Thank you for your bug. Does it happen every time you try to open this video? What videocard and driver do you use?

It happens every time. Here's the output from PCI devices in hardinfo

As one can see its an Intel 845G/GL/GE/PE integrated chipset.

The driver I use is the old 'i810' driver. The newer driver has problems with the i845 chipset series I believe.

does it happen if you play the video using xine for example?

I don't have that video anymore but it played fine in one of the other players that much I remember as I don't have the .mkv file anymore hence marking it as invalid.

Does it happen with an another video?

my issue is I don't know any specific site which uses .mkv, if somebody knows I'll then download stuff from there, test out & let you guys know.

Totem crashes playing a video (not .mkv), sometimes crashes randomly, in
gnome, updating from feisty changing repositories feisty to gutsy, and
installing codecs with automatix.

Existen 100 tipos de personas: las que saben binarios, las que no saben
binarios, las que creen que saben pero no saben, y las que dicen que no
saben pero saben.

automatix is not supported and known to create issues, does it happen on a system where it has not been used?

Still an issue with latest Gutsy?

Closing this report for now, feel free to reopen it if you can reproduce it with Gutsy, thanks you!.

The same bug at Intrepid Ibex (Linux vm-desktop 2.6.26-5-generic #1 SMP Fri Aug 15 13:54:22 UTC 2008 x86_64 GNU/Linux) whether to open any file (DV, avi, MPEG-2, audio files...), whether to use gstreamer-based totem or Xine...

It seems not to be bug of totem, because VLC and Mplayer also crashed on opening.
