This review is getting too long without a solution.
You have not modified the package a bit according to my comments.
I do not want to prevent Fedora users from enjoying Me TV.
Package it the way you want. I can only hope that the potential initial
troubles will not discourage them.
Please anyone who can approve the package do it if only my comments have
> Users would be confused why the application does not work.
User of Fedora usually expects problems with multimedia stuff.
You are probably wasting your time in RPMFusion. You can also say that Fedora
users are usually able to compile the necessary bits themselves.
I vote for the inclusion in the main Fedora repository in such case.
> All other engines are in the *experimental* state...
I am fully aware that the status for additional engines is experimental, but
few weeks ago they didn't even exist. For me it is a progress into the right
The MPlayer engine was also present in the series 5 for testing purposes.
And it is to let gstreamer to find the required codec itself via the
integration with PackageKit. There are other ways (and even legal the
respective countries) to get the codecs besides using stuff from RPM Fusion.
We have discussed it several times with Michael. It is the right way how to do
it in the future.
And we are modifying the build system to enable the selection of the default
engine and to enable or disable other engines to fit distribution and user's
Unfortunately the GStreamer engine brings a big problem with the deinterlacer
There are several deinterlace filters (in gst-ffmpeg and gst-plugins-bad).
Michael said the last time we discussed it that they do not deinterlace video
I do not know whether there is a deinterlace filter in the Fluendo codecs
Anyway the GStreamer engine is only a simple playbin. It stops playing with
every stream format change or a signal gap and therefore it is almost unusable
for the end user.
If you want to include the GStreamer engine you are free to contribute
Note: The GStreamer engine is not the default one. If the user does not have
already the nasty bits installed, Me TV (xine-ui) does not work for DVB. The
Fluendo codecs do not solve the problem of the xine-ui player, they only solve
the problem of the license. The user must install the freeworld package for
