During https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Test_Day:2011-02-03_GNOME3_Alpha I used image http://adamwill.fedorapeople.org/gnome3_test_day_20110203/gnome3_test_20110203.iso.
I've downloaded and played http://people.opera.com/shwetankd/webm/sunflower.webm. Then started to torture totem by pausing, rewinding video etc. and after some time video playback stopped. Totem was still responsive, but video didn't react to playback controls.
I experienced similar issues with seeking/rewinding etc. in sunflower.webm, however sintel-360p.webm works fine seeking/rewinding/pausing/playing etc.:
Can you still reproduce the problem with more recent versions of Totem? My guess is that this was a bug in GStreamer that got fixed. If the problem still happens, please gather a backtrace of the hang.
Charles, Oleg did you get a chance to try out latest versions of Totem ?
I did not. It seems I don't have time/priority to test this. Sorry.
Let's assume this to be OBSOLETE. Please reopen if this is not the case.
