Some sites worked fine; others wouldn't work at all; some would work, but with frequent crashes or freezes or stuttering requiring reloading/restarting the browser.  To make a long story short, using yum, I completely uninstalled Totem and all its related files, installed mplayer-plugin (and its dependencies), and that cured 98% of the multimedia problems.  Sites that wouldn't work, now did. Flash was installed manually per Adobe's directions.

I have a bunch of Totem and Totem-compatible plugins, including one for 
Windows Media.

So you used mplayer-plugin as a replacement. Maybe I can do that--so 
long as I don't have to get rid of VLC.
