not sure if that's the reason in your case, i'm using clementine, not 
rhythmbox, but i think it might very well be:

i used to use ffmpeg-complete, a package from AUR instead of the ffmpeg 
package from [extra]. after that AUR package received an update to a 
decoder file it became impossible to decode network streams. (forgot the 
exact file / codec name.)

switching back to the ffmpeg package from [extra] solved the problem for 
me. looking now i don't see that package, ffmpeg-complete, anymore, so 
no point reporting this as a bug.

ys phani.
