Bug#734612: libgstreamer0.10-0: High network bandwidth used to play 128kbit/sec mp3 encoded audio (7.2Mbytes/sec shown in system monitor app) also high on .avi video files with mp3 encoded audio tracks.

Package: libgstreamer0.10-0
Version: 0.10.36-1.2
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,

I installed Debian 7.3 to replace my instalations of Ubuntu 12.04 on my systems
1 of which is a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop and first noticed that I could no-
longer veiw videos stored on my Readynas NV+ over wifi.
I then connected my laptop in wired mode and all was OK except that the system
monitor application was showing a rather high network bandwidth I then tried
with just an audio file and saw a very similar high bandwidth  of 7.2Mbytes/s
for a 128kbit/s mp3 encoded audio file.
At this point I thought it was a problem with the laptop but checked and the
other 2 systems that I had updated and they show the same symtoms so I re
installed Ubuntu 12.04 on one and all was fine I then reverted all my
systems to Ubuntu and installed a Debian 7.3 on a USB stick for testing
purposes and eliminated the kernel and totem as the source of the problem as
well as plugins ugly (substitued fluendo) so I am filing this against
the gstreamer core package libgstreamer0.10-0
