Implement playlist containers
Last modified: 2018-05-22 12:30:57 UTC
Parse .pls/.m3u files and expose their contents as a playlist container
totem-pl-parser can be used there, to do the parsing. It also has support for detecting the type of medium inside ISO files, and directory hierarchies.
Yes, using totem-pl-parser was the idea here - at least for "normal" playlists. Looked at the CD utility functions, that looks useful indeed.
Also check if we should support them in CreateObject then...
The disc support in totem-pl-parse only can tell me whether this is a DVD, VCD, SVCD or BlueRay, right? It cannot retrieve the actual title list?

Yes, and it will give you an appropriate URI for that (vcd:///..., dvd:///..., etc.)
> It cannot retrieve the actual title list?
No, because, for a movie player with an input system to go past menus, there's only one "title" or entry point into the DVD. If you want the track list, GStreamer can offer that once you've opened the URI.
This problem has been fixed in the unstable development version. The fix will be available in the next major software release. You may need to upgrade your Linux distribution to obtain that newer version.
