    Re: cannot play all media types

    likely a current gstreamer bad plugin bug
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...10/+bug/973014

    To test to see if affected or as a hack around if affected
    On a 64 bit install
    Code:
    sudo mv /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideoparsersbad.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideoparsersbad.so.bak
    On a 32 bit install
    Code:
    sudo mv /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideoparsersbad.so /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/gstreamer-0.10/libgstvideoparsersbad.so.bak
    If doing the above fixes playback in gstreamer apps like totem then if desired a more proper fix is to rebuild the plugin with a patch to fix this (waiting on Debian/Ubuntu will prove to be a long one

    I show one way to do so here -
