The command is just "totem". Do you have the win32 codecs installed. If not download them from the mplayer website and copy them to /usr/lib/win32. It's difficult to know what the exact error is when the error shows up as being "unknown". Have you tried playing other file types.

Ok, you downloaded an rpm and it's installed differently. Install it as root as follows,
#rpm -Uvh w32codec-0.52-1.i386.rpm
