           Summary: ac3parse: RealAudio file with AC-3 audio no longer
    Classification: Platform
           Product: GStreamer
           Version: git
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: gst-plugins-good
        AssignedTo: gstreamer-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
        ReportedBy: t.i.m at zen.co.uk
         QAContact: gstreamer-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org
     GNOME version: ---

The file below no longer plays, because ac3parse doesn't accept the bsid of 10.

According to http://matroska.org/technical/specs/codecid/index.html BSID 9/10
are basically like normal AC-3 but for lower samplerates.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #599676 +++

Description of the problem:
Back in Ubuntu 8.04 gstreamer was able to play a particular RealAudio file but
with 9.10 this file seems to just hang.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Run
wget http://wso.williams.edu/~aeatonsa/bomb/audio/real/Track13.ra
gst-launch-0.10 filesrc location=Track14.ra ! decodebin ! audioconvert !
audioresample ! pulsesink

Expected results:
Remixed version of the classic Bomberman battle music scale to be played.

Actual results:
The following is printed:
Pipeline is PREROLLING ...
Pipeline is PREROLLED ...
Setting pipeline to PLAYING ...
New clock: GstPulseSinkClock

but no music is produced.

How reproducible is the problem?
It is reproducible every time.

Additional information:
The file plays in the gstreamer bundled with Ubuntu 8.04.
