Worked fine in f12, also plays fine in VLC. Distortion appears to affect all applicaitons using gstreamer (totem, banshee, ...).

The example video plays fine for me. I'm suspecting this is a video driver issue. To make sure:
1) What GPU and Xorg drivers are you using?
2) Can you change the Gconf key /system/gstreamer/0.10/default/videosink to "ximagesink" (without quotes) and see if that makes it work? (Don't forget to change it back again, it's slower.)

Example screenshot

GPU is a Intel GM45 Express Chipset, using
mesa-libGL-7.8.1-6.fc13.x86_64
mesa-libGLU-7.8.1-6.fc13.x86_64
xorg-x11-server-common-1.8.0-12.fc13.x86_64
xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.11.0-4.fc13.x86_64
libdrm-2.4.20-1.fc13.x86_64
libdrm-devel-2.4.20-1.fc13.x86_64
xorg-x11-server-Xorg-1.8.0-12.fc13.x86_64
mesa-dri-drivers-7.8.1-6.fc13.x86_64
mesa-libGL-devel-7.8.1-6.fc13.x86_64
xorg-x11-server-utils-7.4-16.fc13.x86_64
mesa-libGLU-devel-7.8.1-6.fc13.x86_64

Works fine with ximagesink. Attached screenshot shows problem.

This does indeed look like driver issue, so I'll assign this to them.
I do wonder why VLC works though...

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful in our diagnosis of this issue.

dmesg

Attaching requested files (have no custom xorg.conf), which were obtained after a reboot + playing an affected video file with debug messages enabled.

As a side note, just noticed that also VLC is affected with a DivX MPEG-4 Version 5 AVI.
