rpm -qa | grep totem lists

I've set it running now on my 1.6GHz laptop.  For some reason I haven't got 
gkrellm showing the numerical value, but it looks as though it is taking 
about 40% cpu.

I asked that question.  There is no soundtrack, it is purely a screen-capture.  
I can only assume that aRts tries to start as default with any mm. file.  If 
I just click on the file I get a message that aRts can't start - I think 
that's what it said - but if I 'Open with' Media Player it plays.
