Hi Darren,

Thanks for the clarification.

I am building on Edison.  I found that ogg music files play
OK on my gaku player.  I think that should be good enough, but just for my information purposes
can you help me understand how does one accept the commercial iirc license ?
This has changed relatively recently, and I'm not finding the details in
the current docs. For example, the gst-fluendo-mp3 recipe includes:

LICENSE_FLAGS = "commercial"

Taking a look at the git logs with "LICENSE_FLAGS" in them, in order to
allow for building of such recipes, you must include "commercial" in the
LICENSE_FLAGS_WHITELIST variable. I would attempt this with something
like the following in my local.conf:


Tom, can you confirm I've got this right?

Yeah, that's right.

I'm interested in this subject also.  If I use hob to look at a nice display of packages, I see that their are a lot of gst-fluendo-* pckages with MPLv1.1 Licenses. However, I don't see gst-fluendo-mp3 specifically. 
  1. Is that package not a part of Yocto and a recipe has to be written to get it from somewhere?
  2. I know I can get the fluendo MP3 for Ubuntu with a click-through license for personal use.

Scott, once Tom confirms, this is a mechanism we need to get documented
in the reference manual.

What type of music files is the Gaku music player on Sato desk top
supposed to play ?

For me it did not work with mp3 files..however it is playing the
soundtrack from a .ogg video file
It depends on which licenses you allow (the gstreamer mp3 plugin
requires acceptance of the commercial license iirc). Are you building on
edison or master?
