does not work on ftp gnome-vfs(?) areas

Bug #152004 reported by Ian Jackson on 2007-10-12
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-vfs2 (Ubuntu)
totem (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: totem

I have some music .oggs available for anonymous ftp on my house network.

I used Places / Connect to server / Public FTP to connect to the server and used the mouse to browse to a relevant directory.

Then I double-clicked on one of the .oggs. Totem opened and appeared to be trying to play, but no music came out. I dragged another file (with left mouse button held down) into the totem window and it added it to the playlist. I was able to rearrange the playlist but still no sound came out.

After a bit more fiddling I got an error dialogue
    An error occurred
    Could not perform seek on resource.

I see the same behaviour with totem, and other gnomevfs apps, e.g

1) Browse to ftp share in nautilus
2) Open file in gedit
3) File unable to open

I dont' reprocuce this bug on gutsy. I am able to gedit a ftp file and to play a ogg file over ftp with totem.
Ftp over gnomevfs seems to support seek.

Do you still have this bug ?
