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 ?
Comment 4 Oleg 2012-09-06 15:31:27 UTC
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.
