Here's a blurb from GNOME 2.22 release page 

      3.4. DVD, Digital TV, and More

GNOME's Movie Player now offers improved support for DVD playback as 
well as support for digital television (DVB). Also appearing in 2.22 is 
a selection of new plugins, including support for MythTV, Youtube, and 
Tracker-based searching. This release also features playlist sharing and 
the ability to select subtitles for files.

GNOME 2.22 premieres the capability to preview and play Flash content 
and video using the free and open Flash decoder swfdec.
