  Totem-gstreamer: Aspect ratio not correctly detected

Status in totem package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Using totem-gstreamer in an up to date Dapper system, the aspect ratio
  seems to default to "square" for all videos. The correct aspect ratio
  for any video I tested with (a couple dozen) was 4:3, so the default
  results in very tall-looking people.

  Once you set the aspect ratio to 4:3 it looks fine, but the setting
  isn't preserved - you have to do it every time you run totem. The
  default was correctly detected in Breezy, and I'll bet a lot of users
  won't know how to change this setting.
