On a (up to date) Fedora 33 Workstation, I want to play a file located on a SMB share (video or music) with Totem (Gnome Videos app).
When I do so, I get the following error (terminal output):
plugin: gstreamer|1.0|totem|Source protocole SMB|urisource-smb (Source protocole SMB)
I think I have all required packages:
but it does not work. I have all packages required to play the file format (codecs installed from rpmfusion).
Is there anything I miss ? It works fine with mpv.
Thank in advance for any pointer.
I searched for your error and wonder if you have all the gstreamer1* packages from rpmfusion installed. There was a bug reported in 2007 that totem had the same smb error because it needed a gstreamer package (plugin) for the smb protocol to function.
You might consider reporting this as a bug against totem if you install the gstreamer packages and the error is solved. It would seem a missing dependency in that case.
Thanks for your answer.
I think I have the packages needed by Totem:
# dnf --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo rpmfusion* list installed | grep gstreamer

Do I miss something ? I’ll leave this topic open a few more days with the hope to get feedback from this community. If every packages I need is installed, I’ll, indeed, open a bug report.
Try to open a file over SFTP if possible.
It would be good to know whether the issue is relevant for other VFS.
When I tried over SFTP, it suddently worked
So I guess that, after a reboot, one of the packages I installed (see list above) fixed the problem. Unless I got a fix via an update in the meantime.
