qtdemux cannot handle .mov file with multiple gif based streams
Submitted by Gregory Simonian
Please describe the problem:
I am trying to play a movie ( http://www.shsu.edu/~chm_tgc/sounds/ruther.mov ) which is apparently a .mov encoded as a GIF with audio. I downloaded the video and tried to play it in Totem, but I instead got a "Could not decode stream" error. I have all of the codecs installed and the problem was confirmed by #gstreamer on FreeNode. I tried playing the file on Windows using Quicktime, and it played perfectly, so it couldn't be a problem with the file.
Steps to reproduce:
- Download http://www.shsu.edu/~chm_tgc/sounds/ruther.mov
- Open using Totem
A very brief frame of the video displays then Totem gives a "Could not decode stream" error.
Ideally, the whole video should play correctly. However, #gstreamer informed me that there's no decoder for the audio. However, the movie should at least display.
Does this happen every time?
I've tried playing it with Totem, Mplayer, and VLC. Totem doesn't work. Mplayer only plays about 20 seconds of the movie. And VLC gets the length of the movie, but doesn't actually play anything.
