Bug Description

I know that Warty's default totem cannot play non-free audio encodings, but:

1. Click on a "Real Audio" link (in my case, the one from
http://esl.about.com/library/listening/blIPAvowels.htm which points to
http://esl.about.com/library/media/audio/IPAvowel.ram) in Mozilla Firefox

2. Firefox asks me if I want to open it it totem

3. totem opens

4. totem gives "An error occured. There is no element present to handle the
stream's mime type text/uri-list"

From a gnome-terminal:

1. $ totem IPAvowel.ram

2. See 3 above

3. See 4 above

This is an incomprehensible error message when the error is actually "totem
cannot play Real Audio files".

the messages should be clear with the current version, I'm closing the bug. Feel
free to reopen if that's still an issue for you.
