GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in



  • I hope that someone can help with this problem, been searching for a solution for the past 2 days.

    To describe the problem in short: I'm trying to make a simple qt5.7 application that will stream an m3u8 (using Qt Creator (community). But when I try to run it I get a

    Warning: "No decoder available for type 'application/x-hls'."
    Error: "Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in."
    

    "gst-inspect | grep hls"
    returns: typefindfunctions: application/x-hls: m3u8

    At this point I have no idea which plugin can I even miss as I have gone trough the complete GStreamer plugin list and put one after another.
    As far as my search went some got the fix by installing the bad/ugly plugins. Some say that the QT5 still uses gstreamer0.10, but new linux versions use the 1.0 (lost at this point). I tried to set a flag to force the GST_VERSION=1.0, did not work, or I did something wrong (I used the qmake GST_VERSION=1.0 command). Also, I am able to play the video in vlc.
    I am completely stuck, and don't know what to do anymore.

    the app code:

    import QtQuick 2.7
    import QtQuick.Window 2.2
    import QtMultimedia 5.7
    
    Window {
        visible: true
        width: 640
        height: 480
        title: qsTr("Hello World")
    
        Item {
            width: 640
            height: 480
    
            MediaPlayer {
                id: player
                source: "http://playertest.longtailvideo.com/adaptive/wowzaid3/chunklist_w249832652.m3u8"
            }
    
            VideoOutput {
                anchors.fill: parent
                source: player
            }
    
            Component.onCompleted: {
                player.play();
            }
        }
    }

  • You need the "hlsdemux" plugin that is in "gst-plugins-bad".



  • gst-inspect-1.0 | grep hlsdemux returns: hls: hlsdemux: HLS Demuxer



  • @oniongarlic said in GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in:

    You need the "hlsdemux" plugin that is in "gst-plugins-bad".

    As far as I know qtmultimedia still uses gstreamer0.10 and I don't know how to get "gst-plugins-bad" for that version.



  • @lukam should be in the package "gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad" or has it been removed from Mint 18 ?



  • @oniongarlic Looks like it has been removed from Mint 18 and Ubunutu 16.04 also.

  • Got it fixed by installing gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad from old repositories.



  • @lukam I seem to have a similar problem. What repositories did you use?

    Edit: Okay, I seem to have resolved my issue with some other plugins, unfortunately I am not sure which one...



  • @hekimgil

    I downloaded it from ubuntu trusty (14.04LTS). Probably v5.8 and gstreamer1.0 should fix this issue.
