Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gstreamer0.10-gnomevfs

When I try to load files over smb into rhythmbox, I get import errors
"Could not read from resource." I tried using gst-launch-0.10 and it
also didn't work:

david at helicon:~$ gst-launch-0.10 gnomevfssrc location="smb://david@caladan.lan.local/Files/David's%20Extra%20Music/Beatles%2C%20The/Live%20at%20the%20BBC%20(disc%201)/01.%20The%20Beatles%20-%20Beatle%20Greetings.flac" ! testsink
