Mageia is a new Linux distribution forked from Mandriva. The first stable release was at the end of May, 2011, and I am just about to publish a review on the main site. This blog post is just to show what happened when I tried to play a video DVD on the GNOME desktop.
Inserting an unencrypted video led to this message prompt, which is nice. That’s how it should be. Totem, by the way, is the only video player installed.
Clicking OK in the previous image led to this one. So I clicked search, and …
It led to this. Cannot play an unencrypted DVD video. Not happy.
How about an encrypted video. No luck there either. Now, I have to figure out how to play video DVD’s on Mageia 1.0. An update will be posted soonest.
