I'm coming in late on this thread, but to play that, I installed
totem-mozplug (you may have to remove VLC before you can get mozplug
to play the embedded video). FWIW, I have these Gstreamer RPMS
installed:
[sam samlap ~]$ rpm -qa gstreamer*
gstreamer-plugins-ugly-0.10.12-1.fc11.x86_64
gstreamer-ffmpeg-0.10.7-2.fc11.1.x86_64
gstreamer-plugins-good-0.10.15-3.fc11.x86_64
gstreamer-python-0.10.15-1.fc11.x86_64
gstreamer-plugins-bad-0.10.13-3.fc11.x86_64
gstreamer-plugins-flumpegdemux-0.10.15-6.fc11.x86_64
gstreamer-plugins-base-0.10.23-3.fc11.x86_64
gstreamer-0.10.23-2.fc11.x86_64
gstreamer-tools-0.10.23-2.fc11.x86_64
gstreamer-plugins-schroedinger-1.0.7-1.fc11.x86_64
gstreamer-plugins-bad-extras-0.10.13-3.fc11.x86_64

It then "plays" in Totem, but I don't think you'll get the effect you
want. It looks to me like the video has Quicktime controls so that you
can rotate and zoom the image - so it's not really supposed to "play"
as such and to be honest I don't think you'll get the desired affect
without Quicktime.
