Could you please describe the expected behavior for this file? When I open the file I get an audio stream in totem, what is this file supposed to do differently?

The first 4 minutes should be skipped (as described by the 'clip-begin' tag). Now the stream just start from the very beginning.

Why the bug is set to invalid? Any more info is needed? Please let me know.

Walter, the bug is not invalid, just some shuffling around because it turns out this is a totem bug and not a gstreamer bug.
