I welcome help with analysis and a fix, before I find time myself.  Thanks!
Comment 9 Sebastian Pipping gentoo-dev 2018-01-10 23:52:44 UTC
Let my dump notes on my analysis and potential fixes for now:

Current proposed fixed:

 * Add "test? ( ffmpeg? ( media-video/ffmpeg[encode,theora] ) )" to DEPEND

 * Change --without-gexiv2 to

    a) $(use_with test gexiv2)

    b) $(use_with gexiv2)

    c) --with-gexiv2

   for tests and depend on media-libs/gexiv2, accordingly.


 * The failing test are from tests/ff-load-save/, target "vids"
   behind a "if HAVE_AVFORMAT" guard

 * Once target "vids" would pass, target "images" would fail because

   * line "check: vids images" makes it run

   * target "images" requires file "examples/gegl-video" built

   * building "examples/gegl-video" is guarded with "if HAVE_GEXIV2"

   * and we have --without-gexiv2 hardcoded

 * when emerging media-video/ffmpeg-3.4.1[-theora,-vorbis] and running that
   single test again I get "could not open codec" rather than "codec not found"
   from that test
Comment 10 Sergey Torokhov 2020-03-07 23:02:00 UTC
If this issue is still reproduced fo media-libs/gegl-0.3.34[ffmpeg]?

I have only test issues that are described here:

But I'm about to disable this parts of tests for reason explained there.

    media-libs/gegl: 0.3.34, drop failed tests using gegl-video, vp8
    The 'gegl-video' executable is built only 'with-gexiv2' option enabled.
    Enabling of 'gexiv2' option on test phase allows
    to built 'gegl-video' executable and then this part passed.
    As mentioned in gegl-0.3.34.ebuild (as mentioned by previous maintainer):
    "mrg is not in tree and gexiv2 support only has effect
    when mrg support is enabled".
    But as this option is disabled for build without USE="test"
    (or FEATURES="test") and therefore isn't used in provided package
    I see no reason to fix compilation instead of disabling this part of test.
    The second error seems due to hardware doesn't support vp8 hardware encoding.
    AFAIK the vp8 hardware support is presented for intel since Broadwell
    (2014 year) and I didn't find if it's support by AMD CPUs or for other ARCHs.
    So this part of test is disabled here too.
