Hello mplayer users!

I'm writing a bash script that uses mplayer/mencoder, but I've a problem to get the dvd title lenght from "mplayer dvd://$TITLE -identify": ID_LENGHT value (the lenght in seconds of the dvd title, the same lenght displayed by gmplayer) is uncorrect (I know that because both xine and tcprobe from transcode tool set display the same value printed on the DVD box). Furthermore, the gmplayer time displayed before "/" is completely nosense. On the other hand, I've notice that there's no problem with avi, mkv, ogm, ogg and mp3 files.

Have anybody noticed the same problem? Is it an mplayer bug? Or does it depend on some external library?
Thanks for your time (and for your answer, too, I hope!).
