totem youtube plugin does not play; "you might not have permission"

Asked by Matthew McGowan

Binary package hint: totem

I receive an error while trying to playback videos retrieved by the totem youtube plugin.

This is the error:
Could not open location: you might not have permission to open the file.

Here is the terminal output, generated by the error:
matthew@matthew-desktop:~/Pictures$ totem
