Bug#630867: libgstreamer0.10-0: Incorrect duration calculated for Ogg streams

Package: libgstreamer0.10-0
Version: 0.10.34-1
Severity: normal

I am reporting this against the gstreamer library, because I am guessing
that library is responsible for exposing stream metadata to the media
player. I may have misjudged; if so, please reassign to whichever
package is responsible for this behaviour.

When using gstreamer in Totem to play an Ogg video file, Totem reports
the duration incorrectly.

For example, when I download the Ogg video file
and play it in Totem, the slider behaves as though the track duration is
2:42 (two minutes 42 seconds), but the video plays for over nine minutes.

Instead, for a file which can be interrogated for its exact duration,
the library should only report the correct duration to the player.
