Banshee imports WebM videos into music library, not video library

Bug Description

Binary package hint: banshee

Observed behaviour:

Banshee 1.8.0 (running on Ubuntu 10.0 Maverick Merkat) erroneously treats video files in Google's WebM format as audio files. When Banshee imports a '.webm' file, it is put into the music library instead of the video library. Consequently, when Banshee plays such a file, only the Vorbis audio track is played, while the VP8 video track is ignored.

Expected behaviour:

When Banshee imports a '.webm' file with a VP8 video track, the file is put into the video library. When such a file is played, both the Vorbis audio track and the VP8 video track are played.

Thanks for the quick response! Any chance that the bugfix will trickle downstream via the normal 10.10 update process? The newest version (1.8.0-2ubuntu1~maverick1 from the maverick-updates repository, available this morning) still exhibits this bug.

The fix was committed to the "stable-1.8" branch, so it will be included in the upcoming 1.8.1 release (no date set for that yet).
So I guess it will then make its way to MAverick as an update.

I can confirm that WebM files are correctly handled in Banshee 1.8.1 from maverick-proposed.
The update has fixed this bug for me.

Thanks a lot!
