Question Totem will not play avi video

When I play a avi file with Totem, i get the music but no video. I think I may need gstreamer-plugins-bad. If that is the correct plugin, how can i check to see if i already have it? If not, is the command yum install gstreamer-plugins-bad?


Thank you

Assuming you have Livna or another third party repo:

http://rpm.livna.org/rlowiki/UsingLivna

Try searching for everything gstreamer:

yum search *gstreamer*

then pick out ALL the plugins, once installed they should get picked up, if not just run the following in a terminal as a regular user not root:

rm -rf .gstreamer-0.10
gst-inspect-0.10

That should show you everything gstreamer is setup to handle.

I ran yum search *gstreamer* and it gave me several packages including plugins and development plugins, but most of them said core, which makes me think i already have them. So i ran yum install gstreamer-plugins-ugly.i386 and yum install gstreamer-plugins-bad.i386

I already had one, and i htink it installed the other. But what about plugins-nonfree?
Thanks

When you run a search it will show you all the packages with the ones you have installed at the bottom of the list. Trying to install something that's already installed won't cause you any problems. It will just say "nothing to do". I would just install all of them:

yum install gstreamer-ffmpeg gstreamer-plugins*

That should pull in all of them, including some devel files that you won't need, you can try excluding those and see if it works:

yum --exclude=gstreamer-plugins-*-devel* install gstreamer-ffmpeg gstreamer-plugins*

I don't think there's any "non-free" gstreamer packages, those are probably for other apps and you'll probably want those too dependng on which apps you use.

Even if you use vlc finding the right plugins is worthwhile because totem creates the video preview icons in nautilus - I like those.
