Description

Downstream distributions have begun to drop support for GStreamer 0.10, and this prevents use of Record activity.

See also #3738 (port to Gtk3) which will have to be done first.

Pardon my lack of knowledge, but isn't there some issue with ever porting record to Gstreamer 1.0 on the XO? Previous discourse trended towards this area from memory.

Is this issue likely to be fixed? Or will OLPC maintain a fork with gstreamer 0.10?

I don't know of an issue with porting Record to GStreamer 1.0 on the XO; I don't recall seeing any testing. The XO isn't particularly relevant to this ticket, as it is stuck with Fedora 18 or Fedora 20. Debian and Fedora are dropping GStreamer 0.10. Ubuntu seems to be keeping it for 16.04, but I expect it to be dropped after that as they track Debian somewhat. While there have been discussions about Debian on the XO-1 and XO-1.5, the requirement was for a modern Firefox in the MATE desktop, and not Sugar. So for Sugar, and therefore Record, the long term goal should be to port.

Debian has just dropped sugar-record-activity (bug 799709) because of the GStreamer 0.10 drop.

Same is happening with Turtle Blocks. Need to get the GTK-3 version into better shape.
