Description Gianluca Sforna 2010-06-03 06:49:18 UTC
After the new gstreamer packages with WebM support landed in Fedora 12 (in updates-testing still), it seems we miss a matching webkitgtk package to add out of the box support to gstreamer based browsers.

I tried rebuilding 1.2 from F13 and then playback works, however Benjamin Otte[1] suggested it's probably enough to pick the lastest 1.1.x


Comment 1 Rahul Sundaram 2010-06-03 07:10:36 UTC
I will take a look at pushing an update now.

Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2010-06-03 08:56:49 UTC
I have verified with a local mock build that there is no soname change.  It should be safe to commit and build for F-12 but I would like to get some more testing.  Here is a scratch build 


Sample video to test with Epiphany, Midori or any browser using Gstreamer


Comment 3 Gianluca Sforna 2010-06-03 09:30:46 UTC
that's the same version I rebuilt locally with mock and using happily ever since, if you think I'd need to test it anyway I could replace mine with the scratch build.

Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2010-06-03 09:33:50 UTC
If you have already tested a local build, that would serve the purpose just fine. I am just making it available for more people to test.

Comment 5 Martin Sourada 2010-06-03 10:31:00 UTC
Working here as well. Reopened about 30 tabs in midori without fault. WebM works on the test page, as well as on youtube.

Comment 6 Rahul Sundaram 2010-06-03 11:58:25 UTC
For any other testers, note that you need this gstreamer update as well
