Description Branko Grubic 2021-09-02 22:08:08 UTC
On my system with profile:

and gnome-base/gnome installed. Sushi fails to preview video files, audio plays, but there are no controls and no video, only some kind of broken icon is displayed on the preview window and the "window decoration" with a button to play in default video player.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Nautilus (Files)
2. press spacebar on a video file
3. audio plays but no video
Actual Results:  
Video files preview doesn't work, only audio plays in the background

Expected Results:  
Video files preview works

After manually installing media-plugins/gst-plugins-gtk restaring nautilus (not sure if needed), and starting preview of the same file(s), video preview works, and playback controls are displayed as well

I have added a pull request adding media-plugins/gst-plugins-gtk as RDEPEND for gnome-extra/sushi, I guess this works, but it could be that there are better options. Next option which comes to my mind (being just a user, so I could be wrong), this can be added as a dependency to media-plugins/gst-plugins-meta and included via USE="gtk" which I guess is part of desktop profile and gnome as well, I guess that would be good enough and media-plugins/gst-plugins-gtk is a gstreamer plugin, so potentially that also make sense to pull it in with the meta ebuild.
