I'm afraid Totem dropped xine backend since the latest releases and uses 
gstreamer ;-(

Are you saying that you can't play "any" commercial DVD with totem under 
Squeeze? If that's your case, I would open a bug report for that.



That's the point, on Lenny totem-xine works just about fine and can read commercial DVDs nicely, while totem-gstreamer on Lenny (the other alternative in Lenny distribution) cannot and does not work.

gstreamer-xine was dropped in Squeeze (licensing issue?),
the release candidate in Squeeze became totem-gstreamer that cannot read DVDs,
and is an integral part of gnome-desktop.

At least on my machine it cannot play any DVDs on Squeeze, (some 10-15, taken at random), it does not seem to me as a performance issue, or setting issue, since it does not complain about missing codecs, libs etc.

Would be good to read more users' feedback, before posting a bug.

VideoLAN not tested so far. others yes, same problem.
