I have a DVD device in my box and the following string in /etc/fstab
/dev/dvd /media/dvd iso9660 ro,noauto,user,iocharset=koi8-r,mode=0444 0 0
When I insert a DVD video media into the device I can mount DVD making use the applet. Then when clicking on the applet I get menu with two items:
When I select "Play" applet always crashes.
Totem is installed in the system (1.4.2-r1)
This happens if and only if gnome-volume-manager is not intalled, which was my case.
The bug still exists for gnome 2.16
