Source: ffmpeg
Severity: normal


I can't play mp4 files using totem anymore, only a black screen is displayed.
I was told on #debian-multimedia to report the bug against ffmpeg.

I get the following message on the console:

(totem:7753): GStreamer-WARNING **: Failed to load plugin '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gstreamer-1.0/libgstlibav.so': dlopen: cannot load any more object with static TLS
** Message: Missing plugin: gstreamer|1.0|totem|H.264 decoder|decoder-video/x-h264, stream-format=(string)avc, alignment=(string)au, level=(string)3.1, profile=(string)high, parsed=(boolean)true (H.264 decoder)
** Message: Automatic missing codec installation not supported (helper
script missing)

The file is present on my system:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 236016 Jul 20 20:29

Any help would be appreciated!
