I am currently unable to use Banshee for music. When I attempt to import music into Banshee, it locks up, and I'm also unable to do the same by dragging the files into the program. I am running Fedora 24 on 64bit Linux, kernel version 4.6.4-301

This is the Terminal output for that Banshee session:

Checking for GStreamer plugins I have all the possible plugin packages installed, including GStreamer1.

On another note, alternatives Rhythmbox also has issues with MP3 importing. Giving no output. (I found the package solution to Audacious)

Is there a solution out there? I'm not a huge fan of Clementine but if I have to use it I'll stick with it.

It appears there is a problem with the Podcasts extension. For me, disabling the Podcasts extension fixed the problem.

To disable the Podcasts extension, go to: Edit -> Preferences -> Extensions tab. Under Core, untick the Podcasts extension.

Here is a related Ubuntu bug report.
