The tests in bug 1121692 went intermittently orange, and got disabled. These were the first and only in-tree tests for the MSE code that we're planning to ship on youtube. I think figuring out why they're timing out is pretty important.
Try push with some logging: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=4f0750abe27e
So, one of the problems here is that we don't have an h264 story on winxp (duh), and don't have a way to mark the test as skip-if in the winxp case. I'll file a bug about that. However, this did go orange at least once on win7 with my logging machinery. The log is here: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/logviewer.html#?job_id=4475740&repo=try I've pruned the log of unrelated stuff locally (especially other decoders that get shutdown off a timer gc), and will upload that.
This *should* work: skip-if = (os == "win" && os_version == "5.1")
bug 1126465 fixes one of the failure modes, but as  shows, not all (I'd seen this second failure mode before on the original push too). Pushing with more logging to see if I can suss out the second failure: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=502857b1c8e3  https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=5e55dfa4445a
Comment 5 wasn't able to reproduce any failure in the test with logging (and that was a week ago, which is an eternity in the MSE codebase). I just did another set of pushes with the same results. The first just turns the test back on, the second does so and activates the logging: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=714cc4e2117e https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=27107a65b2ee So far those look pretty green. Ryan, are you comfortable with me turning the test back on, or are there any other steps I should take?
Are we going to leave the logging on when it's re-enabled? If so, go for it. Try doesn't lie (usually) :)
