Description of problem:
Totem will not play an audio cd.
After inserting the cd I receive the following error message:

An error occurred
Could not open location; you might not have permission to open the file.

I have to admit I'm not sure if this is a totem bug or a gstreamer bug.

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert audio cd.
2. System opens Totem automatically based on my media handling preferences.
3. I receive error message.

Totem shouldn't even be in the options for playing back audio CDs, because it doesn't play audio CDs (use Rhythmbox, Sound Juicer, or anything else).

How/why did you add it?

I've used Totem to play my audio CDs since Fedora 5, though this is the first time that I've used the gstreamer backend.  I always used the xine-lib backend in the past.

I'm having a problem importing the CD audio into Rhythmbox - which I filed a separate bug for - but I can play my CDs with Sound Juicer with no problem.

To access my media handling preferences, I went to System > Preferences > Personal > File Management > Media > "Choose what happens when inserting media or connecting devices to the system."  On the CD Audio tab I select "Open Media Player" which leads me to believe that the system recognizes Totem as a way to play audio discs.

On older versions of Gnome I remember going into "Removable Media" (or some name close to that) under the system preferences and under CD Audio seeing the command "totem %d".  And like I said before I've always had Totem set as the default player for CDs and this is the first problem I've had with it.

Check the content of:

And remove the x-content/audio-cdda line from there, which probably mentions totem. Unfortunately, we can't fix that programatically
