Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1259669
HTML 5 videos black screen and only sound working
Last modified: 2015-09-05 07:32:29 EDT
I received two feedbacks from Fedora 22 users about the following problem:
HTML 5 videos with only sound working and black screen.
That happened using different VGA (nVidia:nouveau and Intel) and different browsers (Firefox and Konqueror).
Both users have all gstreamer plugins 0.x and 1.x installed, and now I provide gstreamer packages list and lspci of one of the two machines

Please provide a way to repduce. You file this as a gstreamer1 bug, but it's really important to specify which browser this run in, is it Firefox or Epiphany or other WebKit base browser. Which version of Firefox or WebKit is being used ? Ideally, don't file upstream bug before some basic stuff has been sorted out in the distribution side.
It's a problem of gstreamer1-vaapi.
