You should be happy that sound has not yet vanished with a system update.

You can find a lot of such stories on Ubuntu forum.

:lol: so there is no solution for this? Just wait for some update?? What do you think about? for example: I have made a search for "wonder woman", and selected the second snapshot that is "wonder woman mix" and totem gave me the following url and error: Totem incapaz de reproduzir 'http://www.youtube.com/get_video?video_ ... 53D&fmt=18'.
translation: Totem incapaz de reproduzir -> totem can not play
incapaz de encontrar o filme especificado -> cannot find the speciied movie

very strange... i think that is a malformed url... can I edit the youtube script for totem???

I have a universal solution to such problems.
And I was asked many times here not to tell anything :D

O.K. It is here:

Install another Mint in dual boot and try it, if you want.

i think that solution doesnt apply for me because everything on my laptop works (speaking of multimedia codecs and audio) the only thing that stopped working is the youtube plugin in totem... I have tried to reinstall it but didnt worked :cry:

Generally speaking, the playback of Totem (video and audio) depends on gstreamer

Run on Terminal:

gstreamer-properties

this should produce a GUI with settings

Another magic command is this:

gconf-editor

It will also produce a GUI
open "apps" and you will find Totem there.

What version of Mint do you use? I use Mint 7 on two desktops and one laptop and no issue with You Tube and Totem.
I also copy the flash movie that shows up in the temp file and store it on my PC in case I want a copy. My way.

Can you play other videos (on hard disk) with Totem?

Can you give a link to that video?
I can try it with Totem.
And others too.

this is the url that totem created by doing a search for "wonder woman" and selected the second result for me is the "Wonder woman - wonder girl spin transformation"

but the result (the error) is the same in all my searchs

I tried to open this link with Totem on Ubuntu 9.04 (OSS4)

I got this:

An Error Occured:
Could not open location; you might not have permission to open the file.

Perhaps, it was a security update :D

I have these files on Ubuntu 9.04:

/usr/lib/totem/plugins/youtube/youtube.py
/usr/lib/totem/plugins/youtube/youtube.pyc
/usr/lib/totem/plugins/youtube/youtube.totem-plugin
/usr/lib/totem/plugins/youtube/youtube.ui

I can compress the folder "youtube" and send by e-mail.
I do not know how to attach files in this forum.

I use Mint 7 Gnome. Below is what I get when I go to the link. Mostly a blank page with Done in the lower left. I use Firefox 3.0.14.
