Description Michael A. Peters 2004-10-27 13:48:12 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
I built the faad2 plugin for gstreamer.

playing a .m4a file (encoded with iTunes) works from
gst-launch-ext-0.8 so I know the faad2 plugin works

When I launch totem and select a .m4a file, totem crashes.

log file from  totem > totem.log 2>&1

will be attached.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch totem
2. try to open a .m4a aac file

Actual Results:  totem crashes

Expected Results:  totem plays the file

Additional info:

I am not asking for aac support in Fedora Core.
But totem should be able to play the file is support has been added to
gstreamer. gstreamer can play the file, so the bug seems to be with totem.

If I call the .m4a file from totem directly - the band and song name
correctly display in totem, it doesn't crash, but it doesn't play.

I can toggle the play and pause button, but it doesn't play. The time
bar remains greyed out.

If in nautilus I assign totem to be the player for files of type .m4a
- then select the file in nautilus and choose "open with totem" it works.

The progress bar zips through - but it works.

Weird that three different results happen with three different methods
of trying to play the file.

It is now working perfectly in the scenarios where it did not before.
I do not know why, it wasn't an update to gstreamer or faad2 or totem
- but it's working now.
