You don't need to do an exhaustive search on bugzilla. You just need
to search against the component that's causing issues. eg totem media
player. Generally most components will have < 10 bugs so its easy to
see if its an issue for the component.

Well, firstly if they're statically compiled applications that aren't
shipped in Fedora there's no point filing bugs in Fedora about them as
they aren't supported. But if your going to have an attitude of its a
waste of your time, I won't waste my time trying to get them to work

I can check the record activity but as mentioned before issues with
mplayer and mp3 codecs will need to be reported to where ever you get
