Description Darren Brierton 2004-07-03 11:40:56 EDT

Description of problem:
Whenever I insert a video DVD magicdev mounts it as if it was a data
DVD instead of using the command (totem dvd:) specified in CD and DVD
properies. The DVDs in question are region 2 discs.

In "Preferences -> CD and DVD" under "DVD (Video)" I have checked the
"Run command when DVD (video) is inserted" option and specified

totem dvd:

as the command. If I insert a DVD, let magicdev mount it as if it were
a data DVD, and then enter the above command in a terminal it works
perfectly, so I don't think there is anything wrong with the command.
Magicdev does the right thing for data discs, audio CDs and blank CDs,
so it seems to be a problem with video DVDs only.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In CD and DVD Preferences select "Run command when DVD (video) is
inserted" option, and specify something which works for your system.
2. Insert a region 2 video DVD.

Actual Results:  Video DVD is mounted as if it were a data DVD and
automatic playing does not happen.

Expected Results:  Totem (or whatever player specified) starts
playback of the DVD.

Comment 2 John (J5) Palmieri 2004-07-03 12:07:35 EDT
Marked as won't be fixed because magicdev is being replaced by
gnome-volume-manager in the next release.  It should just work with
respect to DVDs.
