Public bug reported:

Affects: gstreamer0.10 gstreamer0.10-x (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed


Description:
The following is on a fresh, unaltered install of Dapper Drake from the
daily build downloaded on 2006-04-17. The sound card on the machine is
an Audiophile 24/96 which was auto-detected correctly.

On trying to play any of the following three sample files (and others
I've tried), totem gives an error message "Totem could not play file
'<filename>' Internal data flow error.":

http://ff123.net/samples/1.flac (FLAC sample file)
http://audio-video.gnu.org/audio/richard_stallman-speech-girona-apr04-audio.ogg (Vorbis sample file)
http://audio-video.gnu.org/video/richard_stallman-speech-girona-apr04-272x176_theora_video.ogg (Theora sample file)

I've tried playing the files in rhythmbox and receive a similar message
on the command line.

I've subsequently enabled universe and installed xmms and xmms-flac and this can play all of the audio files mentioned perfectly.

Note: the original reporter indicated the bug was in package 'gstreamer'; however, that package was not published in Ubuntu.
