Bug Description

Binary package hint: totem

For video sites that play a sequence of videos using "quicktime" (including mp4), the sequence is described using an embed tag with qtnext attributes. For example:

<EMBED SRC="nameof.mov" WIDTH="200" HEIGHT="240"
       QTNEXT1="<http://www.apple.com/quicktime/movies/sample.mov> T<myself>"
       QTNEXT2="<rtsp://www.apple.com/quicktime/movies/sample.mov> T<myself>"
       QTNEXT3="<URL> T<myself>"
       QTNEXT4="GOTO0" >

Unfortunately, totem's plugin ignores the qtnext tag; totem will play only the first movie.

Thank you for your bug. What version of Ubuntu do you use? Do you have a website example for that?

I set up an example page at http://web.hawkesnest.net/users/hawke/test.html

Quicktime on Windows sometimes has some problems with the actual video encoding, but it will play all 6 videos in turn. Totem plays the first video with no trouble, but then ignores the QTNEXT attributes and so never goes on to the next video.
