What formats GtkLauncher will be able to play (through WebKitGTK+)
depends on the GStreamer plugins you have installed. I think you need at
least plugins-good, and plugins-bad for the mp4 files to play.

Notice that GtkLauncher is far from being a media player =). We
currently lack appropriate error reporting in WebKitGTK+ for failures
when loading media files, that is true, but when we get that, it's not a
given that GtkLauncher will report those errors.
