Summary0003548: Please provide sources for src/plugins/testdata/* or clearly state these are not released under GPL3+
DescriptionMost of the files under src/plugins/testdata/ are binary, and they come without their sources. It should be clear that these are not released under the GPL or there should be a way to retrieve the sources.

For instance, who is the owner of gstreamer_barsandtone.flv and where could we find its sources ?

TagsNo tags attached.

Those are media files created with the respective editing tools, sometimes non-free creating tools as we need to test those formats as well. But the files themselves are _test_ files with no content of significance. Copyright requires the document to be past a certain threshold in terms of creativity, which those files do not meet. So they generally don't have a license as they often fail that threshold test, especially that gstreamer_barsandtone.flv file.
