Heh!  MediaPlayer doesn't like them at all!  Most of them just
lock the app up (Needs the 3-finger kill), but the first in the folder
pops up "None of the files you wanted to play appear to be
media files!"

Does that mean that SMPlayer is using a different access scheme?

I know that mediaplayer "native" in haiku, doesn't do buffering or something with CD's and it skips due to lack of buffer, I wonder if dvd acess suffers the same fate ? I do know that VLC .86i will play some dvd's on haiku ok, but will crash for some unknown reason , sometimes.
