Post exactly the command line with which you invoked mplayer, and the
output messages it generated, there is usually a lot of good info what
went wrong. Both VLC and mplayer use ffmpeg (while Totem uses
gstreamer instead), so codecs should not be a problem if VLC plays
properly. My guess is that mplayer just needs to be invoked properly,
GUIs usually suck at translating to correct cli options...

And my advice is to forget Totem. VLC and mplayer are more than
enough, along with Xine. Totem is there only because it isn't patent
