Description Ralph Giles 2006-08-20 06:44:48 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):

 2006-08-22  Tim-Philipp Müller  <tim at centricular dot net>

        * ext/flac/gstflacdec.c: (gst_flac_dec_scan_got_frame),
        (gst_flac_dec_write), (gst_flac_dec_loop),
        (gst_flac_dec_sink_event), (gst_flac_dec_chain),
        * ext/flac/gstflacdec.h:
          Make flac-in-ogg work (#352100).
