[Bug 466389] Re: totem hangs when try to play DVD

I have the same issue with totem hanging when trying to play some DVDs
both either from "auto-run" dialog or from the "Play disk..." menu item.
Of course, one can play VOBs directly, but it seems to be not really
user-friendly. So it has to be fixed.

Since I firstly encountered this problem I have made the following changes to my Ubuntu 9.10 amd64:
- enabled karmic-proposed repository to get all possible related fixes, especially patched libdvdnav4;
- added streamer-developers PPA, that fixed another issue with one of the DVDs, playing with no sound as described in thread https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/totem/+bug/403098;
- added medibuntu repository as described in thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766683 and tried to solve the problem installing libdvdcss2 and w64codecs from there, which did not help.

Finally I have installed totem-dbg and made a backtrace. Additionally
can inform that in system monitor totem is in "sync_page" state during
hang. Hope it helps developers.

** Attachment added: "backtrace"
