parole fails to play iptv streams with teletext


Description Tim Tassonis 2019-08-22 02:21:18 CEST
I have successfully built parole 1.0.4 with gstreamer-1.16.0  and it runs fine.

However, it refuses to play iptv streams containing teletext, while gst-play-1.0 plays them fine,

For example:


will only warn about the missing teletext decoder:

WARNING No decoder available for type 'application/x-teletext'.
WARNING debug information: ../gst/playback/gsturidecodebin.c(921): unknown_type_cb (): /GstPlayBin:playbin/GstURIDecodeBin:uridecodebin0

but still play the stream, while parole wil display a popup telling about the missing decoder and then refuse to play the stream.

I would  be great if parole could also play the stream if the teletext decoder is not available, as other players like gst-play-1.0  or mpv
