Description Philippe Normand 2015-02-03 09:24:49 UTC
This works, with video/x-raw RGBA caps: gst-launch-1.0 videotestsrc ! glimagesink

But when the gst-omx video decoder is used and outputs EGLImages the sink only flashes what looks like a corrupted frame and then nothing.

Is it a regression form 1.4 ?

Yes it's a regression from 1.4.5. Sorry I should've mentioned it earlier :)
Comment 3 Nicolas Dufresne (ndufresne) 2015-02-03 16:05:07 UTC
Then it's a  must fix ;-P
Comment 4 Julien Isorce 2015-02-03 22:41:25 UTC
Are you sure it was working with 1.4.4 ? I do not see any suspicious commit between 1.4.4 and 1.4.5 here . There are much more changes between 1.4.3 and 1.4.4.

Once you have a commit point where it works and a commit point where it fails, it would be great if you could run a git bisect. (between steps, run autogen but only build libgstgl and gl plugins to save time).
Comment 5 Tim-Philipp Müller 2015-02-03 22:45:38 UTC
Julien, I think it was a regression between 1.4.5 and git master, not 1.4.4 and 1.4.5 ?
Comment 6 Julien Isorce 2015-02-03 23:18:00 UTC
Ah thx Tim, make sense for me now :)

Philippe was it working from your commit ?
Comment 7 Philippe Normand 2015-02-04 07:58:12 UTC
No :( That commit only fixes the build.
