Bug Description

When I insert a DVD; totem starts and fails to play it (which is a separate but) and it shows only a black screen (no error message). This bug is about the lack of a good error message. If I start totem separately and manually choose "open disc XYZ" in the movie menu of totem then it complains about codec instead.

this is what I see when totem autostarts.

Note that this bug is about NOT GETTING A PROPER ERROR MESSAGE from totem when it autoruns the disc. I know the "DVD plays in totem but not in VLC" but is already reported.

Hi there
Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Can you try with the development version of Ubuntu, Hardy Heron?

Thanks in advance.
