NAME
       Totem - GNOME desktop movie player based on GStreamer

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

DESCRIPTION
       Totem  is  a  movie  player  for the GNOME desktop.  Through use of the
       GStreamer backend many popular file and streaming formats are supported
       including:  MPEG  audio  and  video (MP3/MPV), Ogg, AVI, ASF, MOV, WMV,
       QuickTime, and more.  Playing of DVD and VCD media  is  also  possible.
       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.

OPTIONS
       -?, --help
              Output a longer help  message  then  quit.   (Any  discrepancies
              between  this  man page and the output of totem --help should be
              reported as a documentation bug.)

       --version
              Output version information then quit.

       The following options command an already-running instance of  Totem  to
       do something; they are useful for remote-control scripting. If Totem is
       not already running, these commands will launch a new instance of Totem
       but will not do anything further.

              Tell an already-running instance of Totem to toggle between play
              and pause.

              if already playing)

       --pause
              Tell  an  already-running  instance  of  Totem  to pause (has no
              effect if already paused)

       --next Tell an already-running instance of Totem to skip  to  the  next
              movie or chapter in the playlist.

       --previous
              Tell  an already-running instance of Totem to return to the pre-
              vious movie or chapter in the playlist.

       --seek-fwd
              Tell an already-running instance of Totem to  seek  forwards  15
              seconds in the current movie.

       --seek-bwd
              Tell  an  already-running instance of Totem to seek backwards 15
              seconds in the current movie.

              8%.

              muted and unmuted audio.

              mode.
