Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but this appears to be a "regular" (non-security) bug. I have unmarked it as a security issue since this bug does not show evidence of allowing attackers to cross privilege boundaries nor directly cause loss of data/privacy. Please feel free to report any other bugs you may find.

The mkv seeking problem should be fixed in GStreamer Good Plug-ins 0.10.24. From the release notes:

# 620358 : [matroskademux] Sorenson Squish WebM output seeking issues
# 620743 : matroskademux: refactor delta unit handling
# 619485 : matroskademux: skip buffers before a late keyframe (QoS)

Those are GNOME bug numbers. The corresponding bug reports are at:

Please test with the Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat" alpha 3 Live CD. After booting, and before testing, please use Synaptic Package Manager to upgrade Totem and the gstreamer packages, in particular the update of gstreamer0.10-plugins-good to 0.10.24.3-1ubuntu1

There is another mkv seeking fix in GStreamer Good Plug-ins 0.10.25. From the release notes:

Features of this release:

# seeking in matroska and webm files that don't have an index
# matroskademux: support seeking in local files even if they don't have an index
# 617368 : [matroska] Implement push-mode seeking and non-cue seeking

That last one has a GNOME bug number - the corresponding bug report is at:

https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=617368

They don't seem to have included the bug reference (if there was one) for the local file case.

Please test with the Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat" beta CD. After booting, and before testing, please use Synaptic Package Manager to upgrade Totem and the gstreamer packages, in particular the update of gstreamer0.10-plugins-good to 0.10.25-4ubuntu1

Changed in alsa-driver (Ubuntu):
status: New → Incomplete
