Bug#403694: totem-xine: unable to play vorbis files

Package: totem-xine
Version: 2.16.4-2
Severity: important

the current version of totem-xine in etch no longer supports ogg vorbis audio.
i think this is a recent regression because i remember being able to
play vorbis without problem not too long ago.

download an example ogg file (for example from
http://www.lugradio.org/episodes/67), and try to play in totem-xine.
you will get an error that says "Audio codec 'vorbis' is not handled.
You might need to install additional plugins to be able to play some
types of movies."

thanks for the hard work.
