Hi Liam,

I have this exact problem too! I gave up on easyubuntu because of this,
and I'm glad I did. I also found that when it does this odd behaviour it
somehow breaks mplayer, in that when you fire up mplayer you can't
switch to full screen.

I installed the codecs etc by following the wiki Restricted Formats
entry, and I'm glad I did, now Totem (using totem-xine) works an
absolute treat and can play ALL videos including .rmvb, also the preview
icons now work for all videos which I'm very chuffed about. I also got
sound previews in nautilus working too which were previously

I didn't find anyway to reverse the mess that the failed easyubuntu
left, but a reinstall makes everything OK.
