Description fosero 2015-11-27 06:23:12 PST
Since webkitgtk 2.11.1 hls streaming on http://twitch.tv/ crashes the tab in epiphany a few seconds in (it does stream for a short bit). This used to work fine in 2.10 . Tested 2.11.2 as well. Same crash for other HLS streams I can find on the web.

Webkit built from scratch on Gentoo with llvm 3.7, however not a debug build (given the build time requirements).

Which GStreamer version? Since you're on Gentoo I suppose you built 1.6.1 at least, right?
Comment 2 fosero 2015-11-30 08:12:10 PST
All my installed gstreamer components are at 1.6.1 currently, that is correct.

The HLS streaming has been working for a long time already, so I am positive it also worked with the gstreamer 1.4 series and webkitgtk 2.10 . Possibly even before that, but I can't quite remember/be sure.

I'm also quite sure wk 2.10 in combination with gst 1.6 works, but can downgrade to be completely certain. It will however take a while building.

I think I've seen similar messages in some layout tests...
Comment 5 Philippe Normand 2015-11-30 23:52:42 PST
Bug 144040 is related then, possibly a duplicate. I'll check what's going on.
Comment 6 Sebastian Dröge (slomo) 2015-11-30 23:54:07 PST
Can someone get the URL to the actual HLS stream? That would allow debugging this without all of webkit around it... if the problem also appears there :)
Comment 7 fosero 2015-12-01 01:58:29 PST
Maybe easier to just grab a less confusing HLS example page. Here 2 pages that crash in the same way, but a lot easier to read their source.


As an added note, the commandline output posted earlier (#3) all appears before the stream starts to play, so before the crash.
