textoverlay fails to render very long text with halignment=absolute and wrap-mode=none
Submitted by David
I'm trying to scroll some text horizontally like in the news. This text must not wrap.
So I tried something like this:
gst-launch-1.0 videotestsrc ! video/x-raw,width=300,height=300 ! textoverlay text="aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" wrap-mode=none halignment=absolute x-absolute=0.5 ! autovideosink
which fails with
(gst-launch-1.0:27547): Pango-WARNING **: pango-layout.c:3209: broken PangoLayout
by "fails" I mean that the text does not render at all.
If I remove "halignment=absolute" or "wrap-mode=none" this works.
Tested by me on debian with gst 1.10.4-1 and by thiagoss on master with the same result.
I'd gladly accept a workaround, if you have any, for now.
