Okay okay relax everybody :D

Humm, sorry if I must ask another question, what is the Totem's error message? 
And do you have any problem with the previous episode of the film (as I 
notice it was the 12th episode). Maybe the file was corrupt or broken?

If you're using Dapper and xine, have you installed libxine-extracodecs (it's 
on universe repository I think) ?

Last one, try using MPlayer :p
