Fedora 6 totem problems

I am using Fedora 6.

When I try to watch a movie DVD with Totem I get a dialog box that says:

"Totem cannot play this type of media(DVD) because you do not have the appropriate plugins to handle it. please install the necessary plugins and restart Totem to be able to play this media"

How do I determine what plugins are needed?
Where do I get them?
How do I install them?

Again, I am using Fedora 6.
