Description of problem:

Totem crashes immediately if I give a wrong url

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open totem player
2. open url "mirror.fluendo.com:8800"
( I know the url above is supposed to include http:// but totem
shouldnt crash without it)
Actual results:

Immediate crash 

Expected results:

let me know its a non existant url or add http:// automatically maybe?

Works for me with 0.99.18-2; can you still reproduce?

Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2004-10-18 19:56:00 UTC

Ok. after running the update totem doesnt crash if given a wrong url.
It just ignores this "mirror.fluendo.com:8800". I believe that a error
dialog information that this is a non existant url would be more

I tried "http://fluendo.com:8800". It hangs. I had to force quit the
application and then it wouldnt start again. I restarted the machine.
Was able to start totem now. gave url
"http://mirror.fluendo.com:8800". totem said its streaming but didnt
show anything for a few mins. was able to see a blue screen after

tried again "http://fluendo.com:8800".was able to reproduce the
earlier behaviour precisely. totem from the command line just returns
the shell back immediately with no output.

totem version is 0.99-19_1

If you require any further information please ask

One more thing. force quitting totem leaves a process running. I
killed it as root and restarted the application successfully

Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2005-08-13 00:29:12 UTC

ok. I can reproduce this problem with totem-1.1.3-1. This should definitely do

Just test on FC6, and I definitely don't get a crash.

As for making the Open Location more intelligent, it's already upstream at:
