    Re: Gstreamer missing from 14.04

    In that case any concerned user should file a bug on why no trusty build
    It's already been done: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...g/+bug/1275556

    Also, here's why it was removed: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...p/+bug/1253071

    Re: Gstreamer missing from 14.04

    "I had asked the Op to check that, I guess he didn't..."

    I neglected this issue once I solved it, didn't mean to:

    Saucy ffmpeg package does indeed work with 14.04.

    Furthermore FF30 has the gstreamer flag enabled by default ... so h.264 based html5 videos play and play well (canonical should look into making ffmpeg 0.10 or 1.0 available in trusty repos)


    libav is useless.


    Now, and this should give you all pause to think, I am able to enjoy HD html5 videos in numerous sites, from vimeo to rt, but in youtube...

    in youtube they keep playing most videos in 360p

    some, very few, let you change to 720, the great majority keep their 360p resolution


    What does this browser support?


    • HTMLVideoElement



    • H.264



    • WebM VP8





    turns out google came up with a thing called

    Media Source Extensions




    fairly recently, I believe, a couple of months ago I was able to watch all html5 videos in whatever resolution I desired.

    I would say this feels like a shady tactic by google to push their chrome browser

    Again, it is not the fact that libav or gstreamer1.0-libav is "useless." Programs that use gstreamer1.0 and use gstreamer1.0-libav can play the video formats you're referring to.

    The problem is that firefox has been very slow to move to gstreamer1.0, and it may or may not have been enabled in the build you're using (link to the FF ppa you're using if you want us to look at build log).

    Re: FF30 with gst1.x support

    Todays nightly FF30 build seems to be good to go with gstreamer1.0-libav
    Edit: - actually it ^ doesn't..

    Is there anything else that needs the 0.10 ffmpeg plugin??

    Re: Gstreamer missing from 14.04

    Doug, as you may know, I run Debian sid(uction). I also use debmultimedia repo, which substitutes ffmpeg for libav, and it offers gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg package.

    Here's a quick list of packages dependent on it:
    Depends: toonloop, foobnix, landell, miro, betaradio, flumotion
    Recommends: snappy, morituri, pidgin-sipe, exaile, gnash-common, gnome-subtitles, kde-telepathy-call-ui
    Suggests: subtitleeditor, pitivi, soundconverter, guayadeque

    Took a quick look there, what they're doing with gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg is the same I did here - build off of the included source, not the system libs.
    (most likely the included libav as the inc. ffmpeg is incomplete

    Re: Gstreamer missing from 14.04

    libav with firefox 28.0~b2+build1-0ubuntu2, that is now shipping with trusty, does not work.

    libav with ffox30 from nightly.mozilla.org does not work.

    ffmpeg0.10 works with both, would like to try ffmpeg 1.0

    hence why I called it useless

    I rechecked & FF 30 from daily ppa does not use gst-1.x (forgot to log out after removing 0.10 plugin

    So until such time as it does just use the 0.10 plugin
    There is no "ffmpeg 1.0" plugin & the 0.10 plugin uses libav so not "useless"
