Description Jonathan Liu 2011-08-06 04:35:42 UTC
GStreamer pulseaudio plugin gives an error in applications that call pa_stream_proplist_update() if the remote server does not support it (e.g. on Windows or distributions running older version of PulseAudio daemon). This prevents many media programs from being able to play back files.

The referenced URL describes the issue in more detail and provides a patch.

I think this is obsolete these days, since we now require newer pulseaudio versions, but I've removed the fatal error anyway, since it seems the right thing to do to me:

    pulsesink: don't error out if pa_stream_proplist_update() with new tags fails
    Shouldn't really happen these days, but if it does, it's not really
    a problem either.

PS: it's best to re-attach patches here in bugzilla instead of saying 'there is a patch on the launchpad bug'. If it's not attached here, it gets missed.
