Bug#390029: totem is confused by unmounted dvds

Package: totem
Version: 1.4.5-1
Severity: normal

if i attempt to play an unmounted dvd via "Movie" -> "Play Disc", totem
will spin up the dvd, then incorrectly say "Totem could not play 'dvd:/'.
The source seems to be encrypted DVD without libdvdcss?".  this error is
incorrect because i do indeed have lidvdcss installed because if i first
do "mount /cdrom", and then try to play the dvd via "Movie" -> "Play
Disc", it plays just fine.

this is bad because novice users will not understand the error and will
be turned away because their software doesn't work as they expect.

thanks for your hard work.
