Cannot seek in flac files
Last modified: 2009-10-19 05:44:35 EDT
I can seek in mp3 and oga file just fine with Totem, but if I try the same with flac files, I get an error:
Es ist ein Fehler aufgetreten
Konnte den Datenstrom nicht decodieren.
which roughly translates into
An error has occurred
Could not decode the data stream
The flac file was produces with sound-juicer using the default flac profile. It plays fine in totem as long as I don't seek.
Also, seeking the same file(s) works fine in other gstreamer based apps (tested with banshee).
Same here: An error occurred; Could not decode stream.
Only with flac files.
I Have just noticed that I get the same error when playing flac on my other system (Ubuntu, with totem 2.27.x from git) so this seems to be an upstream bug.
The bug persists in totem-2.26.3-1.fc11.i586.
gstreamer-plugins-good-0.10.15-4.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update gstreamer-plugins-good'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F11/FEDORA-2009-7934
I do no longer see the warning/error pop up, and the seeking _seems_ to work, kind of (time moves on correctly when moving the slider). However, after the seek (when no longer moving the slider), playback does not resume. Pressing play/pause again does not change this.
Just the error message is gone, seeking does work but not play.
gstreamer-plugins-good-0.10.15-4.fc11 has been pushed to the Fedora 11 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
As Steve has also confirmed that this is not fixed, can someone please reopen the bug?
A note on the upstream bug would have been more useful.
For reference, where exactly can we find this upstream bug?
To whoever can reproduce the problem, please file a separate upstream bug, with the data required in:
I can still reproduce the bug on my Fedora 11 system (which is unchanged from what Fedora provides). However, on my other system I recently upgraded all gstreamer modules to git master and there it works now. So I guess the fix here depends on some unreleased fix in gstreamer or gst-plugins-basic?
I just found out that seeking flac works fine in totem on rawhide (with very latest -good). So I installed the F12 totem packages on F11 and flac seeking magically works now. So, either the F12 totem package has a special patch or the problem is fixed upstream in 2.27.x
F11 has the same version of gstreamer packages as F12 available, so I'll assume this is fixed.
This in not fixed in F11, please reopen!
