Description of problem:
Totem will not work
When I try to play a DVD movie I get the following response
Totem cannot play this type of media
(tmw_aspect_ratio_square_menu_item) because you do not have the
appropriate plugins to handle it.
Please install the necessary plugins and restart Totem to be able to
play this media.
When I try to play an *wmv file from an attached e-mail file I receive
Totem could not play
Failed to open; reason unknown
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Trying to play any DVD
2.Trying to open a wmv file
DVD's and wmv are patent encumbered and are not supported in Fedora
Core. You will need to search for the plugins to play these formats.
The totem homepage should help you with this.
