Bug#560196: gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg: xvid decoding fails/hangs because ffdec_mpeg4_vdpau is used instead of ffdec_mpeg4

Package: gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
Version: 0.10.9-2
Severity: important

gst-launch-0.10 playbin2 uri=file:///path/to/foo.avi

containing xvid video fails to preroll (in totem as well), because
playbin*/decodebin* try to use the ffdec_mpeg4_vdpau element instead
of the ffdec_mpeg4 element. Both have a PRIMARY rank.

Upstream git has a patch for this.
