View Full Version : [edubuntu] Totem - Could not determine type of stream error

May 1st, 2010, 07:08 PM
Lately I can't play any videos in Totem and I always get the error - "Could not determine type of stream".

Here is the output from command line:

Message: Error: Could not determine type of stream.
gsttypefindelement.c(889): gst_type_find_element_activate (): /GstPlayBin2:play/GstURIDecodeBin:uridecodebin0/GstDecodeBin2:decodebin20/GstTypeFindElement:typefind
I tried reinstalling the application but that didn't help. I actually don't understand the problem, so I would greatly appreciate any kind of help.

Thank you,

I forgot to say I'm running edubuntu - Karmic.

Edit: Ok apparently it only has trouble playing the videos from Friends Season 9 :DDD how weired is that??? al the other videos now play fine. So I guess I should be looking for codecs to support those videos ?!? probably...
