wrong default audio language for DVDs

Bug #145791 reported by Sam Brightman on 2007-09-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
mplayer (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: mplayer

mplayer appears to select the default audio language from somewhere other than the language setting. I have my language set to English (UK) and time zone to Zurich: mplayer starts playing DVDs in German. However, changing time zone to Paris doesn't cause them to start in French: still German. Fully updated Feisty. I have not tested this with other multi-language formats.

Is this symptom still reproducible in 8.10 RC or later?

I haven't got around to moving to Intrepid yet. I think this happened on a Swiss rental DVD where the "first" language was German and the DVD also had English (which was my language setting). My guess was that it was simply selecting the first language. I will have to try renting again after moving to one of the RCs.
