Excellent program! Installation was smooth and straightforward. No issues with codecs or configuration like other media players. Was able to use instantly after download from Mint software centre.

quick & easy simple player, not too memory-hungry. if you want more, take your vlc and blow it up with extensions. period.

Terribly uncomfortable. We need to give more space for video

I don't see why mint-meta-codecs has to depend on it

Totem worked fine in Mint15 playing all video files with the two clutter additions to environment enabled. However on Mint17 it has a tearing problem with the top inch of the screen when playing fullscreen videos. The SMPlayer and VLC both work perfectly without any tearing in Mint17. Also Totem overlays are way too big - Huge white blobs. SMPlayer is now my deafault player.

1. Pressing "Movie-Preferencies" menu is switching to display preferencies of mp3 in the right pane but there is no possibility to switch pane back to display songs list. 2. When I press on mp3 in file manager totem is lanched but not playing mp3 some times. And do it after some "hands moves" for example, after selecting "Movie-Properties" menu item...

Obsolete, bleak features, stability issues. Replace it with VLC.

No quickseek

Excluded quickseeking a deal breaker for me. Totem also uses 2-4 times the cpu resources as VLC although VLC does use about 50% more ram. Even on a limited ram machine I still choose VLC.
