Description of problem:
Nautilus' properties panel for sound files (such as Ogg Vorbis files) contains
two audio panels: one called "Audio/Video" and the other called "Audio". The
second one has the useful information in it, the first one has invalid
information. I don't understand why both are there.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make or acquire an Ogg Vorbis file. Visit http://www.kahvi.org/ if you need
one to download.
2. Right-click on it and show the properties panel.
3. See the superfluous tab I just described.
Actual Results: I saw two tabs, one with correct info in it ("Audio") the other
with incorrect info in it ("Audio/Video" tab had "Unknown" listed for just about
Expected Results: I expected to see one tab with the right info in it (for
artist, name of song, etc.).
Depending on whether your Ogg Vorbis file has metainfo in it, you might need to
put some metainfo in the file. I used EasyTag to do this.
Hmm. I don't see this for /usr/share/redhat-credits.ogg. Do you?

The audio/video tab that really doesn't tell much.
This tab reveals little metainfo about the Ogg file.

This tab tells me more but makes me wonder if it can handle video.
This "audio" tab tells me what I want to know, but doesn't look like it can
handle video (which is coming soon in the form of Ogg Theora).
I installed RH9 on another machine from scratch, not an upgrade from any other
I did not see the Audio/Video tab on the Ogg file /usr/share/redhat-credits.ogg.
I now suspect something I installed somewhere along the line. I don't recall
installing anything that would do this, but I'll attempt to narrow down what it was.
Exactly. I don't see it either.
It's nautilus-media. I've filed this upstream:
