One inaccurate way to see what codecs Totem/GStreamer thinks are
available is enter about:plugins in Browse.
As http://wiki.laptop.org/go/GStreamer#Adding_codecs 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 http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/8982 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.
