When using Fedora24 with Wayland session, movie playback in Totem and Gnome-Mplayer fails when playing x264/mkv files, both SD and HD.

Simply switching the session back to Gnome fixes the issue.

Do you have gstreamer vaapi plugin installed? If yes, try uninstalling it.

Anyway, it would be useful to add some info on your GStreamer setup (installed packages + versions).

I cannot confirm this issue, as long as I don't have gstreamer1-vaapi (Fedora package) installed. This is my Totem + GStreamer setup:

As you can see, I do have vaapi installed, and its from Negativos repository, as is libav.

I'll try removing vaapi as suggested and will get back with results.
Comment 4 Andrew 2016-09-02 20:08:55 UTC

I uninstalled gstreamer1-vaapi.x86_64, rebooted and videos now work without erroring, and the video looks fine.

However, anything that's High Definition with DTS surround sound, has serious audio artifacts.  It's like noise in the sound.  DD5.1 is ok.
Comment 5 Andrew 2016-09-02 20:19:56 UTC
amendment:  not quite every film with DTS has sound issues, but most in my collection.
Comment 6 Christian Stadelmann 2016-09-26 19:21:12 UTC
So the main issue is a buggy vaapi stack in or below gstreamer. Please reassign it to gstreamer-vaapi.
Comment 7 Andrew 2016-09-27 09:28:55 UTC
re-assigning to Gstreamer.  Problem lies in gstreamer-vaapi, but I could not find that in the list, so I assigned to backend.
