The upgrade in todays apt full-upgrade is blocked by gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad

Debian bug #862024
Split More Widely Used Plugins into a Separate Package

Hi Paxmark1,

Did you find a solution for that problem ?

Kind regards,

Sorry for leaving that orphan thread - it was  probably part of a problem I fixed another way.    My personal preference is to never use the debmultimedia repo the last few years.  Somehow it got added it-  it conflicted with the original install.  I saw someone else having problems with similar in an unstable irc  and I applied that solution.  I got rid of all dmo's that had crept in and commented out the debmultimedia. 

If you like that debmultimedia repo see pavroo's  post above.
go with
Quotelibgstreamer-plugins-bad1.0 with dmo2 instead of dmo1
