Bug Description

I insert video DVD (non encryption) disc - in is automatically mounted and accessable via standard /dev/dvd, /dev//sr0, ...

But when I run Totem, there is no "Play Disc" in "Movie" menu.

"Eject" is also grayed out, ...

Simply - Totem ignores my DVD as would not exist.

in my case /dev/dvd does not exist so maybe it's good idea to make slink like ln -s /dev/sr0 dev/dvd

So - there is the problem not. Thanks anyway.

Using Ubuntu 12.04 x64...
- The "Eject" option under "Movie" menu option is grayed out.
- The "Play Disk" option is simply missing.
