One inaccurate way to see what codecs Totem/GStreamer thinks are 
available is enter about:plugins in Browse.

As says,
Release 8.2.0 uses an old backported version of GStreamer, so most web 
guides to installing additional codec support will not work

A few months ago the wiki was full of approaches to adding codecs from 
livna and fusion and whatever that *don't work* on release 8.2.0.  If 
you see such and it doesn't work, flag it, e.g. ": These steps don't 
work with release [[8.2.0]] -- ~~~~"

I see around comment 27 has a possible 
workaround for adding MP3 support to GStreamer/Totem/Browse.  If you try 
it, use the Talk:GStreamer page for your experience.
