in 14.04. I clean installed 14.04, and in 13.10 clementine worked fine. Any ideas? I installed ubuntu-restricted-extras.

Edit1: I restarted computer and theme changed:

Edit2: I just figured out that clementine won't play .wma files, and that's when errors start to emerge.

Edit3: VLC and the default ubuntu player play .wma without problems. Please help!

14.04 and later

I've checked the clementine 1.2.x dependencies and I can confirm it requires the gstreamer 0.10 plugins and since wma support is provided by the ffmpeg plugin you need to set up the following PPA to enable WMA support for 14.04 and later:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/gstffmpeg-keep
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
