howto see extra features/menu on DVD?
 
Hey all,

I love to use MPlayer for all my video stuff, and since recently also for watching dvd's.

Is it possible with MPlayer to use the dvd menu? I mean, where one can choose to see the extra features, set language etc. Now I simply start the main movie with "mplayer dvd://1".
If MPlayer cannot do this, which apps can?

Cheers, Leon.

"xine" is very good for DVDs and navigating menus.

I got rid of xine long time ago because I liked MPlayer far better. But I'll give it a new try. Thanks!

But to get things clear, what I ask for is not possible with MPlayer? No plugins or something like that?

Cheers, Leon.

From the mplayer documentation:

Q:
What about DVD navigation/menus?

A:
MPlayer does not support DVD menus due to serious architectural limitations that prevent proper handling of still images and interactive content. If you want to have fancy menus, you will have to use another player like xine, vlc or Ogle. If you want to see DVD navigation in MPlayer you will have to implement it yourself, but be aware that it is a major undertaking.

Too bad. I love MPlayer, it's such a powerfull app, especially using the command line. Well, indeed, xine does the job perfectly. Thanks!

Cheers, Leon.
