Coping mp3 to iPod with Rhythmbox on Ubuntu 10.10

Recently I was unable to copy some audio files to my iPod Touch using Rhythmbox. The copy seems to be OK and I was able to playback the songs of the iPod using Rhythmbox. However, the playback from the iPod did not work. The play sign in the right top corner on the iPod was blinking and the iPod tried some next songs without playing anything. Didn’t it work some days ago?

After depressing searches I found the solution here. You need to install some extra (or simply all) gstreamer plugins with

sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-plugins*

and everything works fine again with Ubuntu 10.10, Rhythmbox, mp3s and the iPod again. I love open source!
