How is this a totem bug and not a samba bug?
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2008-07-22 15:38:49 UTC
Samba guys, Do you agree about assigning this bug to you? Seems a samba problem
Comment 3 Tiziano Müller (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-07-22 16:06:36 UTC
"Samba guyS" ... good joke, it's just me :-( but yes, you can reassign the bug to samba@g.o

Probably fixed in samba-3.0.31 which I'm going to commit soon.
Comment 4 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2008-07-22 16:09:23 UTC
OK, thanks for your work on samba then :-)
Comment 5 Archimedes Trajano 2008-08-07 17:25:46 UTC
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?
