Hi Federico,

1.4.2 broke ABI by adding some fields to the CBytePerfMon structure.
See https://github.com/Haivision/srt/issues/1592 for details.
Any progress on this? The freeze for bullseye is around the corner, and
this bug is already impacting other packages that fail to migrate to
testing due to srt not migrating.

Hi Sebastian,

Upstream fixed this now by making the soversion 1.4 and from now on
guaranteeing that patch versions (1.4.0 -> 1.4.X) do not break ABI.
It would make sense to backport that fix and then rename the
library package accordingly to libsrt1.4.
For gst-plugins-bad1.0 only a binNMU would be needed once this is
sorted out here.
Can you do this please? srt is orphaned, your package depend on it,
could you please help us get us out of this situation? (if this
happens soon, we'll accept the transition to fix this).
I'll try to have some time for that this weekend.
