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
the following:

Totem could not play
Failed to open; reason unknown

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.

Sorry for the post!!

I had already looked at their web site for plugins but could not find
what was needed.  I sent a note to their contact and will wait on
their reply.
