GNOME desktop movie player based on GStreamer

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

Totem is a movie player for the GNOME desktop. Through use of the GStreamer backend many popular file and streaming formats are supported including: MPEG audio and video (MP3/MPV), Ogg, AVI, ASF, MOV, WMV, QuickTime, and more. Playing of DVD and VCD media is also possible. Although primarily intended as a movie player, Totem can also play many audio formats. For additional documentation on interactive use of Totem select the Help menu option. The menus allow access to some features not avail‐ able through keybindings or command-line options.
