Description Tim-Philipp Müller 2009-07-22 12:05:00 UTC
Sometimes I get a pulseaudio error in totem when switching tracks:

 pa_stream_get_sink_input_info() failed: Invalid argument

This is with gst-plugins-good from git and pulseaudio 0.9.15-4 from debian sid.

Debug log attached.

    pulsesink: avoid using ivalid stream indexes
    when we get an invalid stream index from pulse because we were just starting,
    avoid using it for getting and setting the volume.
    Fixes #589365
