Yes hello I have been watching the various bugs listed on bugzilla, I 
got that fix from the gstreamer1-plugins-gl bug page. It all seems like 
a mishmash of random fixes that work or don't for different people, 
obviously depending on what plugins they have and why. But I have had no 
positive results other than gstreamer1-plugins-gl, which I rolled back 
and removed to wait for an actual update. I'm just wondering if everyone 
is aware that there is some larger problem with all of these and that 
its piling up and meanwhile we still have half broken systems for a week 
and a half.
