Bug Description

gnome-activity-journal 0.5.0.1-0ubuntu1

i installed, went to run it and I was getting playbin errors. After looking around i installed gstreamer0.10-plugins-base.

dpkg -S playbin
gstreamer0.10-plugins-base: /usr/lib/gstreamer-0.10/libgstplaybin.so

but its not a gaj dependency, shouldn't it be?

also is it not possible to use assigned mime to get thumbnails or whatever. i don't like gstreamer and use my own ffmpegthumbs solution. that would be pretty nice.

You want to say that when you hover the mouse over the video, the video doesn't run or GAJ doesn't start at all?

I will try adding this package as dependency when I package GAJ in my PPA. Will pass the link. Please try it out that time

Revision 1181 fixes that bug! Ortango please check it out and tell me if you get again this error...
If gstreamer is not installed gaj "fails" silently...

will this be rebuild in the ppa? because i dont have all the dev packages to pull this and test it

Stefano Candori (cando) wrote :

yeah Manish should package it and add gstreamer as a Recommended dependece...please keep tuned.

I will package it, set the bug status to Fix Released and post the PPA link. You can then come and install

Thanks for reporting the bug.

grabbed it - gstreamer0.10-plugins-base is in the recommends part of the control, shouldn't it be a depend?
gaj will not start (at least for me) without it installed.

Mmm..gstreamer it's not a dep because in case you don't have it, GAJ should
start anyway: you only can't see video previews....or at least this is the
behaviour we want.
Please past here the output you get on the terminal...

I guess rather then as I put it originally the bug has to do with python calling playbin even if it doesn't exist.

Ortango please check out the trunk version of GAJ...I should have finally fixed it.
Again, thanks very much for your help!

It seems playbin is now a plugin in gst. Stefano's recent changes should have resolved the issues in trunk. It should fail gracefully if the element does not exist but gst does. I still prefer gst and this plugin to be a considered recommended and not a dependency.
