Software - gstreamer010-ffmpeg: dependency hell?

Post subject: gstreamer010-ffmpeg: dependency hell?
As described in a previous thread (http://aptosid.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&p=14499#14499), my phonon backend stuff broke approx. two weeks ago.

Today, I noticed that Skype video was not working, and I suspect it's connected to changing phonon backend from vlc to gstreamer.
So I tried to add more capabilities to gstreamer by installing the ffmpeg links:
      Code:
apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg


This didn't work, because the package has unmet dependecies:
      Code:
Die folgenden Pakete haben unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten:
 gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg : Hängt ab von: libpostproc52 (>= 4:0.8~beta2-2) soll aber nicht installiert werden oder
                                       libpostproc-extra-52 (>= 4:0.8~beta2-2) soll aber nicht installiert werden
                        Hängt ab von: libavcodec53 (< 5:0) aber 5:0.8.5-0.0 soll installiert werden oder
                                       libavcodec-extra-53 (< 5:0) soll aber nicht installiert werden
E: Beschädigte Pakete


Ah, before you ask: No, I don't use third party repositories (except of opera, which doesn't mangle with multimedia stuff...)

Any hints here?

Thanks,
Thomas

Yes. You are using a third party repo which also provides libavcodec53. You can see this by the package number starting with "5:".

We and Debian cannot do anything, please ask the person who is providing the repository you are using.

No, I think that is not correct.

      Code:
root@imerabox:/home/don# apt-cache policy libavcodec*
libavcodec53:

No third party repo here, either. But phonon with gstreamer backend is working well, including skype.

      Code:

This is 3rd party repo (mythtv)

      Code:
apt-cache policy libavcodec*
libavcodec53:

  Candidate: 5:0.10.2-0.0
  Version table:
 *** 5:0.10.2-0.0 0

      Code:
apt-cache policy gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg:

Double checked things. You are correct, that libavcodec53 is newer than the repository version.
However, I have _no_ relevant 3rd party repos in my sources.list (as said, I don't consider opera relevant for multimedia stuff):
http://pastebin.com/RCR1CdL3

I suspect there are newer packages left over from times when I used 3rd party repos (even when I can't remember having done that...).

Now, I want to get in sync with Debian sid again, so I face the challenge of downgrading a certain number of packages (I found at least libavcodec51/53, libavutils51, but there may be others).

Is there a way to put all packages back to a certain mirror's versions (I think the question is similar to going back to stable from unstable or such, and this might not be officically supported :-/ )?
At least, I think I have no packages that are _not_ available on my mirror, so just changing all versions to the officical "sid" ones would leave no unsolved dependencies...

Not sure if it's important here, but I saw this:
      Quote:

libav (5:0.8.1-3) unstable; urgency=low

* The ffmpeg program has been deprecated and replaced with avconv.
The ffmpeg program is only provided for compatibility purposes and
will be removed in a future release. For a list of the
incompatible changes between the two programs, see
/usr/share/doc/ffmpeg/changelog.gz.

There is a little script in the german wiki at aptosidusers.de here: http://wiki.aptosidusers.de/index.php?t ... _sortieren You might use it to clarify which of the packages apart from opera arehaving a different versioning from sid repos.

So as part of the ffmpeg->avconv transition maybe file bug reports against packages affected by this change?

You are right, it changed two days ago. I have not checked it. My bad Wink
