are you using any PPAs? if its just one isolated player that is not playing
the files, i would either remove/rename the config file for the application
in my users /home, or test playing a file with the application as another
user or the guest user. this will tell you if its a problem with the actual
application, or the config file for the application in your users /home.

if you find you have a bug, you can use

what i like to do is lay out the *exact* circumstances for the issue, as
well as, in your case, sharing a common file that is not playing for you so
that another user, such as myself, can test and try and replicate the
issue. keep in mind, if you are using PPA's, make sure the files that are
being used are ubuntu files/applications and not files from the PPA's.. if
you use PPA's, you will report issues/bugs with those files/applications
provided by the PPA's with the PPA maintainers..

good luck and let us know what you figure out..
