Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1000257
owncloud bundles Flash and Silverlight files
Last modified: 2013-12-21 13:50:04 EST
This package contains binary files that are typically excuted by the Flash
player or another similar program.
These files are not permitted in Fedora.  Everything we produce needs to
be built from source. 
The offending file(s) shipped in this package are:
/usr/share/owncloud/apps/media/js/jQuery.jPlayer.2.2.0.source/actionscript/Jplayer.fla (Flash source)
The .fla files aren't technically prohibited, but are source files and thus
useless to most end users.
If these files are just a fallback for something that is now supported by modern
web standards like the HTML5 <video> element, please just remove the binaries.
If removing these files would seriously cripple your application, please let me
know so we can figure out a solution.
If you have any questions, please shout. Thanks!
owncloud-4.5.13-3.fc18 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 18.
owncloud-4.5.13-3.fc19 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 19.
In addition to the above two updates I have done builds for F20 and Rawhide with the plugins removed. I did a quick check that the two plugins at least function where HTML5 playback is possible, and don't cause Owncloud to explode when it isn't (for videoviewer). Further testing would be appreciated. Only the 'media' and 'videoviewer' apps should be affected.
owncloud-4.5.13-3.fc18 has been pushed to the Fedora 18 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
owncloud-4.5.13-3.fc19 has been pushed to the Fedora 19 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
I believe I've now fixed this on all live Fedora branches, but it may need to go to EL6 too.
owncloud-4.5.13-3.el6 has been submitted as an update for Fedora EPEL 6.
I've just sent the el6 update stable, so closing.
owncloud-4.5.13-3.el6 has been pushed to the Fedora EPEL 6 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
