[Mageia-discuss] Is Totem the worst video player?

As usual, I have burned a DVD and made an install of Mageia 3 alpha3.
No problem but some improvements could be useful.

Then, I have tried to read some various videos without any success with the 
default player. See https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8088

It is better with Dragon except than 16/9 videos are displayed at 4/3 ratio
and some videos prefer to stop after few seconds.

I have installed vlc which works very well for each type of video.
IMO, vlc must be the default player when installed, Dragon, the second choice 
and totem, the last... or removed.
