    Details

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: P3
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 8
    • Fix Version/s: 8u40
    • Component/s: javafx
    • Environment:

      Mac OSX 10.9, Mac App Store.

      Description

      GStreamer uses QuickTime, and that will keep a JavaFX app from being accepted in the Mac App Store.

      Specifically, in 10.9 they deprecated QuickTime:
      https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/releasenotes/MacOSX/WhatsNewInOSX/Articles/MacOSX10_9.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40013207-SW5
      And use of deprecated features prevents Apple from approving the submissions.

      This is a major problem for App Store support, and potentially a gating issue.

      A possible work around is to build without gstreamer.
