View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] language + sound change in dvd movies

November 8th, 2008, 09:20 PM
When playing dvd movies the sound playback is in either french or spanish although the sound preferance of english is chosen, is there a fix? Also the sound plays when movie starts but stops part way thru the movie, a restart fixes sound but not language. All lib + codecs + restricted sites are installed.

I had a similar problem so I switched from totem player-gstream to totem player-xine. movies play ok now. Totem player-xine can be found in add/remove or synaptic package manager.

Sorry, *NIX newbie here. It seems as though I have both gstream player and xine installed here, and I'm experiencing the exact same symptoms as the OP [DVDs mostly playing in French/Spanish even though English is selected]. I don't know how to disable gstream and/or give xine precedence. Searching for totem xine in Add/Remove only came up with what seems to be the Gstream default. Man pages and extensive Googling have not been helpful here. :(
