My newly installed gloobus won' t load video or audio files. It can load mp4 video but only outputs the audio, it won' t show any image from the video file. It used to work fine on a previews install of 12.04 on the same machine. It can still preview images though.

SOLVED! I just had to let movie player download codecs to support video and audio formats when trying to open those videos with movie player. or via terminal run this command

sudo apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-fluendo-mp3 gstreamer0.10-gnonlin gstreamer0.10-sdl gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-schroedinger gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly totem-plugins-extra
