Hi Khurshid,

I fired up a Wily VM to confirm, and as Tim mentioned earlier the 
preferences options are under the app menu:

   Installed: 3.16.4-0ubuntu2
   Candidate: 3.16.4-0ubuntu2
   Version table:
  *** 3.16.4-0ubuntu2 0
         500 wily/main amd64 Packages
         100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

And all the options are available:

Perhaps you could remove and purge totem (apt-get purge totem) and then 
reinstall and see what happens?

All the best,
