Totem-gstreamer still not working

Hi folks, 

I have a fresh install of sarge stable and am trying to get totem to 

I've successfully run the script  
to install css.

I've installed gstreamer0.8-plugins.

I've set up symbolic links for /dev/dvd and /dev/cdrom.

The package does work somewhat. It will play a .mpg file using 
the /cdrom device, but won't read the same disk as a dvd.

When I try to play the dvd I get error messages such as:
-Totem could not play 'file:///dev/dvd'. 
        There is no plugin for this movie.
-Totem could not play dvd://
        -could not open resource for reading
        -failed to open reason unknown
        -could not determine type of stream
        -cannot open file dvd://
        -no plugin to handle this movie

My best guess is that I'm overlooking something obvious about either 
the paths, plugins or devices. Can someone give me a few hints?
