    Totem Movie Player 3.4.2 and MP4s

    Not sure what happened since I moved to 12.04, but now my movie player doesn't seem to play all my MP4 files that it use to play. It does play some of them, but there some it won't play at all for reasons unknown. Anyone else notice this type of issue?

    Nope, it just shows playing 0:00/0:00 at the bottom. I thought the files might of gotten corrupted some how, but they all play in VLC. Well I guess that's not fair since VLC will play pretty much anything.

    Vlc does have a couple plugins that totem may not have.

    likely the result of this bug
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...10/+bug/973014

    The best fix by far is to rebuild the ugly plugin source with the patch I supplied in comment 33, a lesser 'workaround' is to move libgstvideoparsersbad.so to a .bak as shown in comment 22 noting arch

    Thanks mc4man, I tried the workaround and that's good enough for me. Any other mishaps I'll just use VLC.
