    What does this return, may have to install gstreamer-tools
    Code:
    gst-inspect |grep videoparsersbad
    After installing the gstreamer bad 0.10.23 manually, the command you mentioned returns nothing.

    Also the command:
    Code:
    root@ioannis-VirtualBox:~# gst-inspect |grep -i videoparser
    returns nothing.

    That means while you've installed .23 it's not in a location that it will be used.
    This has the effect of 'fixing' your playback issues by not having the parser plugin available.
    Many of the bad plugins are a bit obscure, some are useful depending on use case.
    This is what is normally returned
    $gst-inspect |grep videoparsersbad
    videoparsersbad: h263parse: H.263 parser
    videoparsersbad: h264parse: H.264 parser
    videoparsersbad: diracparse: Dirac parser
    videoparsersbad: mpegvideoparse: MPEG video elementary stream parser
    videoparsersbad: mpeg4videoparse: MPEG 4 video elementary stream parser
    If you were to remove your build then you'd notice no difference.

    If interested in keeping an active bad plugin & fixing this I've a simple how-to here for 12.04
    (I've extended the patch for 12.10 to inc. all h264 commits in the .10 branch & enable opus support, haven't posted yet - may not

    i don't see Ubuntu fixing 12.04 or even 12.10. When Ubuntu moves to gstreamer1.0 then this won't be an issue as the 1.0 branch was fixed at the same time as the .10 one last May 15

    Why don't they go back to the gstreamer plugins used in Ubuntu 11.10?

    It is actually the same in 11.10,12.04,12.10, it works in 11.10 but not in 12.04/12.10
    For whatever reason Ubuntu hasn't seen fit to update/upgrade the bad plugin source in over 1 year.
    You'll notice in my bug report that not one peep from any Ubuntu dev, bug triage(r), no one.
