Re: Totem slow DVD playback and bad sound

Well, I have tried mplayer, gxine, .. not with much better results on Squeeze.

Just discovered..

On Lenny I selected totem-xine alternative and it works nicely, there is also alternative totem-gstreamer that has problems with DVD playback.

On Squeeze Totem i based on gstreamer and uses libdvdread, libdvdcss, libdvdnav, and there is no totem-xine alternative as in Lenny.

So far I Cannot play DVDs with totem on Squeeze.
If anybody can, could they please share their settings with us.

Many thanks in advance.

I don't know if this will be of any help but Google finds a report -quite 
similar to yours- from another user:


(it is written in Brazilian Portuguese but I think the logs can be easily 

It seems the user is also facing that problem when using Totem, VLC and 
MPlayer to watch a comercial DVD in Debian Squeeze.

Given the shared similarities in both cases, I would try to watch another 
comercial DVD and see what happens. It can be a problem with a specific 
DVD media that uses a copy protection measure that makes the media player 
to have problems in decoding.

Also, testing with another multimedia player software won't hurt :-)
