Package: mplayer
Version: 2:1.0~rc3+svn20100502-2
Severity: normal

According to mplayer news [1] it supports new way to play DVDs - mplayer 
dvdnav://. As per my understanding this means display of DVD menu. But even 
though Debian's mplayer package is created from a recent snapshot this 
functionality is not available.

Following error is seen when trying to use uri dvdnav://
on...@ibook:~$ mplayer -nocache dvdnav://
MPlayer SVN-r1.0~rc3+svn20100502-4.4.3 (C) 2000-2009 MPlayer Team

mplayer: No such file or directory

It seems that mplayer is not built with dvdnav support (missing build-dep 
libdvdnav-dev). I did a local build with libdvdnav-dev added as build-dep and 
resulting mplayer package shows DVD menu.
It will be great if this functionality was added in Debian package.
