Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: totem


I feel that totem-xine is better for video playback than totem-
gstreamer. I recently tried to playback a Video DVD. I installed every
required package and I was able to playback the movie but I could
neither select my audio language (just stopped to play any sound) nor
got any menus.

After pausing and resuming playback was very slow and I had to
completely stop and play it from the beginning...

Also totem-gstreamer doesn't work very goot with w32codecs (I know it is
not included in the distribution...).

After I had installed totem-xine all worked perfecty (DVDs with menus
and language selection, w32codecs and so on). So why don't you just make
totem-xine the default and save us users a lot of time which we lose by

 1. figuring out what is wrong with the video player and
 2. to find out that we can use another engine for video playback.
