I'm using the totem with the xine backend on x86 and the gstreamer
backend on x86_64. The gstreamer doesn't seem to have support for a
large number of video codecs right now. There is a plugin that is
supposed to beable to use the mplayer codec files with gsteramer, but I
had no luck with it. Atleast with the xine backend you're still able to
use all of those codecs.
