I have Fedora 18 64 bit installed. I cannot get Totem or VLC player to work. I have installed the appropriate codecs. When i try to launch a dvd, the player disappears. I tried launching from the command line and got these errors:
(totem:6355): Grilo-WARNING **: [registry] grl-registry.c:330: Failed to initialize plugin: '/usr/lib64/grilo-0.2/libgrlflickr.so'

and for VLC
VLC media player 2.0.5 Twoflower (revision 2.0.5-0-g1661b7d)

Fedora reports a problem on boot. A did a bit of research on the problem and found a fix that involved installing gst-libav
I did a search for 'gst-liba'v but could not find a single package. However, i did find a package gstreamer 1.0 libav-based-plu-ins which was already installed. I assume that this is the correct package.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but with no luck.
On a separate note, even though I have totem set as the default player for DVDs , it does not auto load on DVD inserion. I set totem as the default in SYSTEM SETTINGS / DETAILS. Is there anything else i need to do.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
