NAME

       totem - GNOME-desktop movie player based on the xine backend


SYNOPSIS

       totem [option...] [filenames|URI]


DESCRIPTION

       totem is a movie player for the GNOME desktop.  Through use of the xine
       backend many popular file and streaming formats are  supported  includ-
       ing:  MPEG  audio  and video (MP3/MPV), Ogg, AVI, ASF, MOV, WMV, Quick-
       time, and more.  Playing of DVD and VCD media is  usually  possible  if
       you have the appropriate drive.  Although primarily intended as a movie
       player, totem can also play many audio formats.

       For additional documentation on interactive use  of  totem  select  the
       Help  menu  option.  The menus allow access to some features not avail-
       able through keybindings or command-line options.
