Package: gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
Version: 0.10.2-2
Severity: normal

gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg's H.264 decoding seems to be broken with regards to 
things that fly in from the left side of the video. This results in 
trails of green blocks appearing in the video coming in from the left 

libxine1 used to display the exact same symptoms, and more details about 
that can be found in bug #395869. However, sometime between the initial 
reporting of that bug and the switch of libxine1 to using the system 
ffmpeg libraries, the bug got fixed.

This behavior has also been fixed in the Debian ffmpeg libraries, as 
ffplay renders the videos I'm seeing this bug from gstreamer in 

Hopefully, gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg will either get a new ffmpeg snapshot 
soon or get the link-against-system-libraries patch applied soon.
