Thanks for lsdvd.  I was just looking for a quick way to find the total
time of the main title of a dvd and this works well.  Are there any
plans to have mplayer/mencoder show this info?  

I noticed as well that mplayer shows incorrect bitrate for vbr mp3
tracks of avi files, for example:

AUDIO: 48000 Hz, 2 ch, 16 bit (0x10), ratio: 4000->192000 (32.0 kbit)

aviplay shows the correct bitrate in its `about stream` window. Is
there any chance to steal this feature?  :)
