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. :confused:

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.

I have the same issue and was wondering if anyone had a fix. Thanks

I upgraded to Mplayer RC2 and it fixed the issue. Hope this helps. Thanks

mplayer -dvd 1 -alang en

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

i was just reminded of the of all the recent jokes about
"My tivo thinks i'm gay."
Thanks for cussing at me for making a joke, Mr Sensitive.

all right you two, don't make me turn this car around :)

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