Possible Multi-media Bug

Hi all,
I think I have found a multi-media bug in the latest suse software that I can replicate with identical results each time. When listening to the Totem player w/Gstreamer add-ons(and it can be a stream or static file), i.e. an mp3, I then go to any website via Firefox, now if there is a flash movie anywhere on this page it dead stops and never continues(this is with the new flash release, btw). Now if I close Totem, the page quickly recovers and continues to display normally and I can navigate as I choose. If I don’t close Totem the page never continues and I have to do a forced quit. I can replicate this each time with identical results.Everything else is just flawless, even gaming with openGL/3D. I even upgraded my Nvidia drivers(scary) and that went flawlessly. This is the only a/v issue I have with the box. Now it’s possible it’s my hardware, but everything is relatively new, and the Windows partitions(yuck) never show any issues, even when rendering 4gb video files. Just wanted to pass this along to you guys(thank you for all your hard work, btw). LMAO if this is an Adobe based issue.:shake:

Asus M2N-SLI(Nvidia NF560 chipset)
PNY Video(i.e. Nvidia GT 610)
Corsair DDR2-800 ram(8gb)
SB Audigy
LG/Hitachi bd-rom
various WD/Maxtor/Seagate hdd’s.
PSU tests very clean and stable within 1% of ratings.

Are you using PulseAudio? (you should by default, check in YaST->Hardware->Sound->Other->PulseAudio Configuration)
Flash-Player doesn’t support it and uses ALSA directly, which blocks all applications using PA and vice-versa.

Check that you have alsa-plugins-pulse installed, and maybe alsa-plugins-pulse-32bit as well (especially if you use 32bit apps like Skype).

If that doesn’t help, you might want to file a bug report at http://bugzilla.novell.com/ (same username/password as here).

Maybe try to disable PA (you have to logout/login afterwards) and see if you can reproduce your issue then as well. :wink:

I never saw such a problem, but then I’m not using Totem at all.
