Patch that improves 3GP typefind (2.94 KB, patch)

Description Tommi Myöhänen 2006-02-17 10:37:34 UTC
Please describe the problem:
Type detection fails with some 3gp clips and reports the mimetype to be "video/
quicktime" instead. For some 3GP clips typefind works as follows:

$ gst-typefind test.3gp
test.3gp - application/x-3gp
$ gst-typefind test.3gp
test.3gp - video/quicktime
$ gst-typefind test.3gp
test.3gp - application/x-3gp

So, it cannot decide what format the file actually is.

I will attach a patch that improves 3GP type detection.

Steps to reproduce:

Actual results:

Expected results:

Does this happen every time?

Looks fine to me. Tommi, perhaps you should arrange CVS commit access to just commit this sort of thing directly?
Comment 3 Edward Hervey 2006-02-22 10:38:12 UTC
commited, thanks again. You still might want to look into getting a cvs commit access. More information here :
