Description Sergey Scobich 2006-10-23 11:42:38 UTC
Hi, it seems that in gstbasesrc.c in gst_base_src_start() the variable size is not always initialized and used later.
It happends when basesrc->segment.format != GST_FORMAT_BYTES for ex GST_FORMAT_TIME in my case.
later size is used here:

/* run typefind if we are random_access and the typefinding is enabled. */
if (basesrc->random_access && basesrc->data.ABI.typefind && size != -1) {

may be it is better to initialize size with -1 from the start.

        * libs/gst/base/gstbasesrc.c: (gst_base_src_wait_playing),
        (gst_base_src_start), (gst_base_src_activate_push):
        Make sure size is always initialized. Fixes #364388.
