Whe i play DVD movie with smplayer i get wrong information about it's position after some time(after chapter change?)

Here are steps to reproduce it quickly
1. open DVD movie with the player
2. dragging progress indicator at the bottom with mouse, set it's position somewhere in the second half, say 80%

expected result after releasing the button: movie position changed, pogress indicator shows ~80%, time information is like 00:48:00/01:00:00 (80% too)
actual result: movie position changes, progress indicator shows ~5%, time information is like 00:03:00/01:00:00 (5%)

Discussion

  • This is a known problem, but I'm afraid I can't fix it. The problem is that mplayer doesn't report the correct position (as you say, the time position resets after each chapter). It doesn't happen with all dvds though.

     
  • mplayer native UI somehow shows progress information correctly, so they should have the information you need.
    Should i create a bug or feature request to report correct position for mplayer guys then?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    interestingly mplayer's OSD displays the correct time...
