Accepted libgdata into lucid-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

I'm on the lucid-proposed libgdata6 package version 0.5.2-0ubuntu1 and it appears to now be working!

Same with me. I have updated the libgdata6 package and searching for videos on Movie Player is working fine again. Thanks a lot for sorting this out!

Pedro Villavicencio (pedro) wrote :

the proposed package indeed fixes the issue, haven't noticed any regressions so far, youtube works fantastic on totem again. Marking this as verification done, thanks all for the hard work.
