Add opus codec element (against master) (1.06 KB, patch)

Description Romain DEP. 2012-08-04 18:29:53 UTC
Description of problem:

The Opus audio codec is getting more and more attraction as it starts being used in a brunch of browsers (firefox 15, opera 12, Webkit, …) and reached in unifying high quality codecs (for HQ sound restitution) with low latency ones (audio/phone conversations) what makes it a perfect match for any audio web content and communication (WebRTC).
But for opera and webkit to deal with the opus format they need an underlying gstreamer which can decode it, that's why there is a need for gstreamer to be compiled against opus.

Additional info:

I think this should be backported to f17 too
I stay around for testing

Comment 1 Fabian Deutsch 2012-09-06 10:48:18 UTC
Opus seems to be part of upstream gstreamer-plugins-bad. Is there a reason why it's not packaged, any legal reasons?
Or maybe just a configure switch is missing.

Add opus codec element (against master)

The patch adds the opus plugin to gstreamer-plugins-bad-free.

Or should it go into extras?

Nice ! I got the update on f17, it works nice. You got my karma ;)

Thanks for having fixed this, now opera and midori browsers should be able to decode opus files (thus I didn't tried by myself).
