How is/will be implemented for f8? At the moment under livna development
tree I can notice that there is only totem-xine 2.18....
Does this mean that in f8 we, european users, could finally avoid
deinstalling totem from fedora and installing instead totem-xine from livna
(or other alternative repos)?
And how is backend for totem in f8? If gstreamer, was it fixed to support
dvd navigation and play?
Thanks for your answers, so that I know how to better test and feedback it
