I have a few DVDs that do not play until the end with MPlayer, but that do
play completely with VLC. Might you patch help with those?

How can I find out that your patch would help in playing a given DVD? Is
there a specific error message I can look out for?

I have too many DVDs with about 99 titles, most of those seemingly the same
length, that I cannot currently play using dvd:// -- I use VLC instead. Do
you think your patch could help with this kind of DVD?

I have applied your patch to my MPlayer checkout and intend to test it by
watching some DVDs in the coming weeks. Can you give me a hint what to look
for regarding your patch?

Thanks,
Erik
