Hi Donald,

Thank you, I've already done that after reading the ubuntu article on the
newspaper, and I've already install Xine Movie Player and GNOME MPlayer just
to test them. However, I'll stick with VLC because it seems like VLC is
better in my eyes. Now, it seems like my pc didn't pop up totem anymore when
I insert DVD but when I insert VCD, the Totem Player still pop up. I'm still
searchin for any tweak that I can do to get rid of this totem player. maybe
tryin to uninstall it will do.... maybe...
