Description Arnaud Vrac 2015-06-11 11:04:51 UTC
The assrender plugin is not automatically plugged anymore when an SSA subtitle track is processed, even if the ssaparse element is not installed; in this case I get the following warning:

WARNING No decoder available for type 'application/x-ass

    playbin: Check in autoplug_continue against the subtitle factory caps correctly
    6a2f017bfa9cb73c6db65eea0b84b1d5b56febb7 changed it to check the subtitle
    factory caps if there is a text-sink but we fail to get its sinkpad. What
    actually should be done here is to use the factory caps if there is no
    text-sink at all.
