Package: gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad
Version: 0.10.23-6

Totem, using gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad v0.10.23-6, can't play mp4 files.
No error message, just a blank screen.

There's a discussion and a patch at:


I applied a modified form of that patch to gst-plugins-bad0.10_0.10.23
from Debian repository and the issue is fixed for me. The patch I
applied is attached.

Doug McMahon, at Launchpad, recommended I refer you to:
