Setting pipeline to PAUSED ...
ERROR: Pipeline doesn't want to pause.
ERROR: from element /GstPlayBin:playbin0: A FILE protocol source plugin is
required to play this stream, but not installed.
Additional debug info: ..\..\gst\playback\gstplaybasebin.c(1673):
gen_source_element (): /GstPlayBin:playbin0: No URI handler for file
Setting pipeline to NULL ...
FREEING pipeline ...
I get the same message about needing a FILE protocol source plugin.
gst-launch is finding the modules, so the warning about being unable to load
them means just that. I would suppose a version problem, but the modules
and the exe's all came out of the same installer -- one that apparently
works for everyone else.
