[PATCH] fix window popup in totem
Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:46:54 EDT
Totem + GStreamer-plugins 0.8.5 will pop up a new toplevel window for
a split second on startup. This is because of an unneeded state swap
to/from NULL by playbin. Playbin has been modified to reuse the
existing audio/video sinks so this doesn't happen.
Patch attached against current GStreamer-plugins in Rawhide (0.8.5-1).
Created attachment 105519 [details]
Reuse video/audio bins instead of resetting them to NULL (which causes a window popup on loading new media)
Hm, this patch seems fairly invasive, but on the other hand nothing we ship
besides Totem is using the playbin/decodebin plugins, so it should be safe.
I'm pretty sure this was fixed long ago in gstreamer-plugins. I certainly don't
see the behavior now in totem. Can this be closed?
yes, lets close it
