How is this a totem bug and not a samba bug?
Samba guys, Do you agree about assigning this bug to you? Seems a samba problem
"Samba guyS" ... good joke, it's just me :-( but yes, you can reassign the bug to firstname.lastname@example.org
Probably fixed in samba-3.0.31 which I'm going to commit soon.
OK, thanks for your work on samba then :-)
As a temporary work around, you can use fusesmb to mount it to view the movie in totem.
Aurelien, could you please test with the latest Samba and confirm that it is fixed?
