Description Lukáš Polívka 2016-01-19 19:29:53 EST
I will happily provide any missing details or do any tests.

Description of problem:
For some time now I have not been able to play any videos from my NAS (SMB) or locally in Totem. In both cases (SMB & local) the error message is the same:
An error occured
This file cannot be played over the network. Try downloading it locally first.

I *can* play the file from the CLI using this, for example:
gst-launch-1.0 playbin uri=file:///home/spike411/Videos/ducks_take_off_444_720p25.ogg
(plays the video in an OpenGL window with no playback controls)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
totem 3.19.3
GStreamer Core Library version 1.7.1

How reproducible:
Tested with a Theora test video ("ducks") from here: https://wiki.xiph.org/TheoraTestsuite
Also happens with the usual H.264 videos in MKV and MP4 containers. (I do have the necessary gst plugins from RPMFusion.)

Additional info:
System info: http://ur1.ca/ofj1z
Output of opening the file with totem --gst-debug-level=4: http://ur1.ca/ofj3d
Running Gnome 3 on Wayland.

Same issue here. AFAIK, this is fixed by 

The issue lay in gstreamer1-base 1.7.1 which should hopefully be updated and/or backport-patched. Unfortunately, no gstreamer unstable release currently contains the fix.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
