Bug Description

I was trying to open a file from:
http://www.allabout-sp.net/?p=season9/903

The first time I tried to open the movie I got a nice popup about missing codecs so I should install one. I installed FFmpeg plugin for GStreamer, after doing so I got the error mentioned in the title.

Funny thing is that I have another Gutsy install in which it does work, the installation that has the error is about 4 hours old so no weird things done to this one (except modifying acpi_cpufreq.ko).

I just found out that the file is loaded through some sort of swf file so maybe it's more related to flash rather then totem.

I also got the same message but in a different setting. I was trying the YouTube plugin in Totem and picked a random video (http://www.youtube.com/v/EqBD_rmIU4A). The error occurred when Totem got to that item in the playlist. I tried gst-launch and got pretty much the same as above:
