View Full Version : Totem - Playing a DVD from a Mounted ISO Image

As the title implies, I have .iso images of several of my DVDs, and I use totem to watch them, partly because Totem just seems to run smoother in Fedora 10 than VLC. I wrote my own python script to mount the images in /mnt/iso instead of using the "right click, open with image mounter" option because when I use that neither VLC or Totem will read the URL as a playable source. So in Totem after running my script I just "Open Location, dvd:///mnt/iso". My question though is that, even though this works in Totem, it plays all of the previews and I can't seem to skip them. In VLC, it goes straight to the main menu. I wouldn't mind watching the previews if I was able to actually skip them at will. My issue with VLC is that no matter how I tweak the settings, videos skip from time to time, and on some videos, no matter how I change the audio settings, my audio skips every now and then as well. Totem seems to take up no processor time and runs flawlessly, I just want to be able to skip the previews, :p

Do you have the libdvd* libraries installed? Also, are you using the gstreamer or xine totem backend? If you're not sure, select Help > About it will tell you.

Actually, I found out what was causing a lot of my issues. I uninstalled Pulseaudio and it remedied a lot of the problems I was having, so now I can use VLC without the sound and video tearing, which remedies this problem. Now my only remaining problem is this one. (http://www.forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=211117)
