    Support for FLV?

    I that with gst-ffmpeg FLV videos can be played. So copied the binaries but the playbin element and the media player do not recognize FLVs so I have to use the command line with a gst-launch.

    Any suggestion to add support for FLVs? Thanks.

    First thing is to get the playbin working and for that I don’t have any advices. After you get it working, you can edit some configuration files to add the support for the MP.

    Thanks for this great package. I have a question about ogg-support.xml, however. I noticed there was no glob element so I added one for application/ogg as in ” and rebuilt the mime database. Now I can click on an ogg file in File Manager and have it play in Media Player. I noticed for version 0.4 that you mentioned removing the *.ogg patterns. Is there something I am missing or is there some other problem I can expect to run into now?

    Something ate my example glob element in the previous comment. It was supposed to be ‘glob pattern=”*.ogg”‘ with some angle brackets thrown in. Sorry about that.

    All ogg related mime types had the glob pattern *.ogg stated in the xml file originally. I removed them because otherwise the FM just took the first one with *.ogg pattern and never bother to look closer (actually that’s probably done by some lower level mime lib as it affects the MP as well).

    This lead to the situation where all files with ogg extensions were application/ogg and the MP plays only files with audio/* or video/* mime type. And if I added the glob pattern only to audio/x-vorbis+ogg then all video files were also shown as vorbis.

    So, the current solution was a compromise to get the MP part working. The FM also recognizes the files although it claims it cannot open them (see bug #2521). All suggestions are welcome.
