[gst-devel] flacenc problems

I've been having a problem getting sound-juicer to extract my CD's to
flac files. And I seem to have narrowed it down to gstreamer. Whenever I
try to encode something with gst-launch using flacenc I get this error

gst-launch filesrc location=01-talib_kweli-kay_slay_intro-mob.mp3 !
mad ! flacenc ! filesink location=/tmp/01.flac
RUNNING pipeline ...
ERROR: from element /pipeline0/flacenc0: Could not initialize supporting
Additional debug info:
gstflacenc.c(589): gst_flacenc_chain: /pipeline0/flacenc0:
could not initialize encoder (wrong parameters?)
Execution ended after 2 iterations (sum 12740000 ns, average 6370000 ns,
min 247000 ns, max 12493000 ns).

I get the same error from sound-juicer with the CD as source, but I
didn't have the exact command line sound-juicer used. If needed I can
always send the output of sound-juicer --gst-debug-level=something

I'm running gstreamer 0.8.7 and gst-plugins 0.8.6.

Any ideas?


How long a minute is depends on which side of the bathroom door you're
