Rhythmbox 2.99.1 uses gstreamer 1.0.x not 0.10. Its optdepends are:

gst-libav (optional) - Extra media codecs
gst-plugins-bad (optional) - Extra media codecs
gst-plugins-ugly (optional) - Extra media codecs

Thanks, problem solved. I cannot belive I actually filed one without looking at pacman -Qi. Thanks again, requesting closure.

Although, the song plays now, if you let it play through the whole song, it segfaults going to the next or if you switch songs (stopped or playing).

Another time perhaps. Thanks again

I can confirm this issue, playing now works, but changing tracks by clicking next causes the error reported.

The dependencies are not (entirely) related to the new SIGABRT issue with Rhythmbox 2.99. I've installed all optional dependencies and have narrowed down the real culprit to the ReplayGain plugin (like other users:

* Rythmbox crashes when using the ReplayGain plugin

* Steps to reproduce:
- Open Rhythmbox with ReplayGain plugin enabled, play a song, then play another song and the playre will crash.

I can confirm that for 2.99.1-2. With the ReplayGain plugin enabled Rhythmbox crashes with the above stacktrace when switching tracks.

This has been fixed in Rhythmbox 3.0, see also . I can confirm that the new Arch package of 3.0 fixes the issue for me.
