When browsing an smb share and then opening video files from there, it never works properly. Selecting open with from the context menu of a video over smb and then selecting dragon player, the player comes up and only shows the beginning frame of video but never plays it. If I select totem movie player, then dolphin starts copying the whole file to /tmp before it plays.

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  

Expected Results:  

This is a dolphin bug because all of these things work perfectly when I test them in nautilus. The movies play fine over the network in both players.

I can reproduce the problem when using the gstreamer backend of phonon. No problem when using the vlc backend.
