Comment 1 Viacheslav Gagara 2015-12-31 15:25:52 UTC
Fixed by adding "http" use flag for gst-plugins.
So, it seams like exaile should request "http" use flag for gst-plugins-meta to be able to play http streams.

request "http" use flag for gst-plugins-meta

here is the patch which works for me
Comment 3 Viacheslav Gagara 2019-02-18 09:32:15 UTC
Hey, what about this issue? It is still relevant for 4.0.0. Proposed fix also works for 4.0.0
Comment 4 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2019-08-04 11:39:16 UTC
You should manage the USE flags on gst-plugins-meta yourself. Otherwise we should be mirroring every single audio decoder related USE flag on gst-plugins-meta to exaile package, as otherwise mp3 might not work, or modplug might not work, or aac might not work, or ...
