Hey All,

Totem has stopped playing .wmv files recently.  I don't know exactly 
when this happened, but I know I've played .wmv files not too very long 
ago.  I've got 372 .wmv files all of which I've played at one time.

When I try to launch any one of the .wmv files from file manager totem 
pops up but the controls are not functional.

If I start totem from a terminal there is no feedback:
[mlapier at mushroom Media]$ totem myfile.wmv

When I try to open a .wmv file using Movie/Open the controls are not 
functional.

[mlapier at mushroom Media]$ cd /usr/bin/
[mlapier at mushroom bin]$ ls | grep gst-

Do you need to see the output of gst-feedback-0.10?  It's quite lengthy.
