"Should we include ffmpeg also in opt depts?"

Nah, gst-libav depends on it already.

Actually I was going to test them my self too, but thanks for doing the hard work! :)

Should we include ffmpeg also in opt depts?

ok so with some real-world testing (shouldn't have initially believed html5 test sites ;\ ) and different gst plugin combinations i now see:

good+bad OR good+ugly gets you mp3 playback

good+bad results in test site claiming you have AAC support but in practice it doesn't appear to work (i think mp4 container is unsupported, i suppose AAC stream in some other containers might work).

good+libav (without bad) provides MP3 and AAC support anyway (and the AAC support works in practice), and of course h264 video.

So plugins-bad is barely worth mentioning, only someone who for some reason wants to avoid having ffmpeg installed would be interested... basically you had it right in the first place sumt... i'll just slink away now, lol.

added gst-plugins-bad to optdepends for aac and mp3 audio.
vp8 and vp9 work for me without any gst plugins.

26.2.1 release was tagged in their git about an hour ago, so there'll be new binaries very soon.

From my own testing, gst-plugins-ugly certainly isn't needed for h.264, but gst-libav and gst-plugins-good are (tested with

Those vp9/8 videos work fine for me using both the -bin package and my natively compiled package.

I've no idea which gst-plugins are required by what. Does this vp9-8 sample video page crash also for you? I had no success even with all of the gst-plugins installed.

I'd have thought it'd just be direct replacement of the gst 0.10 optdepends with the equivalent gst 1.0 package.
i.e. before it was this:

optdepends = gstreamer0.10-base-plugins: vorbis decoding, ogg demuxing
optdepends = gstreamer0.10-good-plugins: webm and mp4 demuxing
optdepends = gstreamer0.10-bad-plugins: aac, vp8 and opus decoding
optdepends = gstreamer0.10-ugly-plugins: h.264 and mp3 decoding
optdepends = gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg: h.264 decoding

Change to this:

optdepends = gst-plugins-base: vorbis decoding, ogg demuxing
optdepends = gst-plugins-good: webm and mp4 demuxing
optdepends = gst-plugins-bad: aac, vp8 and opus decoding
optdepends = gst-plugins-ugly: h.264 and mp3 decoding
optdepends = gst-libav: h.264 decoding

Travis confirmed in an email that base/good plugin sets are required for basic functionality, and gst-libav is needed for h.264. He said there should be some documentation when 26.2 got released, though I've not had chance to look for it yet.

sumt commented on 2016-04-05 19:50

According to the issue topic [1], gst-libav and gst-plugins-good are needed for h.264 video.

korrode commented on 2016-04-01 22:51

Hey sumt, in case you didn't already know: as of 26.2.0 PM is going to use gstreamer 1.0 (rather than 0.10), so optdepends will need changing.
