GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 352110
[flacdec] no support for ogg flac
Last modified: 2006-11-14 12:37:36 UTC
GStreamer, at least as shipped in Ubuntu 6.06+ supports native flac but not ogg flac. Steps to reproduce:
$ sudo apt-get install flac
$ flac file.wav
$ totem file.flac
[ plays correctly ]
$ flac --ogg file.wav
$ totem file.ogg
[ Alert box:
Totem could not play 'file:///home/giles/media/monty-vorbis-postfish.ogg'.
You do not have a decoder installed to handle this file. You might need to install the necessary plugins. ]
This is probably a bug in oggdemux not recognizing the stream type, but I believe the actual flacdec component is in gst-plugins-good.
Fixed in -good CVS (I am surprised that it did throw that error though, I'd have expected it to just do nothing):
