Audio decoders missing/not working with meson-built gstreamer 1.18.5 components
Running the tutorial code (e.g. tutorial 1) against the gstreamer 1.18.5 libraries in devenv produces video but no sound. Audio decoders are either missing or not working. I'm running Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and I've tried the same code with the native-installed Gstreamer 1.16 version and both audio/video work with the native libraries.
Only strange thing I saw in meson build output was the base-plugins built with warnings regarding meson versions but I have the latest 0.59 version so I disregarded.
Has anyone else seen this before? Any suggestions?
