Description Eugenia Loli-Queru 2008-06-25 10:13:18 UTC
Please describe the problem:
Download this HDV file:
Load it on Totem. The first time you load it, it doesn't play at all. The second time you load it, possibly because of some cache, it does play, but the timeline is all wrong (it moves really slowly on it like it's supposedly a really long video, even if the video is only a few seconds long in reality). Trying to replay the video after you do a seek in that timeline, Totem freezes and needs restarting. Gstreamer on latest ubuntu here. VLC and mplayer play the file without a problem.

Steps to reproduce:

Actual results:

Expected results:

Does this happen every time?

Works fine with the Fluendo MPEG demuxer installed, only the length of the file is wrong.

I filed this particular bug upstream:

Try to seek on that timeline though, it freezes Totem here.
Comment 3 Bastien Nocera 2008-06-25 21:37:10 UTC
It probably freezes because you're seeking past the actual length of the file. I'd wait until the mpeg demuxer bug is fixed before jumping to conclusions.
Comment 4 Bastien Nocera 2008-09-02 16:27:34 UTC
The Fluendo MPEG demuxer is now in GStreamer itself.
Comment 5 Edward Hervey 2009-06-30 16:37:01 UTC
Works fine now with git and playbin2.
