Good news: Nautilus no longer hangs when previewing sound files anymore

Bad news: When trying to preview sound files now, the "speech balloon with a
note inside" icon shows up, but the sound file doesn't actually play.

Works fine in rawhide here. Do you still have this problem ?
Comment 3 Christopher Tubbs 2008-05-10 01:27:59 EDT
I noticed this problem too, but at the time, I was also unable to play wav files
in totem. yum remove totem\*, then reinstalling them worked for me. I have sound
in totem again, and in nautilus.
