how to get totem-gstreamer to play dvds
Wouldn't that be nice.
However - I cannot find any way of doing this.
If anyone knows better - pleasepleaseplease tell me. I'll give you an affero for it.
In FC4 and Ubuntu 5.04 I get "no url handler for dvd://" error.
What does this mean?
Installing libdvdcss2 just makes totem hang on a black screen.
Googling, and I find that everyone, and I do mean everyone, installs totem xine. And that does the trick. (But, it seems, libdvdcss2 must be installed first if you want to play encrypted dvds.)
The only reason I can think of for prefferring gstreamer to xine in the distros is that perhaps the distro folk want people to develope a dvd plugin for it - y'know: encourage development. Or maybe it has a more open licence?
