Just updated to CVS and reinstalled. Aside from the different error
messages for ! oggdemux ! vorbisdec ! osssink (which is a bad pathway
anyway, and those changes have already been disputed), I see no change.
filesrc location=filename.ogg ! spider ! osssink
is still static. Looks like it's still not calling audioconvert.
filesrc location=filename.ogg ! spider ! volume ! osssink
is also still static, and also static with any other sink as well.
! oggdemux ! vorbisdec ! audioconvert ! volume ! osssink
is also still static, same with other sinks.
! oggdemux ! vorbisdec ! audioconvert ! alsasink
gives incredibly odd distortion, whereas it worked fine before.
! oggdemux ! vorbisdec ! volume ! alsasink
just refuses to run with new messages about a state change bug.
Another weird thing I just noticed that occurs with HEAD but not
All the behavior above is if I run gst-register as root, but not as
user. (With no ~/.gstreamer-0.7/registry.xml file)
If I run gst-register as a user, it builds the user registry (and
reports twice as many plugins as when I run it as root, 220 instead
of 110). After doing so, the other plugins seem to work, but spider
doesn't. For example,
gst-launch-0.7 filesrc location=filename.ogg ! spider ! audioconvert ! osssink
now gives the following error:
** (process:17233): CRITICAL **: how to remove plugins?
(process:17233): GStreamer-CRITICAL **: Factory for `oggdemux' has no type
Explictly stating the plugin works as before. Deleting
~/.gstreamer-0.7/registry.xml makes spider go back to working.
This only happens in HEAD, not 0.7.5, as I just went back and tested.
