#10602 new Bug Report - General

Playback profiles do not fall back to follow-up entries should the first fail

The video playback profile editor let you enter different entries according to specific video size criteria.

The choice of a playback profile works only according to those criteria. If one is automatically selected, only to later fail ; for say when the video codec isn't supported, it doesn't try another video profile.

For example, say you have a VAAPI profile, that as first entry uses VAAPI for all decoding and vaapi for deinterlacing, and a 2nd entry that uses ffmpeg for decoding and opengl for deinterlacer.

if the VAAPI/GPU doesn't support a particular codec, it only reverts to ffmpeg decoding. It should try the next entry in the playback profile. If not, as deinterlacers aren't available any longer, the video being played isn't deinterlaced and it looks awful.

Should playback profiles properly worked, a side effect would be to have for example a general "Hardware Accelerated" profile. It would first try VDPAU, then VAAPI, then CrystalHD etc... it would greatly simplify user experience
