Bug Description

When playing mkv video containing two sound tracks and trying to change file position or sound track sound disappears or appears randomly. For example after changing track it`s needed to change position some times in order to return sound. Vlc manages such files easily, including track and/or position jumps. This bug appears in a lot of files. I don`t know exectly what more info to produce, ask me at <email address hidden> if needed.

File plays normally, but did`t find any controls to change position or track.

output was:

gst-launch-0.10 playbin2 uri=file:///home/grayd/Temp/test.mkv

The mkv seeking problem should be fixed in GStreamer Good Plug-ins 0.10.24. From the release notes:

# 620358 : [matroskademux] Sorenson Squish WebM output seeking issues
# 620743 : matroskademux: refactor delta unit handling
# 619485 : matroskademux: skip buffers before a late keyframe (QoS)

Those are GNOME bug numbers. The corresponding bug reports are at:

Please test with the Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat" alpha 3 Live CD. After booting, and before testing, please use Synaptic Package Manager to upgrade Totem and the gstreamer packages, in particular the update of gstreamer0.10-plugins-good to 0.10.24.3-1ubuntu1

There is another mkv seeking fix in GStreamer Good Plug-ins 0.10.25. From the release notes:

Features of this release:

# seeking in matroska and webm files that don't have an index
# matroskademux: support seeking in local files even if they don't have an index
# 617368 : [matroska] Implement push-mode seeking and non-cue seeking

That last one has a GNOME bug number - the corresponding bug report is at:

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=617368

They don't seem to have included the bug reference (if there was one) for the local file case.

Please test with the Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat" beta CD. After booting, and before testing, please use Synaptic Package Manager to upgrade Totem and the gstreamer packages, in particular the update of gstreamer0.10-plugins-good to 0.10.25-4ubuntu1

We'd like to figure out what's causing this bug for you, but we haven't heard back from you in a while. Could you test in the latest release of Ubuntu Natty Narwhal and check if is still affecting you? Thank you
