Totem loses sound when seeking or when switching language
Binary package hint: totem
Totem Player (using gstreamer) loses sound when changing audio track.
* .mkv movies (which Nautilus reports as 'Matroska' something or other I think).
* commercial DVD
When starting Totem (the gstreamer variant that is) with the video, it will play it okay, but with some default language selected. When I change the language, sound stops, even though the video keeps playing.
The same thing happens when seeking in the movie (.mkv, not confirmed on DVD), whether it is using the keyboard or the scroll wheel or dragging the position slider (BTW, isn't there supposed to be a "Seek To: hh:mm:ss" dialog available somewhere? I can't find it).
Since Totem often (but strangely, not always) picks the wrong language for audio and I like to skip back or forth now and then, this makes it rather useless in playing .mkv or DVD movies.
HOW TO REPRODUCE:
Play a DVD movie, go to Sound -> Languages and change track. You'll then notice there's no more sound while movie keeps playing.
