Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 441617
doesn't work on most flash sites
Last modified: 2014-03-16 23:13:44 EDT
Description of problem:
For example, bothe scoreboard and the linked gamecast at
mlb.com don't work correctly.
None of the flash entries on the front page of uefa.com work.
youtube does not work (movies are just a black screen, no sound,
even with the proper plugins.)
I'm hard-pressed to find a site where it works at all.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
causes the plugin to abort.

After some work, video can be made to work in youtube, but audio is still broken.
swfdec was using a bad gst plugin for audio. Offending plugin remove, and it
sort of works. However, the volume slider in youtube and similar places has no
... that also fixes the tennis game abort. So, we're up to two!
Whoops, spoke too soon. Still aborts occasionally on that site.
*** Bug 441710 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
This bug has been a communication problem. The PA backend is still considered
experimental, but was enabled because the ALSA backend did not work with Pulseaudio.
A fix for the ALSA backend is in upstream git.
Pulled Benjamin's patch from git.
