Codec not found: meta/x-gcc-fourcc-mebx

When I use totem to play .MOV videos shot on recent versions of iOS, it gives the error: “Unable to play the file. meta/x-gcc-fourcc-mebx is required to play the file, but is not installed.”

Totem and nautilus both show the file’s video codec as “H.265 (Main Profile)” and the audio codec as “MPEG-4 AAC.”

These files play fine in VLC. Despite the error, they play in Totem after the error is dismissed, although the playback can be a bit jumpy.

Is there any codec I can install that will enable these to play normally in Totem?
