Yeah, older versions of playbin2 required input-selector, which is in
-bad. Newer versions make it optional; it'll be moved to -base before
playbin2 is officially declared 'stable'.

As for the crash - well, you'll have to tell us where it's crashing
for us to be able to help you. However, I'd strongly suggest upgrading
to the current version first, if you can.
