Description of problem:
The standard audiofile package lacks an implementation of afOpenVirtualFile, the
implementation of this has been merged into the official audiofile CVS tree over
a year ago, but even after repeated requests by us and others has new release
been made. Attached is the patch that Debian has shipped for a long time now
containing this fix.

The GStreamer audiofile plugin needs this addition in order to work.

Any chance audiofile has made a release in the last few months?

This patch looks like it changes the library ABI, plus it's just 
plain huge...

Comment 3 Christian Schaller 2003-07-30 22:38:26 UTC
Sorry, no audiofile release in the last months :(
The patch has been shipping with Debian for a long time and Frederic has merged
it into Mandrake afaik, so it should be rather safe. 

Without this patch the GStreamer audiofile plugin has no way of working.

Comment 4 Christian Schaller 2003-10-08 17:16:35 UTC
I noticed that there actually was a new audiofile release recently. Which I
guess makes the need for this patch obsolete.

Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2003-10-08 20:07:25 UTC
Yep, but we do need to upgrade audiofile I think (maybe only in the next release

Comment 6 Colin Walters 2004-05-19 19:28:55 UTC
I verified our latest audiofile has afOpenVirtualFile.
