Corebird 1.6 (media)

Post by amtrakuk » 2018/01/15 12:42:43

Hi there.

I'm using Centos 7 on two laptops, one of the applications I use Corebird. As part of its install I see it installs gstreamer as a dependency. however video posts work on one of the laptop but I get a gstreamer error on the other. I wasn't paying too much attention when I installed CentOS on the working laptop

I have even tried reinstalling the OS many times to get it working. I've opened a terminal on the working laptop and scrolled up the history.

After a fresh install I let any updates install and reboot.
I run through Tips and tricks after OS installation and updates https://wiki.centos.org/TipsAndTricks/M ... aOnCentOS7
Then install corebird

Code: Select all

sudo yum -y localinstall [filename].RPM
But alas it still wont play video posts.

After digging around over the weekend I found someone saying the gstreamer-plugins-bad don't have the exact codecs needed. Either way corebird is working flawlessly on the other laptop, it has to be something I am not doing correctly or in the right order.

Any help or fixes would be appreciated.

Thanks

The problem seems to be highlighted in https://github.com/baedert/corebird/issues/744

Am I able to use the gstreamer-plugins RPM from https://pkgs.org/download/gstreamer-plugins-libav-64bit even though it is designed for OpenSUSE?

*Bump*

If it works ok on the other machine then check the packages you have installed on there to make sure a) they are the same package names and b) the same versions. If you think it's gstreamer related then start with rpm -qa gstreamer\* | sort on both and compare those.
