Hello tux99, I have only linuxtech repo installed.

I found that the movie player would not play a DVD. This was .iso file on my computer, so I tried a real physical DVD and it worked. The .iso file worked on Fedora with movie player, so maybe I'm missing a plugin or perhaps movie player is a different version. The .iso file works with VLC. I'll try to determine what the version of movie player is on Fedora and compare to SL6.3.

The packages: gstreamer-java and gstream-java-swt were not found. I'm not sure if this may be the problem.

Ok, so your problem is actually with opening iso images, not with DVD playback itself.

This appears to be a limitation of the version of totem (movie player) included in SL6.

Have you tried from command line?

totem dvd://full/path/to/dvdimage.iso

This should work, at least it does for me.

Hello tux99,

Yes, its working!!!

The "totem dvd://full/path/to/dvdimage.iso" did the trick.

Many many thanks for your help tux99.
