Not sure anyone cares. Ok, I was wrong. Movie repeats do not work in Mint 7 but did work in Mint 6. I will "assume" this is probably a "bug" in Mint 7 as I tried the Live CD and Movie repeats did not work in Live CD either so this probably is not because of updates in Mint 7. Still a great OS.
Lindows, Linspire, Freespire, Ubuntu, Mint 15 Cinnamon
I have also encountered them not repeating. I had to change it from totem-xine to totem-gstreamer to get it to repeat properly. However by doing so you may run into some movies that do not play properly under totem-gstreamer.
