Description Paul Wise 2017-01-21 12:06:31 UTC
Totem doesn't appear to be able to play the open source security podcast:

All of the 'Download Episode' links don't appear to work in totem but here is an example of a URL I tried to play:


totem doesn't print any debug output. totem can play it fine if I download it with wget and then play it. VLC on the same machine can play the same URL. 

There are a few redirects from the original URL, here is what wget says:

$ wget

I can reproduce the bug, it's a problem with totem-pl-parser which returns an error instead of saying it's not a playlist.
