Audio plugin fails to load. Namespace Gst not available - Debian Jessie Install

Cc: Parent Tickets:


Upon installation of mediagoblin, and trying to activate the audio plugin, it fails to load properly.

OS Debian 8 / Devuan Jessie

When executing the ./gmg update command the following error is received:

File "/srv/", line 44, in <module>

gi.require_version('Gst', '1.0')

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/", line 100, in require_version

raise ValueError('Namespace %s not available' % namespace)

ValueError: Namespace Gst not available

The workaround is the same as described on this page:

The following NEW packages will be installed:

gir1.2-gst-plugins-base-1.0 gir1.2-gstreamer-1.0 gstreamer1.0-tools

Appears the documentation is missing a dependancy for Debian Jessie.
