if gnome-app-install is called as "gnome-codec-install" it will expect
a argument like:

gstreamer.net|0.10|totem|DivX MPEG-4 Version 5 decoder|decoder-video/x-divx, divxversion=(int)5 (DivX MPEG-4 Version 5 decoder)

For testing run:
$ ./gnome-codec-install 'gstreamer.net|0.10|totem|DivX MPEG-4 Version 5 decoder|decoder-video/mpeg'

and search if it finds a matching codec (codecs need to be encoded
via X-AppInstall-Codecs= field).

Example codec desktop file:
/usr/share/app-install/desktop/gstreamer-ffmepg.desktop
