I am unable to stream mp3's (and other media formats) from totem. I'm not sure when this started happening but I know this used to work via firefox plugin, but since then I've done an in-place upgrade from 11.10 to 12.04
The issue is driving me to distraction now so I've done some experimentation and discovered that even from the command line it's broken
This says it's streaming then status bar updates to "playing" but just stalls and does nothing.
If, however I download the file first there's no issue:
wget http://users.skynet.be/fa046054/home/P22/track06.mp3 && totem track06.mp3
The symptom is the same calling totem from firefox plugin, regular gui and cli.
Some additional info:
- OS: Precise 12.04 (AMD64)
- WM: Gnome 3
I do not want to install VLC. This question relates to how to fix the problem properly ... not hack a temporary workaround. Any related information to existing bug reports welcome
