installing gstreamer-vaapi crashes totem / sushi , totem / sushi can't play any video file in any format , audio files works fine .

Additional info:
* package version(s)

gstreamer-vaapi 0.6.1-1
totem 3.18.1-1
gstreamer 1.6.1 ( all gst 1.6 packages )

* config and/or log files etc.

Hardware : MBA 6,2 , i5-4250U , intel HD 5000 graphics .

here is output when opening a video file with totem from CLI :

libva info: VA-API version 0.38.0
libva info: va_getDriverName() returns 0
libva info: Trying to open /usr/lib/dri/
libva info: Found init function __vaDriverInit_0_38
libva info: va_openDriver() returns 0

(totem:10868): Cogl-WARNING **: driver/gl/cogl-buffer-gl.c:93: GL error (1280): Invalid enumeration value

other applications that utilize gstreamer-vaapi are working fine , like videos in firefox .

Steps to reproduce:

1- install totem , gstreamer and gstreamer-vaapi ( on intel graphic system i guess ) .
2- try to play any video file .

this has been going on since gnome 3.16 .
This task depends upon

Not that this is different than  FS#40807

clearly not the same , as the  FS#40807  issue concerns hardware that uses wrappers around VAAPI , namely AMD & nvidia , while my hardware is intel graphic & am using libva-intel-driver NOT the vdpau one , also if you look here : , there are people with the same hardware and the same issue .

gstreamer-vaapi 0.7.0-1 seems to fix the issue

This problem has been tracked upstream here: , current investigation in (Its a gst-plugins-base problem, not gst-vaapi)

Same problem with an AMDGPU video card. Seems like totem try to use VA API instead of VDPAU(which I don't know, it works both in mpv and vlc)

Nautilus does not thumbnail certain video files correctly when this package is installed (Intel GPU).
