Summary: Problem with ges-launch and W32 filenames
AssignedTo: gstreamer-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
ReportedBy: lrn1986 at gmail.com
QAContact: gstreamer-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
GNOME version: ---
ges-launch does the following for its filename arguments:
1) calls check_path(), which does fopen()
2) if that succeeds, it ensures that path is an URI, by calling ensure_uri()
1) fopen() doesn't understand URIs on W32. Thus the path MUST NOT be an uri, it
must be a DOS-style path (either X:/foo/bar or X:\foo\bar).
2) however, gst_uri_is_valid() (which is what ensure_uri() initially calls)
thinks that a DOS style path is a valid URI (X is the uri type, followed by :,
followed by a path - looks perfectly valid), and ensure_uri() does not change
the path into an URI, which is why GStreamer later fails to use it.
I'm still looking for a correct way of fixing this, without #ifdef G_OS_WIN32
