Totem 2.27 uses the CPU at a 100% and the movies have been played at a very slow speed.

Bug Description

Binary package hint: totem

I'm using Karmic. The file types that give me the problem are "avi" and "wmv", but those are the only movie file types that I have and that's why I can't say if the bug will appear with playing other files.

ProblemType: Bug
Architecture: i386
Date: Fri Jul 31 01:38:33 2009
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 9.10
ExecutablePath: /usr/bin/totem
Package: totem 2.27.2-0ubuntu1
ProcVersionSignature: Ubuntu 2.6.31-4.23-generic
SourcePackage: totem
Uname: Linux 2.6.31-4-generic i686

Also if I reboot with the 2.6.28-14 kernel the problem disappears.

it appears that Xv doesn't get initialized on my system, so this is not a bug in Totem itself.
I'm attaching my xorg.0.log and lspci -vvnn so to diagnose the problem.
