Description Denis Humeau 2015-05-11 08:51:53 UTC
Trying to use gst-validate-1.0 the following way:

GST_DEBUG=3 gst-validate-1.0 playbin uri=file:/<my_file> --set-scenario=adaptive_video_size

Result is:
gst-validate-scenario.c:1417:_load_scenario_file:<GstValidateScenario@0x52d958> We do not handle action types set-restriction

In practice, the adaptive scenario files are present with the default scenarios, but not usable with devtools 1.4.0.

Is there a devtools version compatible with the use of set-restriction?

That action type is implemented in gst-validate-transcoding-1.0 only. That scenario should be used with that tool.

We could specify that in the scenario description.

You can check what action types are avalaible with the various gst-validate tools doing:

  gst-validate-1.0 --inspect-action-type
  gst-validate-transcoding-1.0 --inspect-action-type

Renaming the bug so that it is about adding the information in the `desciption, ` line of the scenario.

You can write simliare scenarios for dedicated pipeline using the set-property action setting caps on dedicated capsfilters elements.

@Denis Humeau: Do you feel like fixing that one? :)
