Hi folks,

I am looking for a user oriented mailing list for totem/gstreamer 
and as of yet have found nothing. Can someone point me towards such 
a list? I know this list is not what I'm looking for and I'm sorry 
to intrude, but perhaps you can consider it feedback :-/ ?

I have a fresh install of debian sarge stable and am trying to get 
totem to work with totem/gstreamer. 

I've successfully run the script  
to install css.

I've installed gstreamer0.8-plugins.

I've set up symbolic links for /dev/dvd and /dev/cdrom.

The package does work somewhat. It will play a .mpg file using 
the /cdrom device, but won't read the same disk as a dvd. 
It can also play an audio cd with video effects. So audio and video 
are setup correctly and working.

When I try to play the dvd I get error messages such as:
-Totem could not play 'file:///dev/dvd'. 
        There is no plugin for this movie.
-Totem could not play dvd://
        -could not open resource for reading
        -failed to open reason unknown
        -could not determine type of stream
        -cannot open file dvd://
        -no plugin to handle this movie

My best guess is that I'm overlooking something obvious about either 
the paths, plugins or devices. But what?

I'm looking to find a user oriented ml where I can catch a few clues 
or hints. Does anyone know of such a list? Google yeilds nil.
