Right, same here, but vlc plays the same vcd disk fine.

totem tells me there is no plugin to handle that kind of disk, but
doesn't suggest what if any plugin I need to install to make it work.

So to me if one app will play the media fine, I'll stick to it; there
doesn't seem to be any compelling reason to install totem media codec
files if vlc or gxine or mplayer will do the job.
