Bug Description

I really like that Totem now has a playlist as it means that I can finally replace xmms to play my .m3u files.

I have manually deleted a few of the files in the .m3u playlist and every time that I hit one of these in Totem, the music stops and an error message is displayed. This is sensible behaviour if Totem is only being called to play one file, but if it is playing a playlist it should just skip over files that are no longer at the location specified.

Winamp, Xmms and every other player I have used with a playlist skips over missing files.

wow, what an old bug. 4 years now and still annoying. could someone kick their buts pls?

right now totem came to a halt with 4 error dialog boxes: "location not found". nice, but what location?
there are about 2000 possible candidates. and why on earth is totem not picking one of the remaining
1996 locations?
