    Gstreamer MP3 plugin


      Hey there.


      I followed this document to get wav files to play using Gstreamer and pulseaudio over bluetooth to a speaker. At the end of the document it says:

      "You may run into issues playing .mp3, stay tuned for updates."

      Has anyone got mp3s to work? I'm currently using the wavparse plugin:

      gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location= /home/root/music/sound.wav ! wavparse ! pulsesink

      I would expect it to be mad for MP3:

      gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location= /home/root/music/sound.mp3 ! mad ! pulsesink

      But if I try that I get an error:  "Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in."

      I've got mp3s to play using mpg123 and alsa from AlexT's repo and tutorials.

      I'm wondering if anyone has the gstreamer plugins sorted
