Package: gstreamer0.8-mpeg2dec
Version: 0.8.11-2
Severity: normal

I was getting audio-only when viewing .mpg movies in totem, so I thought
that installing gstreamer0.8-mpeg2dec would do the trick. Please confirm
that this is the correct package for viewing mpg movies with

During the installation, I saw the following error:

  Setting up gstreamer0.8-mpeg2dec (0.8.11-2) ...
  OIL: ERROR liboiltest.c 309: oil_test_check_impl(): function
  fbCompositeSolid_nx8888mmx in class composite_over_argb_const_src
  failed check (1.67772e+07 > 100) outside=0

Now totem hangs when I playing an .mpg file.

I'm working around the problem by using totem-xine instead of
totem-gstreamer but can reinstall totem-gstreamer if you want me to
perform a test for you.
