GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 138435
[TRACKER] My media file doesn't playback!
Last modified: 2008-04-06 22:30:16 UTC
This is a general tracker for files that fail to playback with GStreamer and
spider (libgspltay, gst-player, totem).
* make sure there's no other similar bug for the same media type
* make a separate bug for your file that refuses to playback. Ask for a bugsquad
or GStreamer developer to confirm and make this bug depend on it. Please don't
do that yourself unless you know what you're doing.
* if it fails using opt but works using basicgthread, it doesn't belong here.
*ALWAYS* test with basicgthread.
* provide a link to a file or another way of obtaining the file.
adding first bug and myself to CC

all files are under /riff-avi/_bad_/
So, I'm considering reopening all bugs that does not have a test in the media
That way we can make sure that they always keep on working. It's really no point
fixing stuff at one point and noone noticing that they breaks at a later point.
I can help adding stuff to the testsuite, but I need media files (hopefully
small ones) and a pipeline which can do the playback. We should also separate
the muxing from the decoding and have separate tests for each stream in the
Add them to the testsuite, and if they fail, reopen them. Please note that I
don't know how the testsuite works. Please document that. I didn't even know
people wanted me to add those files to the testsuite.

We've done a really stellar job at using this bug for tracking broken media files. Do we want to continue to use it, or should I just close this bug?

I don't use it, and I don't have the impression anyone else does, so IMHO it should just be closed.
We should set up a public/automated gst-media-test before closing this IMHO. So we know these (and future) regressions of file playback don't go unnoticed...
... Or we could create a new bug for that and close this one.
No one's using this any longer, closing.
