[Bug 55132] Wav files won't play out-of-the-box on Dapper PPC

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: totem


On a basic PPC installation of Dapper, we can't seem to play any audio
files at all.

The default application for playing wav files is totem.

If we double click on a wav file, totem says:
"You do not have a decoder installed to handle this file. You might need to install the necessary plugins."

The mplayer plugin plays the file perfectly, so the file is ok.  AFAIK,
the wav format is not under any particularly licensing restriction so I
fail to see why this won't work out of the box.


** Affects: totem (Ubuntu)
