Have you tried any other players?

I solved the issue.

All other players worked correctly.

The problem turned out to be a ppa which was added to my sources.list file.
For some reason I had a ppa for gnome3 added. Once this was removed, and totem purged, I was able to install the version of totem from the correct repository.

All working normal again now.
