Normally, users are not allowed to access the sound device unless they are in the proper group.
Check permissions on the audio device in /dev/snd to see what group can write to audio. It will probably be the group 'audio'
# ls -l /dev/snd
Add your login into that group via /etc/groups or whatever config platform you use.
relogin and .. bam!

general consensus seems to be that totem sucks.But totem-xine is great. See Fedora Core 5 Installation Notes (http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_5_installation_notes.html) for instructions.
