I'm guessing the actual playback problems are caused by bugs in mmssrc
from gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad, a GStreamer modules that seems to
receive far to little love...

These problems are only affect mms:// streams, and I'm not sure if it's
possible to sort them out from other embedded asf/wmv media.

The best solution would of course be if the problems in mmssrc was
fixed, but nothing has happened so far.
