Description Benjamin Otte 2010-06-11 14:41:25 UTC
The GStreamer base plugins package needs to be updated to support WebM.

Comment 3 Benjamin Otte 2010-06-11 15:17:42 UTC
I'm not sure what constitutes a bug fix in RHEL terms, so let me elaborate:

It's an update to a more recent upstream release - 0.10.29 to be exact. RHEL6 currently uses 0.10.26.  The GStreamer project doesn't do bugfix-only releases so new releases do include new features. They do of course remain strictly backwards compatible.

I want to upgrade the whole set of GStreamer packages to the current F12/F13 state because I feel a lot more confident in using a tested set of packages than trying to backport a potentially rather big set of changes.
