GStreamer Error: gst-stream-error-quark: Internal data stream error.

Asked by Mike on 2018-05-31

First off, thank you to the maintainers of this project, this software package is very useful when it works for me.

I'm not sure how long now, possibly a year now, SoundConverter stopped working for me. That might have been with Ubuntu 17.04 or so, I'm really not sure. All I know is that it stopped working upon upgrade to a newer version of Ubuntu. I figured that the maintainers would notice that it doesn't work with the latest version of Ubuntu and simply issue an updated version to correct whatever problem it had, but in the year or so since the problem began, there has been no fix. This problem is not specific to my machine or my installation of Ubuntu. I've duplicated the issue on multiple computers with clean installs of Ubuntu. In the time since the problem began, I simply used another software package to accomplish the same task (Audacity), but that does not do multiple file conversions in a batch like SoundConverter, so it's much less efficient for this task.

The problem is this -- Upon completion of audio conversion to MP3, SoundConverter encounters and error and does not complete the conversion. The error is what I stated as the subject of this question -- "GStreamer Error: gst-stream-error-quark: Internal data stream error."

I have the following installed packages running on Ubuntu (Xubuntu actually) 18.04. I can provide additional system properties if requested.
Soundconverter version 3.0.0-2
gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly version 1.14.0-1

Thank you!
