Honestly, I don't have the slightest idea on the matter. I know there was
a gstreamer update today:

Jul 30 14:57:45 Updated: gstreamer-tools-
Jul 30 14:57:46 Updated: gstreamer-
Jul 30 14:57:48 Updated: gstreamer-devel-

If this fixes the problem, it would be nice. I'd then have no problem with
Totem and gstreamer.

The problem, you see, is that there's a Microsoft shill working for the
most important network of papers in Quebec and they have a site called
cyberpresse.ca .

Said shill uses Ubuntu, often makes all he can to run into trouble and
then explains how complicated Linux really is despite using the "claimed"
easiest distro. For instance, when he installed the last version of
Firefox, instead of waiting for the package to arrive, he downloaded the
tgz from Mozilla, said he followed every instruction he could find on the
net -- which as often happens were maybe... incomplete -- and finally
concluded that installation went well with Mac and Windows, but was a
disaster with Linux.

So now, imagine when he gets to Radio-Canada and there's a real problem
with Totem: it takes a whole week before he gets it working, and it's a
pain, and now it doesn't work anymore, and so on.

Go figure why people believe Linux is so complicated.
