> Used Record-81 to create an audio clip. Went to Journal entry for that audo clip, used "Resume with Etoys" to launch Etoys to playback that clip.  Etoys showed me a menu (Etoysaud1.png) with three entries: "sound file", "play in GStreamer player", "open".  It is not clear to the user what will happen when he chooses.
> When I chose "sound file", Etoys played back the recorded audio clip.
> But when I chose "open" or "play in GStreamer player", Etoys told me (Etoysaud2.png) that it could not open the file associated with the OLPC Journal entry.
> As a user, I do not understand why Etoys gives me three choices, with only one of them actually working.
> Attached: System dump after Etoys activity was closed, after it had failed to open the clip when the "play in GStreamer player" option was chosen;  Audio clip that Etoys was trying to play;  Screenshot of choice given to user by Etoys, and result of choosing "play in GStreamer player".
