I was just watching a Flash video about Ubuntu which I found amusing and 
decided to download a copy.  Found the videodownloader plugin for 
Firefox and downloaded it and tried to play it back with the default 
"Movie Player" Toten 2.16.2 (xine-lib 1.1.2  Ubuntu Edgy 6.10)  Playback 
is fine, but there is no sound.  Sound works ok in Firefox from the 
original and the youtube versions via the web.

Video can be found at:

or

There is a reference to the problem in debian
https://develop.participatoryculture.org/trac/democracy/ticket/3927
and a number of suggestions to use ffmpeg to convert it, but I would 
prefer to get Toten/Xine fixed if possible.
