Both Totem and Kaffeine fail at playing DVD's now

Recommended Posts

Alright here is a issue I really hope to get fixed, I get these errors when trying to play my DVD's in Mandriva 2010 now.

Here is the error I have in Totem:

 

You are not supposed to show G_IO_ERROR_FAILED_HANDLED in the UI

 

And in Kaffeine:

 

Cannot find input plugin for MRL [dvd:/]

 

DVD codecs are installed, I am not on 64bit and these players have worked on Ubuntu, openSUSE 11.2 and other distros just fine.

You've got libdvdcss2 installed?

Yes, you will need libdvdcss2 from the plf repository.

Yes i mentioned that above...

DVD codecs are installed

 

Thus libdvdcss is installed.

Is your system fully up to date with "Update Your System"?

 

Yes, covered.

 

Hey like I said before I have been a linux user for 5 years so I think by now I should know what to do

This is a GIO bug which comes and goes... but it appeared again in Gnome 2.28

Simply update your Gnome packages, or wait for a proper update, or use VLC or Smplayer to playback.

I am on KDE though :hanged:

I know totem is Gnome, but not Kaffeine.

Totem will use GIO, no matter if it's fired inside Gnome or not.

About Kaffeine, I have no real idea if the backend (likely xine-lib) is crippled or not.

Mplayer and vlc from the official repos are surely crippled (compiled with loads of things left out) and they must be replaced by their PLF variations.

Well yeh VLC and Smplayer seem fine here, just wondering if this was a bug.
