Unhappy mplayer plays in french


I haven't changed anything on my system, and haven't changed anything in mplayer. Yet when I start it from the mulitmedia menu, it now decides to play my dvds in french.

If I run it from the command line mplayer /-alang "en" dvd 1 it works fine. Problem is if I add that to the command in the menu editor, I get errors 'en' not found.

It doesn't bother me to use the command line, but the wife don't like to use it. I like to keep things point and click for her.

Question is where do I change the language to "en"? What directory can I find this in? I have tried adding it to the config file in users directory, but get the same error as when I add it to the menu.

Xine and Ogle still play fine and use the correct language. However I prefer to use mplayer.

Your sexual insecurities don't have a hell of a lot to do with my original question

maybe make a mini script that runs what
works from the command line, and call that from
the menu.
