After starting Totem in Ubuntu 12.10 (playing an .MTS file), it starts out playing just fine, but after about 3 seconds the sound goes away. No clue at all what is happening. .MPG files play just fine.
The videos play just fine, with sound, in VLC.
EDIT: Pausing the video and then starting again brings sound back for about one second, and then the sound fades again.
I am a huge fan of totem and mplayer and prefer their sound to other applications. I want to setup my multimedia library in such a way that when I play any multimedia file it should be played in totem/mplayer.
PS: I use Ubuntu 11.10.
PPS: I would really appreciate if I could get most of the functionalities of softwares such as Banshee and Rhythmbox if not all.
I followed the guide for restricted formats and i can play my videos with SMplayer, Xine, VLC etc but not Totem. Totem in 11.3 uses Gstreamer, and i believe i have all gstreamer plugins installed, good, bad, ugly, base etc. Also thumbnails won't show. Reason i want to use Totem? cuz it's integrated well with Gnome
