video under linux
Hi!

I have never seen video work with Otter under Linux. I just downloaded the latest appimage, and when I run it from the command line I repeatedly see these errors (in this particular case it was YouTube but it happens with other sites as well):

Code: [Select]
(otter-browser:32564): GStreamer-WARNING **: Failed to load plugin '/usr/lib64/gstreamer-1.0/libgstlibav.so': /lib64/libharfbuzz.so.0: undefined symbol: FT_Reference_Face

For what it's worth:
  • I'm running an up-to-date Fedora 25, and the problem persists across several machines (desktops, laptop, ...)
  • I've confirmed that the referenced libraries actually exist in the places give in that message
  • What I end up seeing is a black box with the wait animation (rotating white almost-a-circle)


Is it possible to fix this?

@cantanima, it looks like incompatible version of HarfBuzz.
Obviously the simplest way to fix it should be simply build from scratch. ;-)
You should be able to find revived QtWebKit in updates-testing repository.

You mean the Fedora updates-testing repository?

@cantanima, yeah, I've got that information from maintainer that is working on bringing that package to Fedora.

FWIW I just added that repo and it offered nothing with qtwebkit that I didn't already have. Not on Fedora 25, anyway. Is it possible that this is actually coming in F26?

@cantanima, no idea, I'll let you know when I'll get reply from maintainer.

@cantanima, apparently they were moved to stable updates now.
