I have temporarily switched my apt-sources to testing
I have upgraded gstreamer.*plugins.* to the version of Wheezy
Surprisingly Totem is of the same version as in Lenny
Same result, video is out of sync, many video frames are dropped, audio
is not audible or very bad.
Rolled gstreamer.*plugins.* back to Squeeze
I have just built my custom Totem from sources, compiled against stable
Debian/Squeeze libgstreamer.*-dev libs
I left out some pluggins, UI is a bit faster.
Same result, video is out of sync, many video frames are dropped, audio is not audible or very bad.
I have filed a bug at GNOME Bugzilla
Bug 654383 - No playback of DVDs in Totem Debian / Squeeze
Shall I file it at Debian as well?
If so how do I file it, never done that before.
Many thanks so far.
