Description of problem:
PackageKit failed to find a suitable codec plugin for .ogv
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

(Still can't play video with following list of packages)

Steps to Reproduce:

2. Be sure that PackageKit-* and totem are installed
3. remove libtheora using rpm -e --nodeps libtheora (to not remove totem and so on...)
4. try to open any .ogv video (one is attached)
Dialog asking to search for suitable plugin appeared:

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux major release. Product Management has requested further
review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential inclusion in a Red

I'm sure "rpm -e --nodeps libtheora" is _not_ the right way to test this; that assumes libtheora is the thing providing the codec (according to rpm), which it's not, it'll be a provide in the gstreamer-foo packages.
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **
Agreeing on that this is not a bug according to all dependencies that libtheora takes.
