GStreamer-WARNING **: wrong STREAM_LOCK count 0 after changing HTML5 video.src

Bug Description

I'm using WebKitGtk (with PyGI and Python3, although my hunch is that's irrelevant) for a video browser.

Playback using the <video> element works awesome, but when I switch from one video to the next by changing the video.src from the DOM with JavaScript, I get this error in the terminal:

GStreamer-WARNING **: wrong STREAM_LOCK count 0

Once this happens, the app freezes up. The next video doesn't play, and I can't do anything... not even close the app. After the timeout, I can force quite.

Haven't yet spotted a pattern to this. It doesn't happen every time... sometimes I can play, say 5 videos or so before this happens.

Noticed this in exaile. If I fast forward in a track for a few times player freezes, and on a debug I get: GStreamer-WARNING **: wrong STREAM_LOCK count 0

To add to the above comment, I don't believe this is a bug in WebKit, but GStreamer. I've filed #941229, please add your thoughts there if you think it affects you.

Yeah, this is starting to look like a GStreamer bug. Unless both WebKit and Exaile are doing something similar (and perhaps wrong) that's triggering this.

does "Fix Released" mean, that you need to build gstreamer from source to get the fix, or would upgrading to ubuntu 13.04 give me an updated binary package of it that contains the fix already?

I upgraded ubuntu to 13.10 and still the problem exists. So @kaefert upgrading doesn't help. Any other fix you could find?

@Pavan I've found a solution for all my video editing that is better than everything else I've seen before (combined!) --> Avisynth (running though wine)
