    Re: Quicktime Videos Distorting

    Thanks for filing...well, i was the only one to put a bug report on for the touchpad not locking in setting changes in system settings...so i guess we both did our reports solo

    Re: Quicktime Videos Distorting

    The problem has been idenified as from multi-thread decoding in the libav plugin.
    What & when for a fix is not known yet.

    If having a local quicktime to test this now produces good playback, adjusting red to suit
    Code:
    gst-launch-1.0 filesrc location=/home/doug/ironman3-tlr1-m4mb0_h720p.mov ! qtdemux ! avdec_h264 max-threads=1 ! xvimagesink

    This has been fixed upstream for gst-libav-1.0.6
    When it shows up in ubuntu no idea - launchpad bug on issue (unconfirmed

    Maybe Ubuntu will, there is still some time there & it's a simple bug fix update.
    Though it's somewhat unfortunate that they didn't upgrade to libav9 (released on Jan 5), & consider using gstreamer 1.1
    That would have allowed multi-thread decoding to be enabled without issue & resolved a bug or 2 & maybe added some other stuff like wmal decoding, ect.

    At this point don't know if libav will go to 9, probably not.., multimedia doesn't get much priority it seems.

    Some other open bugs -
    totem broken on glib - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...m/+bug/1100937
    no ffaudio in audacious - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...s/+bug/1080059
    grilo in an MIR quagmire - https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...m/+bug/1035701
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...o/+bug/1116098
    (there are several others, losing interest..

    Re: Quicktime Videos Distorting

    Fixed in standard ubuntu install (gst-libav-1.0) with latest - gst-libav1.0 (1.0.5-1ubuntu1
    (users of the ppa gst-libav-1.1 would have not been affected as it uses libav9 included in source
    totem/glib issue also fixed, ffaudio in audacious remains open but easily fixed

    Re: Quicktime Videos Distorting

    Yes, you are right, it is fixed
    That change didn't come into my morning updates, but after reading your post, i just ran the updater again, and saw that change you mentioned...once installed, went to itunes movie trailers, and they are playing perfect again...

    By the way, i had forgotten you had filed a bug report for this and had recently filed one also...i guess they must have finally gotten to it...
    I always prefer watching my movie trailers there (rather then yahoo movies trailers) so very glad to see it working again...

    Now, if they will just get my reported bug about the touchpad pointer speed setting not locking in when you change it, i will be "good to go" (lol)...
    If that gets fixed by final release, on my computer 13.04 will be bug free (was not the case for me on 12.10)...

    well sometimes one needs to get a little proactive to get things fixed..

    As far as the bug you filed - whenever possible it's better to file against the source the bug is in.
