Bug Description

When I listen to BBC radio, the fast-forward and volume buttons don't work. They use javascript. Also when a stream is returned to a popup appears asking if I want to continue playback from where I left off, but pressing "yes" doesn't do so. When said buttons are pressed variations of the four following lines appear in the terminal:

WARNING: Site uses unimplemented function 'totemIComplexPlayer::GetLength'
WARNING: Site uses unimplemented function 'totemIComplexPlayer::GetPosition'
WARNING: Site uses unimplemented function 'totemIComplexPlayer::GetBandwidthAverage'
WARNING: Site uses unimplemented function 'totemIComplexPlayer::CanStop'

This happens all over the BBC radio site, for example at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/radio3_aod.shtml?radio3/latejunction_wed Note that this site may only be accessible to UK IPs, I'm not sure.

P.S. This is using the latest Hardy.

I've seen this too; running firefox from the command line results in this output:

The BBC have totally changed their web radio player, now it's the iPlayer. I've installed a whole bunch of crud (including Real Player 11) so can't tell if this bug is still valid or not. There's been no action on it for ages so perhaps it's not an issue any more?

Changed in gst-plugins-ugly0.10:
status: New → Invalid
Changed in totem:
