gstges plugin causes gst-plugin-scanner to hang
When I was building
gst-plugins-bad-1.18.0 (which, AFAICT, will depend on bits in GES), it seems that introspection hangs when running
g-ir-scanner to build the .gir files for these packages.
After some investigation by narrowing down things, it seems that seems that the plugin scanner hung when trying to scan against the existing GStreamer installation where it tries to load the 1.18.0
gstges.dll plugin. I was able to work around this hang by disabling this plugin by temporarily renaming
gstges.dll.bak, for instance.
Sorry, I do not know GStreamer well enough to give any further info at this point, so please let me know what places I might be able to look for further insight.
I am building with Visual Studio, in both 32-bit and x64 flavors, against the latest stable GTK stack that is built by the same compiler, where this issues hits.
This issue also manifests when I try to run the QuodLibet music player, where the application does not start unless I rename or remove this plugin.
With blessings, thank you!
