Floating mouse point over .ogg files doesn't play them

Description of problem:
If I float my mouse pointer over .wav and .mp3 files, a music icon appears and
the file starts to play after a moment and then continues until such time as the
This doesn't happen with .ogg files. Neither the icon appears, not the file plays.

[rodd@localhost ~]$ rpm -q nautilus
.flac plays fine as well. Not sure why we don't get audio previews for .ogg.
Adding bnocera, since he's the one who cooked up that sweet little patch.
What's the output of "gnomevfs-ls" in the directory where the files are?
n/m, I remember now. The problem is that we don't check for equivalences in

What's the mime-type of the file as shown in the properties tab of nautilus?
Does previewing other file types (say MP3 files) work?
Never do this.
Better use "nautilus -q" and then run "nautilus" without any switches and
parameters, from GNOME run dialog or console.
Right, after a reboot it still doesn't work.
Mime type for .ogg files is audio/x-vorbis+ogg
Mime type for .mp3 file is audio/mpeg
nautilus version is 2.20.0-7.fc8

I can't reproduce the problem here.
You can try doing:
gnomevfs-cat <local file path> | gst-launch-0.10 playbin uri=fd://0
Also make sure that:
1. audio preview is enabled in the preferences
2. Pulseaudio is running
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
It looks like this bug is closed, but if it isn't it should be.
Is this functionality Gnome even still has, or wants?
