Description Thibault Saunier 2013-10-16 20:49:29 UTC
I am not 100% sure what is the reason why we add some caps and not others in there, I just know that in my case I need subpicture/x-dvb to be concidered raw and I can see subpicture/x-dvd in there, so it seems to be right to me.

If you mean decodebin, you can change the "final" caps via the decodebin "caps" property.
Comment 3 Thibault Saunier 2013-10-17 11:13:05 UTC
I know that, just that the default caps are currently:

     "audio/x-raw; " \
     "text/x-raw; " \
     "subpicture/x-dvd; " \

So I though adding

    "subpicture/x-dvb; " \

make sense in that case.

This is sensible.
Comment 5 Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2013-10-17 19:35:40 UTC
Yes, definitely
Comment 6 Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2013-10-17 19:36:16 UTC
Note that in playbin these caps are not used for subtitles, as it's all handled inside subtitleoverlay via magic ;) But for consistency it would be good to get that in
