Error on playing .aac files [SOLVED]

Postby zombie_ramboz » 2017-11-05 07:36

Hi,

On attempting to play .aac audio files in Quod Libet (I expect the application used for playback is not the issue here) I am seeing the below error:

"No Gstreamer element found to handle media format. Media format: MPEG-2 AAC decoder."

I have so far attempted the below to install the below via apt-get install:

libfdk-aac-dev -> not helped
aacparse -> not found
voaacenc -> not found
libavcodec-extra -> not helped
aac-enc -> not helped
libfaad2-dev -> no intallation candidate

And followed the below steps from https://wiki.debian.org/MultimediaCodecs:

# Type these commands for amd64 machines.
wget http://www.deb-multimedia.org/pool/non- ... _amd64.deb
dpkg -i w64codecs_20071007-dmo2_amd64.deb

Which did not help either.

How do I get .aac files playing on Debian Stretch?

EDIT: Bollocks, typo in the subject

my guess is try to install all gstreamer plugins (the good, the bad and the ugly).

I know, I wasn't able to edit it when using the edit function.

gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad did it for me, all working.

Ah I see, I had exceeded the allowed number of chars.
