Video streams requiring Windows Media Player plugin stopped working. (probably after VLC or/and GNOME Media Player installs - uninstalling did not help)

I have gstreamer installed.

I have Totem, VLC and Gecko plugins. Tried to disable and uninstall each one of them in any available combination,leaving only one of them etc. Nothing helps. Tried different browsers - all same. I get "missing plugin"

I have Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit

Any suggestions? Thanks
