I want to specify VLC as the default DVD player, but haven't had any success following the instructions in this thread.

I've used gconf-editor to set the autoplay dvd command to vlc, and I've also entered the following command from the terminal:

gconftool-2 --type string --set /desktop/gnome/volume_manager/autoplay_dvd_command "vlc dvd://"
. . . but I'm still stuck with Totem opening every time I insert a DVD.

Would really appreciate some help!
