Hi Bob,

    Thanks for your kind reply. Several more questions related to this. For
my project, I want to use MPEG4 simple profile and AMR-WB. About MPEG 4
Simple profile, your answer is clear, either I install gst-ffmpeg, or
install gst-plugins-bad For AMRWB, i need to install

My question is:
1. Which version of gst-plugins-bad version should I choose? It seems XVID
and AMRWB are in different gst-plugins-bad versions.

2. I have gstreamer 0.10.12 and gst-plugins installed (base 0.10.12,good
0.10.5, bad 0.10.4,  ugly 0.10.5). However, when I try to play video or
audio (gst-launch playbin * uri=file:///home/Music/test.avi* ), or when I
use gst-inspect alsasink, I always got error message that says I do not have
plugin installed. If I just type gst-inspect, I get nothing. I checked
/usr/bin, /usr/lib folders, the gst stuff are there. PATH seems to be
correct. What is the problem? Is it because I use the wrong version of the

Thanks for your kind help!
