Description Dave Knight 2005-07-27 14:36:17 EDT
Description of problem:
Attempts to "play" a foo.mpeg file result in an error dialog containing:

   Totem could not play 'file:///home/dmk/russian_hidden_camera.mpeg'.

   There were no decoders found to handle the stream in file
"file:///home/dmk/russian_hidden_camera.mpeg", you might need to install the
corresponding plugins

Unfortunately, I could find no "corresponding plugins available anywhere.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt to open a  .mpeg movie file.
Actual results:

   error dialog displayed

Expected results:
   mpeg movie (with both video & sound) should be played in totem "screen"

Additional info:

mpeg isn't supported or shipped in Fedora because of patents.

You can go to totem's homepage http://www.gnome.org/projects/totem/ for more
information on getting mpeg and other format to work with totem.  Look under the
codec heading.
