* ext/libav/gstavvidenc.c:
avvidenc: Make sure to fixate caps before setting them on the pad
After the recent addition of negotiation support for MPEG4 part 2
profiles via caps it can happen that the generated caps at this
point still contain multiple profiles. For example if downstream
does not care. Just fixate anything here and use those caps.

avcodecmap: place supported profiles in mpeg4 caps
Place the supported profiles in the srcpad caps of the mpeg4 encoder.

* ext/libav/gstavcodecmap.c:
avcodecmap: remove deprecated media types
Remove x-xvid and x-3ivx. The last place where they were used are
in the srcpad caps of the decoder but since the decoder will never
actually output those caps we can safely remove them.

* ext/libav/gstavcodecmap.c:
codecmap: don't expose more deprecated media types
x-xvid is deprecated, we don't want to expose it on the encoder, just
leave it only exposed on the decoder.

Revert "avcodecmap: do more reverse mapping of MPEG4"
This reverts commit e066785ad05f9119e3c1eded46260bcabd556b4d.
x-xvid and x-3ivx are removed, we don't want to expose them again.

avaudenc: add a comment about using -1 in _finish_frame

* ext/libav/gstavaudenc.c:
avaudenc: avoid using wrong number of samples
If audio_in is NULL, we'll send a NULL frame to libav, to flush
the codec. In that case, we won't know how many samples the codec
will have used, so we use -1 (for don't know) when letting the
base class know about the buffer.

avvidenc: Fix indention and "bracketing" of goto labels
Should fix CID 1219865, which looks like the code analysis
algorithm was just confused.
2014-05-29 18:24:20 +0200 Wim Taymans <>
* ext/libav/gstavcodecmap.c:
avcodecmap: handle simple and advanced-simple profile in MPEG4
Always enable 4MV flag for MPEG4
Pare the profile property and enable more features for advanced-simple
video/x-xvid is advanced-simple profile so enable more features.
We now also support encoding of video/x-xvid so add this to the caps.
2014-05-29 18:16:42 +0200 Wim Taymans <>
* ext/libav/gstavvidenc.c:
avvidenc: do all negotiation before opening the decoder
We first want to complete negotiation before opening the encoder.
Negotiation might configure flags and other things that might be needed
when opening the encoder.
2014-05-29 17:00:23 +0200 Wim Taymans <>
* ext/libav/gstavcodecmap.c:
avcodecmap: do more reverse mapping of MPEG4
We previously mapped some caps to MPEG4 and codec_tag so we can use the
codec_tag again to map to the original caps.

avdemux: use GstFlowCombiner
To remove replicated code from all demuxers to a single standard way
of aggregating flow returns
2014-05-26 16:02:11 -0300 Thiago Santos <>
* ext/libav/gstavdemux.c:
avdemux: remove legacy check from pad-alloc times
The 'no_buffer' error case is from the 0.10 era when a pad_alloc was
made before decoding the data and avdemuxer could check again the
flow returns for a not-linked. This isn't a valid use case anymore in

This is hopefully the last 1.3 development release and will be followed by

is followed by 1.4.0 soonish in early July.
Binaries for Android, iOS, Mac OS X and Windows will be provided separately
