Thank you, I just installed Realplayer and it works fine. However, there are also streams/videos which are Quicktime/Windows Media. So, back to the original question, is there a way to get the plugin, mozilla-totem-xine, working so that I can play Quicktime/Windows Media? I prefer to use Totem instead of Kaffeine.

Ok, I shall explain what I said in my first post in detail:
The standard Totem that is already installed with FC3 can't play a lot of video file formats, and if you want to fix that you will have to remove Totem and then you have to install totem-xine, which is based on Xine so that it can play pratically everything (details on supported formats: http://xinehq.de/index.php/features
). What you need to do is the following:
1. Open the Applications menu -> System Settings -> Add/Remove Applications -> Sound & Video -> uncheck "totem"
2. Go to http://www.fedorafaq.org/#installsoftware
and follow the two steps described there to install the yum.conf.
3. Open a terminal, Applications menu -> System Tools -> Terminal
4. Become root, type: su -
5. Type: yum --enablerepo=freshrpms install totem-xine mozilla-totem-xine
6. Wait for the installation to finish, and now you should have Totem installed again, and it should be able to play practically everything.
