Summary: gstreamer fail to play x-apetag MP3s
AssignedTo: gstreamer-bugs at lists.sourceforge.net
ReportedBy: nigelenki at comcast.net
QAContact: gstreamer-bugs at lists.sourceforge.net
GNOME version: 2.13/2.14
GNOME milestone: Unspecified
Please describe the problem:
Apparently gstreamer-0.10 will look at an application/x-apetag MP3 and fail to
play it. This is very annoying, as I have no idea what idiot tagged the MP3
with monkey's audio tags or whatever cracksmoke this is; but I'd rather not
randomly encounter broken MP3s that worked before.
Steps to reproduce:
This can be reproduced by attempting to play a 10MB MP3 I have that I probably
$ gst-launch-0.10 playbin
Setting pipeline to PAUSED ...
** Message: don't know how to handle application/x-apetag
Pipeline is PREROLLING ...
expected results occur in gstreamer-0.8:
$ gst-launch-0.8 playbin
RUNNING pipeline ...
Waiting for the state change...
(at this point the music plays)
Does this happen every time?
It should be possible to determine that the file is an MP3 even if you can't
understand the apetag. If I use 'dd' to nab the first 512KiB, it plays; this
indicates that yes gstreamer-0.10 is quite capable of identifying an MP3. It
should be made capable of discarding the junk at the end as well, like mpg321
