GStreamer 1.24.0 and a new Warning

Hi all,
since I upgraded to the latest GStreamer 1.24

I get this warning
(FireflyLuciferin:36608): GStreamer-WARNING **: 12:27:23.362: External plugin loader failed. This most likely means that the plugin loader helper binary was not found or could not be run. You might need to set the GST_PLUGIN_SCANNER environment variable if your setup is unusual. This should normally not be required though.

I never seen this warning before, what can it be?


How did you update? Did you properly configured the prefix ti match your installation?

using the MSI installer.
I use the same path as always.

A --gst-debug= or GST_DEBUG=*:INFO,*PLUGIN*:LOG debug log might shed some light.

Can you try with 1.24.1? I think this commit might have fixed your issue, registry, ptp: Canonicalize the library path returned by dladdr (bd97973c) · Commits · GStreamer / gstreamer · GitLab

Thanks for the answer philn, I appreciate it,
I’ll try it once the installer will be ready.

1.24.1 binaries are up now.

Same warning even with 1.24.1
the weird thing is that the Warning does not shows every time.

Sometimes I see it, sometimes not…

Please provide debug logs suggested by Tim.

I saw some as well in Gstreamer 1.24.1. For example, qt libs are missing for qml6 sink although qml6 sink is not used. My app is still using Qt5. Maybe ignore them. But do pay attention to these warnings for libs or plugins which are used.
