    BTW: 1.17.x is obsolete, please don't report bugs against it.

    This crash is already fixed in git commit 5d687b4.

    You can work around this crash by installing libnice-gstreamer, gstreamer-0_10-libnice, or whatever package in your distribution provides .../gstreamer-0.10/libgstnice010.so.

    Closing as FIXED.

    Hmm ok thanks, I have gstreamer0.10-nice installed on debian sid but no dice.

    I've just built 1.18 and tried again, I seem to hit the same issue though the backtrace is subtly different...

    1. you have to build git HEAD, because the fix hit the git repo after 1.18.0
    2. please make sure that your gstreamer-0.10 is correctly configured by executing gst-inspect-0.10 nice (see also this forum discussion)

    Reverted back to sid's .17 and indeed, moving ~/.gstreamer-0.10/registry.x86_64.bin resolved the issue for me! (gst-inspect previously reported '0 features' but now shows 2.)

    It's now reporting "Encryption settings of peer are incompatible with ours." so now I have a new problem as they say.

    Thank you very much for you assistance and speedy replies, it has been very much appreciated.
