Description Richard Laager 2008-05-06 02:37:20 UTC
The title pretty much covers this. The totem developers are closing bugs about the lack of DVD menu support in totem-gstreamer because GStreamer doesn't support DVD menus. This is a feature request to gain such support.

I see this may be a duplicate of #476149.
Comment 2 Tim-Philipp Müller 2008-05-06 09:42:17 UTC
It's a known issue. Multiple bugs exist that cover this implicitly, but let's leave this bug open in the hope that people will find it instead of filing new bugs.

Isn't this fixed now that -bad is released with resindvd?
Comment 4 Jan Schmidt 2008-08-02 20:23:37 UTC
I am not yet prepared to call resin a complete solution. It's only built if gst-plugins-bad is configured with --enable-experimental, for one, but that's because it doesn't implement a bunch of stuff yet:
  * Seeking
  * Subpicture and audio track switching
  * Angle switching
  * Some strangeness with still frames remains

Also, the pieces in gst-plugins-base to make it work in playbin aren't released or complete yet (I want to make the default queue size much smaller when in 'DVD mode').

That said, it's underway - I've watched quite a few movies with it now!

Thanks for the status update, and many thanks for working on this in the first place. It's very cool to finally be able to navigate the menus and watch a dvd complete with subtitles using GStreamer!

Is it too early to start filing bugs? I have a few dvds which doesn't work at all, and a few were I can't get past the initial language selection.
Comment 6 Jan Schmidt 2008-08-03 21:37:17 UTC
Please feel free to file issues! I've seen quite a few myself, but that doesn't mean they don't need tracking :)
Comment 7 Peteris Krisjanis 2008-08-24 20:13:42 UTC
Jan, I made a little wiki page where you can get collected information by me on bugs for DVD playback using Gstreamer. I will update it regularly with new tests and bug reports about subject:
Comment 8 Sven Arvidsson 2008-09-17 22:07:00 UTC
Is there a bug filed about the problem using resin with pulsesink, or has it perhaps already been fixed in cvs?

At least when using the resin-play script together with pulseaudio I frequently get this error (no such problem with alsasink):

I guess it's the same problem Christian Schaller mentioned in his blog:
Comment 9 Tim-Philipp Müller 2010-05-02 16:37:25 UTC
Let's close this as OBSOLETE, since we've had DVD menu support for quite some time now.

Please file new bugs against rsndvd for any remaining issues, thanks!
