[gst-devel] strange problem on Nokia 770

Hi Stefan,
Thanks for the pointer.

I tried using this 
/etc/osso-af-init/osso-media-server [stop|start].
But that didn't help in getting back the video.

I found out that the following command can be run to get video back. But only
problem is that it needs to be run in sudo mode.
/usr/sbin/dsp_dld -m /lib/dsp/modules/mpeg4.cmd

Now, I can't expect every user of N770 to have sudo access. So, I'm still
stuck with the problem.
Is there any work around possible?

/etc/osso-af-init/media-engine stop

this is from the top of my head, so look around, if the filename is not 100%
