For vexpress board, on hardware pack:

with ubuntu rootfs:

When run this test:

The video can be played "just OK" in the default size screen of movie player, but if switch to the full screen, then it will become the slide show.

The low performance is due bug 1018664, so marking it as duplicate.

Bug 1018664 focus on the 1080p HD video, and if no hardware acceleration, then it's impossible to play. But this bug is about 480p video, which should be handled by software decode.

However, if the full screen mode is not in the support feature list, then I will modify the test case description to add this additional limitation.

Now Totem Movie Player even can't play the 480p video, observed on hardware pack:

http://snapshots.linaro.org/precise/hwpacks/vexpress/197/hwpack_linaro-vexpress_20120729-197_armhf_supported.tar.gz

with ubuntu rootfs image:

http://snapshots.linaro.org/precise/images/ubuntu-desktop/321/linaro-precise-ubuntu-desktop-20120729-321.tar.gz

I got a pop up window and it shows:

An error occurred
GStreamer encountered a general stream error.

Linaro has switched from GUI based ubuntu image to solid command line console, then this "480p Video Playback" test is not applicable any more. The status of this bug on "linaro-ubuntu" should be changed to "Won't Fix".
