webm files are not played


Description Pascal Wittmann 2013-01-22 22:13:11 CET

I'm here on Archlinux and try to play webm files with parole. This does not work. Parole just does nothing and no error message is printed. Even with a high Debug level I cannot see whats the matter.

Due to this [1] post I tried to execute this command before building parole:

   echo "video/webm" >> data/mime/mime-type-list.txt

Builed with that mime-type included (and with the good and bad gstreamer plugins installed) every thing works as aspected, i.e. parole play the webm file.

I'm not really sure if this is a bug, since I do not know if parole claims to support webm. So if this is no bug, regard it as a feature request.

Best regards,

I've heard about the inability to play webm files from a different user but cannot confirm it here.

I tested with files from www.webmfiles.org

I've just patched parole to have full support for webm, please try it again from git master.
