Description Praveen Thirukonda 2010-02-05 08:37:12 UTC
if one uses a software like hjsplit and many others to split video files into like 

etc. totem can play only the first one ie 001 and the rest totem is not able to play.

VLC for eg when the first file is opened in it, then it loads the whole length video ie all the the files from .001 to .00x
The total video length is also shown in the timeline.

Files in this format are commonly found on the net.

Once this is fixed:
/* TODO:
 *  - implement splitfile:// URI handler?

In gst-plugins-good/gst/multifile/gstsplitfilesrc.c

Then you could do:
totem splitfile:///path/to/all/abc.avi.*

    splitfilesrc: small uri handler fixup and some more docs
    Get URI location using gst_uri_get_location(), so any
    escaped bits get unescaped.
