how to change totem backend

Hello everyone

I have totem included in FC4.
I don't know what backend it is being used but this does not work.
totem cannot play mpg file, that is bad enough.
Recently I installed xine-lib and I want totem to use xine-lib as backend, whatever it is using.
How could I do so.

And by the way.
I have download mplayer from the mirror site it show me.
But that package does not contain gmplayer.
I change to freshrpm to download, but the package on that site claim that I lack libraries.
Where else I can find mplayer binary package or how can I merge two package together.

The totem package you need to install is called totem-xine (along with the codecs mentioned above).
