Bug#602163: totem: Won't play videos if another "player" also present in an iceweasel tab

Package: totem
Version: 2.30.2-5
Severity: normal


I'm facing a situation where totem and iceweasel semm to be conflicting somehow on video playback.

Whenever I've openend a tab in iceweasel which contains a video player like JWPlayer (for instance, this URL : http://videos2010.rmll.info/acceleration-du-developpement-d-application-avec-quickly.html), and played bits of that video in iceweasel, then, when I open a video withing totem, it won't play, staying "stuck" in paused mode even if I click on the play button.

If I close the iceweasel tab, then I can play again the video.

I tried to use totem --debug to try and get a hint on what's wrong with no luck :-(

Thanks in advance for any help in solving this issue.

Best regards,
