The output of "gst-inspect -b" under Fedora 17, in the above scenario
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #683565 +++
Installed fresh Fedora 14 i686 on Intel D510MO board
with BCM70012 based mini PCIe accelerator installed.
Performed any outstanding updates.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Installed gstreamer-plugin-cystalhd, which pulls
in libcrystalhd and associated firmware.
2. Expunged .gstreamer-0.10 in home directory
3. Ran gst-inspect -b
(gst-plugin-scanner:2098): GStreamer-WARNING **: Failed to load plugin '/usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstbcmdec.so': /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstbcmdec.so: undefined symbol: gst_video_format_new_caps

Not sure why this was assigned to me in any case the maintainer for the actual plugin might know more. Reassigning to that package. As far as I can tell that symbol should be provided by gstreamer-plugins-base

Woops, lets reassign that again.

This message is a notice that Fedora 14 is now at end of life. Fedora
has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 14. It is
Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no
longer maintained. At this time, all open bugs with a Fedora 'version'
of '14' have been closed as WONTFIX.
(Please note: Our normal process is to give advanced warning of this
occurring, but we forgot to do that. A thousand apologies.)
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, feel free to reopen
this bug and simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we were unable to fix it before Fedora 14 reached end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged to click on
"Clone This Bug" (top right of this page) and open it against that
version of Fedora.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
After updating to the following components:
the output of "gst-inspect -b" is reduced to the following:
Total count: 1 blacklisted file
Does this mean the problem is solved?
So far, there seems to be no h.264 acceleration.
Any tips on further testing would be appreciated.
If you have a crystalhd device, you could have video accelerated, but then it will need an new kernel device not merged into the mainline kernel
This problem is discussed here:
Nicolas, thanks for the info. It's too bad about it, as the accelerator co-processor concept has some potential. Even one of my desktop machines has a place where one of these could be plugged in.
I had seen the "warning" about the kernel driver many times, but I had assumed that progress had been made somewhere that could be factored into Fedora, as stand-alone XBMC seemed to successfully accelerate video the last time I tried it.
