This is what I was thinking of adding "Totem Backend" to Preferences,
that dialog would be it. If we need a quick description, that can be
done too underneath the current selection:

"The gstreamer backend is the Fedora default and uses gstreamer codecs
to play multimedia files."

"The xine backend uses the xine codecs to play multimedia files. The
xine backend, among other things, support DVD menus."
