Videos (formerly Totem) 3.12 Beta 1, the official movie player of the GNOME desktop environment based on Gstreamer that features a playlist, a full-screen mode, seek, and volume controls, is now available for testing.

This is a rather big update to Totem, if we keep in mind that it's actually rather close to the final 3.12 version.

Highlights of Totem 3.12 Beta 1:

• Sideways swipe gestures have been added to seek inside the window;
• The Open/Add menu items have been added to the "Add" button;
• Drop support has been added to the "Recent" section of the overview;
• A "Make Available Offline" option has been added;
• The "Play DVD" remote control key is now responding.

A complete list of modifications can be found in the official changelog. Download Video (formerly Totem) 3.12 Beta 1 right now from GNOME.

Remember that this is a development version and it should NOT be installed on production machines. It is intended for testing purposes only.
