           Summary: qtmux "buffer without timestamp/duration" error
                    message could be more helpful
    Classification: Platform
           Product: GStreamer
           Version: 0.10.21
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: gst-plugins-bad
        AssignedTo: gstreamer-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: gnome at tibit.com

When qtmux fails due to out-of-chronological-order buffers without duration
(bug 638288) it produces this error message:

  Could not multiplex stream.

If the application happens to show debug info, this additional message is

  Received buffer without timestamp/duration.

It would be a bit more helpful if the latter message was included in the
former.  Better yet, how about mentioning the new dts-method=reorder property,
which can work around the problem, in the error message?  It might save
developers some time and trouble.
