Description Bastien Nocera 2006-12-04 09:18:00 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #215556 +++

This is with the latest fluendo plugins, and with totem 2.16.3, playback
of streams from cnn.com freezes after a few seconds.

This is said to be fixed in gst-plugins-base cvs.

Should be:

With change entry:
2006-09-15  Wim Taymans  <wim@fluendo.com>

        * gst/playback/gstplaybasebin.c: (gst_play_base_bin_class_init),
        (gst_play_base_bin_init), (fill_buffer), (check_queue),
        (queue_threshold_reached), (gst_play_base_bin_set_property),
        * gst/playback/gstplaybasebin.h:
        Don't use a 0 low watermark when buffering, it is catching starvation
        way too late. Instead, use a 3 second queue with 30 and 95
        percent low/high watermarks.
        Added queue-min-threshold property to configure low watermark.
        Use new _buffering message API.
        Make queue_threshold variable big enough to store a uint64 time value.
        API: playbin::queue-min-threshold property.

It might bring in some regressions
(http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=357577), and require some backporting
of the buffer API, though it should be quite straight forward (ie. just a
cut'n'paste job).

We might also need to backport some bits out of:
which is one of the regressions introduced by the patch above.

Bastian, can you open a new bug for that ?
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2006-12-13 11:18:54 EST
The patches didn't apply cleanly, so I applied them manually.
Can you look over the patch to see if I made any mistakes, Bastian ?

From http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=357577 :
$ gst-launch-0.10 playbin uri=http://pancrace.tv/picts/PANCRACE-TV.jpg

seems works. VERIFIED.
