Bug Description

I'm using Brasero 0.8.2 on Intrepid. Now brasero seems to have video DVD support, but if I try to burn a video file, in the burn dialogue the burn button is greyed out without a clue of how to fix the problem. That's very disorienting.

SRU JUSTIFICATION:

With brasero being the default burning application in Jaunty, many users will want to burn Video-CDs/DVDs. The problem is that gst-plugins-bad miss some ffmpeg-encoders due to not being built with mjpegtools support. From the buildlog:

configure: *** Plug-ins with dependencies that will NOT be built:
 mpeg2enc
 mplex

This results in brasero not being able to burn Video.

The issue can be fixed by adding libmjpegtools-dev (>= 1.9.0) to the build-depends.

SRU TEST CASE:

Make sure you got all the necessary plugins installed:

gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad, gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse, libavcodec-unstripped-52 and vcdimager

Open brasero with "brasero -g > log.txt 2>&1"

Check in log.txt that the libbrasero-vob.so plugin fails to load.

Now install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse from ppa (https://edge.launchpad.net/~amoog/+archive/ppa/)

Reopen brasero again, you'll now notice that libbrasero-vob.so plugin will load. Consequently, Video burning now works as expected.

NOTE: due to bug 351017 you will encounter a SIGILL if you convert video to mpeg2 and are running a non-pentium4 architecture. A fix for that has already been accepted in jaunty-proposed.

SRU REGRESSION POTENTIAL:

Low to non-existent since there is no code change and only 2 plugins more are built and installed.

I'm getting the same here, it could be due to the missing programs as: (brasero:7577): BraseroBurn-DEBUG: At burn-plugin.c:994: Module encountered an error while registering its capabilities:

there's a few errors like those in my machine also, I'll install those and report back, thanks.

Installing vcdimager doesn't seem to solve the problem.

Here's what I get when I launch Brasero from the terminal:

I can confirm that this problem still exists in Brasero 0.8.4. There is a message displayed now though indicating that the DVD cannot be burned with the enabled plugins. However, I have every recommended package installed. I am not sure what is missing and the debug log is no help either.

Magnus S (magnuss) wrote :

Yeah, i got this one too. It is impossible to burn a video or audio project, but it seems that i can burn data and iso files. I have tried this with two dvd-recorders and the media is dvd+rw and dvd-r.
A complete removal -> re-installation of brasero did not fix this issue.

I thought I was going to be happy with Ubuntu in place of Windows XP. It seems like we can't escape the buggy programs after all. Maybe I should call Terminex to straighten out Brasero.

I confirm the bug. I update brasero to 0.9.1 from getdeb, but it doesn't solve the problem.

BUT with a .vob file the button is not grayed.
So, I thik the problem is about brasero-gstreamer interaction.

I installed all gstreamer plugin, and alla library related to ffmpeg and dvd (like libdvd)... this dosen't solve the problem.

Thanks good buddy for the info. If I get it solved before you do, I will let you know.

comment on the upstream tracker:

"the problem is the libbrasero-vob.so plugin that doesn't
want to be loaded. It's because you don't have either:
-ffenc_mpeg2video
-ffenc_ac3
-ffenc_mp2
-mplex

"
could you also try to install those and see if it's still an issue?

gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad is missing the mplex plugin (libgstmplex.so) which is needed by Brasero to create a valid video cd/dvd structure.

The attached debdiff adds a required build dependency to gst-plugins-bad0.10 in order to resolve this problem.

Please note that the packages gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse and libavcodec-unstripped-52 are also needed by Brasero. Maybe they should be added as a suggestion to the brasero package.

I hope this will help.

libavcodec-unstripped-52 is not provided in the standard Ubuntu 8.10 repositories. There is libavcodec-unstripped-51, but that doesn't seem to help.

Also, while following the "BuildFromDebdiff" tutorial from above, I stumble upon the following error at the stage where I type "sudo apt-get build-dep gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad":

E: La dépendance Build-Depends vis-à-vis de gst-plugins-bad0.10 ne peut être satisfaite car aucune version du paquet libcelt-dev ne peut satisfaire à la version requise

As it seems this bug isn't a problem of Brasero but rather a problem of gstreamer-plugins-bad.

As already mentioned in this report, this is the comment from an upstream Brasero developer.
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=564169#c6

This are the requirements to make the Video Project work.

-ffenc_mpeg2video
-ffenc_ac3
-ffenc_mp2
-mplex

It would be great if the this bug could be resolved before the final release of Jaunty.

Can someone post built packages containing that debdiff? I don't understand why this is still around in Jaunty. As mentioned on the upstream bug report, Jaunty contains the proper version of mjpegtools; all that has to happen is for the gstreamer-plugins-bad package to be rebuilt to include it.

The package in your PPA fixed the problem for me! Any chance of getting this into backports at least? It's a rather annoying bug that seems to affect a lot of people (google for it).

Thanks! Would be glad to do any additional testing if you need it.

Andreas, your ppa package solves my problem, possible upload default
with Jaunty and backport with Intrepid?

Thanks your package!

It would be really nice to have this fix in the Jaunty 9.04 CDs - otherwise users who install this version of Ubuntu won't be able to burn Video DVDs, which would be a shame given that a fix already exists.

Andreas, Yesterday I installed your gst0.10-plugins-bad package with
your ppa repository my notebook (multiverse version).
Unfortunately, the video project writing now does'nt work my notebook.
In monday, this problem not see my desktop machine, but monday other
gst-plugins-bad package have your repository if I remember correct.
Have anybody confirm this problem, or my system not work correct?

Do you have any idea what should be done?

Andreas, I am running 9.04 with default installation and still encounter the

problem, even after installing your version of -bad-multiverse0.10 from ppa.

output from 'ffmpeg -formats' and 'gst-inspect0.10' is as you describe above.

Is there something else I can check or attach to try to uncover what is going on?

I take it back: after rm'ing $HOME/.gstreamer0.10/*.bin and rerunning gst-inspect, it seems I can do video now (well, almost, now I'm running into "**ERROR: [brasero] Too many frame drops -exiting", but that's an entirely different issue).

Thanks!

David,

Did you mahually installed the -multiverse package from karmic?

Onkar, it turns out I hadn't installed vcdimager, that's why brasero couldn't burn (or create) the image.

Anyway, shouldn't brasero prompt you to install missing packages? I would never have guessed that I had to install that particular package, were it not for this report.

Sorry, forget about that, I didnt have libavcodec-unstripped-52 installed. We really need to fix the dependencies or at least the recommends for brasero, or create a brasero-video-illegal package or something to simplify this.

Rather than the fairly unhelpful 'it is not possible to write with the current set of plugins', might the message be patched to suggest the user installs 'dvdauthor' to enable DVD-video burning?

Hence, no hours of programming skill required - just a one-line text change.

This is an ACK from MOTU-SRU for Jaunty for adding the build-dep. However, please correctly version the package version for a SRU.

The upgrade to karmic solved this problem for me, even though i had gtreamer plugins and dvdauthor in jaunty, it still would not work. Working in karmic is good enough for me (although i would of liked to find the source of the problem)

Can we close this bug, since karmic fixed it (installing dvdauthor and gstreamer plugins), or do we need to keep it open because it still effects jaunty?

John Dong (jdong) wrote :

Jaunty tasks are open for SRU, other tasks are closed already.

Accepted gst-plugins-bad-multiverse0.10 into jaunty-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

Anyone who can test the proposed package? If not, the proposed update will be removed again. Thanks!

@ Martin Pitt

i would love to ( got re-writeble dvd anyway ), but i do not know how to test it. please explain. ( i use LinuxMint, but that shouldt make a difference, does it? )

Martin Pitt (pitti) wrote :

Koen, no need for a DVD, just install the package from jaunty-proposed as described on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed . Thanks!

sry, ik kinda already dit an OShop to kubuntu, wich doen not have brasero. i am still going to test it in a virtualmachine, wait for my feedback.

Koen (gorgabal) wrote :

alright.. i enabled jaunty-proposed in a virtualmachine. typit in a terminal:

sudo aptitude install gst-plugins-bad-multiverse0.10

but it says there is no package with that name. i am really new at testing so could you please help me out?

Onkar Shinde (onkarshinde) wrote :

Koen,

The correct package name is gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse.

Same issue in Lucid Lynx.

This update has been in jaunty-proposed for half a year or longer, without any testing feedback. I removed the jaunty-proposed package again.

Ok, sorry to resurrect such an old bug, but I'm still seeing this issue in Brasero, as of today (9-13-14) on an install of Ubuntu 14.04. Is there anything I can do to help track this down? This has been frustrating me for the past 4 hours as to why I can't burn a video file onto a DVD so my parents can watch it on their TV...

I've tried every suggestion in this thread, and there was no change in the behavior of the program, though everything that was suggested to install was already in the system. I tried deinstallign and reinstalling jsut to be sure, but no dice.

yes.. use a program called K3B it is far superior in my mind.. when you open in the middle bottom it will have a selection of actions.. under more actions is the video DVD project that should wet you up fine :)

Title:
  [SRU] gst-plugins-bad0.10 needs rebuilding with mjpegtools to enable
  burning video with Brasero

Status in A disc burning application for gnome 2:
  Invalid
Status in “brasero” package in Ubuntu:
  Invalid
Status in “gst-plugins-bad-multiverse0.10” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in “brasero” source package in Jaunty:
  Invalid
Status in “gst-plugins-bad-multiverse0.10” source package in Jaunty:
  Won't Fix

Bug description:
  I'm using Brasero 0.8.2 on Intrepid. Now brasero seems to have video
  DVD support, but if I try to burn a video file, in the burn dialogue
  the burn button is greyed out without a clue of how to fix the
  problem. That's very disorienting.

  SRU JUSTIFICATION:

  With brasero being the default burning application in Jaunty, many
  users will want to burn Video-CDs/DVDs. The problem is that gst-
  plugins-bad miss some ffmpeg-encoders due to not being built with
  mjpegtools support. From the buildlog:

  configure: *** Plug-ins with dependencies that will NOT be built:
      mpeg2enc
      mplex

  This results in brasero not being able to burn Video.

  The issue can be fixed by adding libmjpegtools-dev (>= 1.9.0) to the
  build-depends.

  SRU TEST CASE:

  Make sure you got all the necessary plugins installed:

  gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad, gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg, gstreamer0.10
  -plugins-bad-multiverse, libavcodec-unstripped-52 and vcdimager

  Open brasero with "brasero -g > log.txt 2>&1"

  Check in log.txt that the libbrasero-vob.so plugin fails to load.

  Now install gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse from ppa
  (https://edge.launchpad.net/~amoog/+archive/ppa/)

  Reopen brasero again, you'll now notice that libbrasero-vob.so plugin
  will load. Consequently, Video burning now works as expected.

  NOTE: due to bug 351017 you will encounter a SIGILL if you convert
  video to mpeg2 and are running a non-pentium4 architecture. A fix for
  that has already been accepted in jaunty-proposed.

  SRU REGRESSION POTENTIAL:

  Low to non-existent since there is no code change and only 2 plugins
  more are built and installed.
