Uuuuhhhhh, how about installing the GStreamer or xine development packages? Alternatively, you could install Totem using your package manager. Since you don't have you distro listed in your profile and you didn't tell us what distro you're using in your post, we'd only be guessing at the commands necessary to do either on your machine.
