I have run across a bit of a problem with Totem and running some

Install mplayer. Run it from the command line, "mplayer file.avi", it

"Totem could not play 'file:///file name'.
You do not have a decoder installed to handle this file. You might
need to install the necessary plugins."
As others can run this file I assume the file itself is okay.
using mplayer I was able to view the video.
