This sounds very much like a configuration issue then, and not a
GStreamer-specific issue.

That's good. That's the expected sound. If it works there, it should work in
totem-gstreamer and rhythmbox etc. too.

Are you actually using totem-gstreamer and not totem-xine? (The about dialog
from the totem Help menu will tell you)

> No sound is produced when the plugin is autodetect.

Right, that sounds a bit weird. Maybe you could run this:

 $ GST_DEBUG=*:5 gst-launch-0.10 audiotestsrc ! queue ! audioconvert !
autoaudiosink  2>dbg.log

and compress the log with 'bzip2 dbg.log' and then attach the log? (assuming
you don't get sound with this command line)

That does sound like an alsa driver problem to me.
