Hello Everybody.

In the mean time, I have found a suitable answer to my original question:
> how to get Clementine playing MMS radio streams at *Ubuntu 14.04?

The key to this solution, I found at  - at the page dedicated to 
this question:

Clementine won't play .wma, with “Your GStreamer installation is missing a 
plugin” error

The key to the solution is the so-called 'ffmpeg' plugin for gstreamer.010.  I 
have installed this one via a backport:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg

After carrying out the above commands and restarting the system, Clementine 
started playing the MMS radio streams flawlessly.

Conclusion: what works for .wma files, apparently also works for MMS radio 

I hope this mail will benefit someone else.

Respectfully Yours,

Bas G. Roufs.
