Description David Nielsen 2011-04-04 10:02:45 UTC
it would greatly benefit Fedora and thus the GNOME3 liveUSB distro if the
following patch was applied to gstreamer-plugins-good. The patch is accepted upstream in .28 (F15 appears to ship .27) and has had extensive testing in Ubuntu.

http://cgit.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/gst-plugins-good/commit/?id=1e2c1467ae042a3c6bb1a6bc0c07aeff13ec5edb

Doing so prevents highly reproducible crashing when playing back media on a
low-end machines such as a netbook.

see:
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pulseaudio/+bug/644644 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Playback media on low-end machine
Actual Results:  
Pulseaudio will crash or the excessively high CPU load will cause severe
skipping

Expected Results:  
Smooth playback, this is 2011
