gmplayer: how do I get dvd menus

Postby Guest » Tue Dec 25, 2007 7:43 am

How do I get gmplayer to show the menu from a video dvd (out-takes, interviews, extras, scenes, etc...)?

Basically, after trying them all (Totem, VLC, Xine, Kaffeine, etc...), gmplayer gives far and away the most clear image and best playback for movies, sans that all it does is play the main movie.

Gmplayer is a GUI to mplayer with rather limited functionality
So it's actually mplayer or movie player and as far as I remember mplayer gives you the "menu"
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

As an alternative, I've had good success with ogle.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install ogle
