Totem no longer works after latest update pom 8.04

Bug Description

Totem xine has been removed and now they have combined totem gstreamer and xine into one unit now called totem comon. I have allways used xine without gstreamer to get totem to work. The gstreamer and xine never have worked together. How can I get totem xine back without gstreaer? This is ruining my whole ubuntu experiance. I know this comes from gnome. But I would just like to use totem. The way it is now it will not even load. Thanksroot@bigdavesr-desktop:/home/bigdavesr# sudo apt-get install totem-xine

Package totem-xine is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
However the following packages replace it:
  totem-plugins totem-common
E: Package totem-xine has no installation candidate
