Description of problem:
When "previewing" sound files (ie: Nautilus starts playing sound files automatically when just hovering over them with the mouse), Nautilus hangs, both on Ogg and Wav files.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enable previewing of sound files in Nautilus
2.Hover the mouse over a soudn file
3.Watch Nautilus hang
Setting as "High" since this is the equivalent of a crash
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 ?
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.
