totem does not read DVD


when I want to use totem to watch a movie, I have the message:

]$ totem

(totem:26995): Grilo-WARNING **: [registry] grl-registry.c:330: Failed to initialize plugin: '/usr/lib64/grilo-0.2/libgrlflickr.so'

(totem:26995): Grilo-WARNING **: [registry] grl-registry.c:330: Failed to initialize plugin: '/usr/lib64/grilo-0.2/libgrltmdb.so'

(totem:26995): Grilo-WARNING **: [registry] grl-registry.c:787: Failed to open module: '/usr/lib64/grilo-0.2/libgrlpodcasts.so'

and it does not work because "there is no audio files"

??

What distro are you using? There are plenty of other movie and music players out there, VLC usually plays any file. However in your case Totem might be missing a codec. Have you installed all the media available for your distro?

To repeat TroN-0074's question: What distro are you using? If you're using a Debian-type distro then you may have to add some repos to your sources.list file such ast:
Code:
deb http://deb-multimedia.org/ testing main non-free
but since you're using yum rather than apt-get or aptitude I guess you're not. You'll need to check on what repos are required by your distro.

You might need some codecs

Enable Restricted Repositories in fedora 17

To enable the RPM Fusion repository just install
Code:
yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

Also Video Codecs for fedora 17
To play various Video formats we need some codecs.

Gstreamer

yum install gstreamer gstreamer-plugins-good gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly

Code:
yum install ffmpeg ffmpeg-libs
K3b MP3 decoder plugin
When you start k3b it says no mp3 decoder plugin. to install

Code:
yum install k3b-extras-freeworld
DVD and Video Players for fedora 17
DVD playback

In order to play DVDs you must install the appropriate codecs.

Code:
yum install libdvdread libdvdnav lsdvd
you can use Livna for installing libdvdcss.

Code:
su -
Code:
rpm -Uvh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release.rpm

yum install libdvdcss
VLC
VLC media player is a highly portable multimedia player and multimedia framework capable of reading most audio and video formats as well as DVDs, Audio CDs VCDs, and various streaming protocols.

Myself and a family member have moved over to Linux Mint because of these issues. Linux Mint plays DVD's and things just fine, by default. I know you probably don't want to re-install to another distro, but it was worth it to me.

technically, people inside the united states arent supposed to use linux-mint because they dont pay royalties to the mpaa for use of various multimedia codecs (dvd decryption, mpeg1,2,4/ mp3, h264,...).

i also use fedora . enable rpmfusion repo to allow access to the royalty hindered codecs. and yum install vlc to play them -- not even rpmfusion risks hosting libdvdcss; i use livna for that.

redhat/ fedora doesnt want to put vlc in the default repo because they dont want to get sued. kinda' the same way google blocks access to vlc/xbmc on the android play store in the us -- you would have to go to their website in order to manually install the .apk.
(linux-mint is headquartered in ireland so i dont think they can get sued).
