I think that for inclusion in Fedora, the primary basis for consideration should be performance on media that we support in Fedora. That means that available third-party support for e.g. Windows Media or RealVideo is interesting, but not important for inclusion. The main interesting video codec we ship is Theora, so I played with totem and some Theora videos, and compared it to HelixPlayer a bit. Totem seemed to work quite well on simple playback, going fullscreen, etc. The main thing that seemed a bit flaky was seeking. I got an error when seeking back to the beginning of a video, which I suspect is this bug: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=150061 The a/v synchronization after seeking didn't seem quite as good as HelixPlayer's, but it was relatively minor, I certainly imagine it could be fixed. Overall it looks like Totem+GStreamer is shaping up to be a very good video player. Given its tight GNOME integration and basis on Fedora's current media framework, I think it's definitely worthy of inclusion in FC3. Since I happened to get all the other media packages, I'll take up maintaining it if no one objects.
