Totem and other players are just front ends which use gstreamer as a backend which does support replaygain. That being said, Totem does have the possibility to use replaygain but only if that functionality is programed in. If you take a look at this post ( you'll see that another frontend to gstreamer supports only some formats with replaygain, but note that the post is from 2005.

When looking though the Totem bugzilla, I found a few bugs which relate to the replaygain support you are looking for. For example:

I would say that gstreamer has the support for it as long as the audio format (mp3, flac, ogg) is supported. I would look into either communicating with Totem devs by making a bug report after testing what does and doesn't work. You could also check into Rhythmbox or XMMS, which have replaygain support as a feature. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Can you help with this problem?
