autoplay dvd in xine
Hello all,

Using Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04)

Have been trying to get DVD to play automatically in Xine when the disc is inserted.

Currently, it is insisting on playing in Totem Movie Player.

I remember in Ubuntu Edgy Eft, there was a multimedia applications configuration GUI that could be launched from the Preferences menu, but in Hardy Heron, this is not so.

Anybody know how to make Xine the default DVD player?

Here's what I ran to get xine (instead of totem) to play DVDs on detection for my Fedora installation.

gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/volume_manager/autoplay_dvd_command \
'xine --auto-play --auto-scan dvd' --type='string'

Hope this helps.
