Just a note.

There is some problems playing the stream at:
http://mirror.fluendo.com/cortado/
Where totem (actually gnome-vfs) seems to hang. This is really a server-
side bug. Its responding with the whole stream as body to a HEAD or
PROPFIND request (instead of nothing), so gnome-vfs proceeds to download
the whole thing.

The Fluendo people have fixed their server, but can't update the live
machine in a while (the fix needs testing). 

http://www.theora.org/ seems to have some other test files.
