Look, I understand that you guys prefer i18n'ed stuffies all over the
place, but we can't do that between now and june 9th (Gnome-2.4

The request was to make proper UI error messages, and so we did. Just
make a nice error dialog in Totem that says display_dialog(_("An error
occurred: %s"), gstreamer_error);. It won't be 100% localized, but
there's no way you'll get that anyway. Xine doesn't do that either.
It'll be understandable that something went wrong, and it'll work just

On the long run, we will probably i18n'ize GStreamer. Thomas already
sent an email about it to our developers' list, and it makes sense.
However, we simply cannot do that in one week.
