Description Brendan Long 2013-05-15 17:39:02 UTC
When I build gst-plugins-bad from git, I get:

  CC     libgstopenal_la-gstopenalsink.lo
gstopenalsink.c: In function 'gst_openal_sink_parse_spec':
gstopenalsink.c:785:20: error: 'AL_FORMAT_MONO_ALAW_EXT' undeclared (first use in this function)
gstopenalsink.c:785:20: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in
gstopenalsink.c:788:20: error: 'AL_FORMAT_STEREO_ALAW_EXT' undeclared (first use in this function)

The problem appears after commit 30d7908df294a9526e090c7e0270093a6740cfb5 (bug #698013).

I'm on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit, using gstreamer, gst-plugins-{good,bad,ugly} from git (master). I'll try to narrow it down further.
