    Totem reads wrong size with H.264 codec

    Hi!

    I am using ubuntu 12.04 and hav all the codecs installed and running properly.

    I have som videos with codec H.264 and size 720X480. When I play them under Totem, the size register is 720X720 and That is the size of the visor, thus the lower part of the visor is filled with a green zone.

    This dosn't happen under VLC, eventhoght the size registered is 720x720 but the size of the visor is the appropiate (720x480)

    Videos with other video codec are played right.

    Any Idea ??

    Thanks and God bless you!!

    From terminal:

    Code:
    mediainfo --Inform="Video;Width= %Width% Height= %Height%\rAspect= %DisplayAspectRatio/String%"  thevideofile
    If you have to install mediainfo then:
    sudo apt-get install mediainfo

    (there is a GUI package)

    Here is therminal output
    :~/Escritorio$ mediainfo --Inform="Video;Width= %Width% Height= %Height%\rAspect= %DisplayAspectRatio/String%" Video1.mov
    Width= 720 Height= 480
    Aspect= 1.000

    Both VLC and Totem inform that video dimensions are 720X720

    VLC Info:
    Codec : H264 AVC(part10)
    Resolution: 720X720

    Totem Info:
    Codec:H264/AVC
    Dimension: 720X720

    A third program (Avidemux) detects 720X480. But the sound is very bad.

    Any Idea??

    Thanks

    Solved

    Hello again!!

    Thanks God I found a solution:
    http://www.webupd8.org/2012/06/fix-m...untu-1204.html

    It was a bug reported in this site:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...10/+bug/973014

    Here it is:

    renaming the "libgstvideoparsersbad.so" file:

    - 32bit:
    sudo mv /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideoparsersbad.so /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideoparsersbad.so.bak
    - 64bit:
    sudo mv /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideoparsersbad.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideoparsersbad.so.bak

    There aren't any visible side effects to using this work-around, but in case you find one, you can simply rename "libgstvideoparsersbad.so.bak" back to "libgstvideoparsersbad.so".

    Thanks and may God bless you!

    I provided a proper solution & David Henningsson was good enough to ppa it while a SRU for 12.04/12.10 is considered.
    This is the preferred way vs. the mv to bak
