I tried what you said, put xine in my /etc/make.conf USE section, and
rebuilt totem. Unfortuanately it still used the gstreamer backend, but
it turns out changing my bit-depth from 24 to 16 in xorg.conf allowed me
to play DVD's in both Xine and Totem, though totem seems to have
problems in full screen and Xine is a bit twitchy. I don't understand
what, if any functionality is supposed to be lost due to the gstreamer
backend instead of the Xine backend, but it said something about DVD
menus, and I can use the menu on every DVD I have watched, so I am
dumbfounded by what this is reffering to.
Thanks for the help though.
