Package: gstreamer0.10-plugins-good
Version: 0.10.31-3
Severity: normal

This is a modification of a bug I just submitted (appended). I've isolated the
problem I've got with totem in 64-bit wheezy with mp4 files to files produced
with ffmpeg. Other mp4 files seem to play OK with totem. The files in question
were downloads from youtube. These mp4 files--produced with the current ffmpeg
--play with mplayer2 and vlc. In squeeze I did not have this problem, so this
is to me a regression.
previous bug report
Package: totem
Version: 3.0.1-8
Severity: normal

totem does not play mp4 files on a new wheezy amd64 installation. I'm reporting
this here because wheezy is "testing" and one assumes you want to hear about
things before it becomes "stable."

mplayer2 and vlc work fine for mp4s. Also totem generally works for CDs and
DVDs, as I've installed the deb-multimedia codecs. I believe I have the correct
gstreamer modules installed too:

# dpkg --listfiles gstreamer0.10-plugins-good|grep mp

Isn't this what totem is supposed to use for playing mp4 files?
