Angry Totem wont play DVDs

Every video player I have plays DVDs fine except Totem. Mplayer I had to change the default /dev/cdrom to /media/cdrecorder in the setup. I have a SONY CDRW/DVDROM and a NEC CDRW/DVDRW. They both work fine and every thing else works fine.

Totem plays video files just fine, it just refuses to play DVDs. Now I know, I have plenty of other programs to use that work fine. It's just the principle that something isn't working like it should and that anoyes the hell out of me.

Here are some screen shots that might be usefull.





Sorry, when I tried to post, the BBS said I don't have enough post to post URL's. Replace the _'s with the proper ones.

Might be a plugin not in the right place. I would look into that.
