Description Sebastian Bergmann (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-17 06:07:03 UTC
When media-video/totem-0.99.19 is built with USE=gstreamer it cannot playback DVDs because the appropriate gstreamer plugins (my guess would be dvd or xine, but I do not know anything about gstreamer's workings) are not installed (they are not in portage).

When media-video/totem-0.99.19 is built with USE=-gstreamer xine-lib is used as the backend and DVD playback works.

I see options: Either build totem with both gstreamer and xine backends if that is possible or add the appropriate gstreamer plugins (if available) to portage and let totem depend on them (maybe optionally when USE=dvd is set).

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. USE="gstreamer" emerge totem
Actual Results:  
DVD playback does not work.

Expected Results:  
DVD playback works.

afaik adding those plugins it still wont work as it should, but i can't test.. so afaic this should be closed cantfix for now.

Currently it will not work anyway as playbin, the gstreamer backend for totem has no support for dvd yet.  Hopefully it will do soon.
