It looks like it's specific to the video. Could you please tell me the exact
versions of GStreamer and plugins used, as well as gathering a backtrace with

It would also be useful if you could check whether every Theora video is doing
this, and if not, make the video that's causing the problem available.

Installed gstreamer packages :

gstreamer.x86_64                         0.10.13-0.1.fc7        installed       
gstreamer-debuginfo.x86_64               0.10.13-0.1.fc7        installed       
gstreamer-plugins-base.x86_64            0.10.12-2.fc7          installed       
gstreamer-plugins-base-debuginfo.x86_64  0.10.12-2.fc7          installed       
gstreamer-plugins-good.x86_64            0.10.5-6.fc7           installed       
gstreamer-plugins-good-debuginfo.x86_64  0.10.5-6.fc7           installed       
gstreamer-tools.x86_64                   0.10.13-0.1.fc7        installed 

Not every video causes this, just some of them. So far I have problems with
FudCon 2007 - Boston videos from http://torrent.fedoraproject.org 

I did sha1sum check but can't find any shasum file to compare these results :

Please upgrade your gstreamer-plugins-good and associated to the latest F7
version, as well as libtheora to 1.0alpha8-0.1.svn13393.fc7 (all available in
updates-testing) and let me know whether this fixes the problem.
Comment 8 Rafał Polak 2007-09-03 14:00:30 EDT
I did as you said :

gstreamer.x86_64                         0.10.13-0.1.fc7        installed       
gstreamer-plugins-base.x86_64            0.10.13-1.fc7          installed       
gstreamer-plugins-good.x86_64            0.10.6-1.fc7           installed       
gstreamer-tools.x86_64                   0.10.13-0.1.fc7        installed
libtheora.x86_64                         1.0alpha8-0.1.svn13393 installed

and everything works good now. There was another issue with Totem. After closing
Totem its process didn't die and I wanted to report that but it seems to be also
fixed by updating those packages.
