Probably a codec issue, I can see the same problem with AVC encoded

* nautilus - displays window with "Creating Properties window."  this
window will never finish, tough you can still browsing files.

Nautilus probably already knows it is a MPEG4 file ("file" will say "ISO Media, 
MPEG v4 system, version 2"),
properties window functionality is totally lost, 
Should  display something like "MPEG file, could not identify codec" but still 
complete the operation.

---------Other players/tools identified the file format -----------
* banshee/totem will not play the files.
* mediainfo
 MPEG-4 (Base Media/Version 2)
 1 Video stream: AVC
 1 Audio stream: AAC

* mplayer - played it:
Opening video decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg's libavcodec codec family

Mismatching header version 53.32.2
Selected video codec: [ffh264] vfm: ffmpeg (FFmpeg H.264)

  nautilus can't create properties window for files with unknown  codec

Status in Zeitgeist Data-Sources:

Bug description:
  The following has been tried on several mp4 video files
  (downloaded from youtube via the "download-helper" plugin).

  1. Nautilus:

  Right clicking on the file and going to "properties" results in a message:
  "Creating Properties Window..."      and nothing happens after that.

  PcmanFM on the other hand has no trouble displaying the file's


  2. Totem:

  Doesn't play the file. When running in terminal I get:

  (totem:5491): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: Read/writable property 'object' on 
class 'ZeitgeistDpPlugin' has type 'TotemObject' which is not exactly equal to 
the type 'GObject' of the property on the interface 'PeasActivatable'

  VLC on the other hand has no trouble playing the file.
