Thread: Encodebin: Rhythmbox and Sound-Juicer can not rip CD

  1. #1

    Default Encodebin: Rhythmbox and Sound-Juicer can not rip CD

    Rhythmbox and Sound-Juicer fail when I try to rip an audio CD and convert it to MP3 or OGG. Both seem to have similar problems with something called "encodebin".

    This is what I get when I start sound-juicer from terminal:
    Code:
    ** (sound-juicer:14699): WARNING **: Unable to create encodebin
    And this is what I get when trying to rip a CD with rhythmbox:
    Code:
    Unable to open ~/.mtpz-data for reading, MTPZ disabled.
    (rhythmbox:15576): Rhythmbox-WARNING **: Unable to create encodebin
    I installed almost all gstreamer-plugins (also the ones from Packman). So does anybody have had similar problems and how can I make this important feature work?

    Does ~/.mtpz-data exist on you disk ? Did you try and create the file
    if it did not exist?

    In addition to my above comment try banshee. I could rip cds to ogg on
    openSUSE 12.3 using banshee

    This seems to be a problem with gstreamer.

    Please check that all gstreamer-* packages come from Packman, and that you have gstreamer-plugins-ugly-orig-addon installed (for encoding to mp3).

    Maybe try to switch all packages to the Packman versions, see here:
    SDB:Vendor change update - openSUSE

    I tried but everything seems fine, no package changed it's vendor. gstreamer-plugins-ugly-orig-addon is already installed.
    @vazhavandan I'm quite sure the error message with ~/.mtpz-data has nothing to do with the ripping problem. Nevertheless I created that directory, theproblem is still there.

    I disabled the Packman repo and made a zypper dup (so all packages are from main repo again) and now at least OGG Vorbis ripping works.
    Now let's see where the problem with MP3 lies.

    Well, libgstencodebin is contained in the package gstreamer-plugins-base. Do you have that installed?

    Maybe removing the gstreamer plugins cache helps? Try to delete the directory ~/.cache/gstreamer-1.0/.

    What do you get when you run:
    Code:
    gst-inspect-1.0 encodebin
    (you may need to install gstreamer-utils first)

    Thanks, I just reinstalled the restricted_formats ymp and now it works. I have no clue what has been wrong but now it works
