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):
GStreamer Core Library version 1.7.1
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.)

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.
It's working now!
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.
