I just tested this file with current oggplay from svn, and it plays ok
here. The issue was probably fixed in oggplay during the last month.
Of course it could be due to something specific to your system --
Denis, could you test the same file again with current oggplay?
As for the warnings from ogginfo, they are warning about gaps in the
page sequence numbers corresponding to the ogg pages which have been
removed from the file. For a while I was worried that libogg was
rejecting the pages, which would mean that a chopper would have to
renumber the pages (and thus recalculate all the checksums). However
this doesn't seem to be the case.
That file also plays ok for me in gstreamer (totem) and xine.
