Hello, somebody please help me repairing Totem on 10.04, I've damaged it on an online friend's system. Quick history:

OP installed VLC from the n-muench/vlc2 PPA which also installed libav* (libavformat52, ...) stuff version 0.6.2 Later he tried to install Frostwire which depends on mplayer which depends on libav* 0.5.1 and wasn't installable. Since I have mplayer, libav* 0.5.1 and the n-muench VLC installed on my 10.04, I idiotically suggested to force a downgrade of libavformat52 and libavcodec52 to the 0.5.1 version bypassing apt-get.

Now the trouble begun: broken packages, broken video players. Although we repaired the package system (ppa-purge, install/reinstall restricted-extras, libav*, gstreamer*, libxvidcore4, ...), Totem is still broken.

Situation now is: VLC (v1.0.6) plays the videos only after repairing the AVI index (it didn't before), Totem keeps saying that no package with requested plugin xvid mpeg-4 decoder could be found. mplayer and ffplay play the video without problems.
