The first patch was made in that way, a second one was send where the
so if you use
it play the longest title (and it may not be the one you want,
especially for DVD of telefilm when you have 4 title of the almost same
if you use
it simply prints the lenght of the various title and exit, in this
way you can select 'manually' (dvd://3 for example) which title you want.
and, finally, if you use
it plays the longest AND display the lenght (among other information,
chapter, cell and audio track if I remenber well)
This feature doesn't delete the old one, you can simply type
if you want to see the film "Aliens Special Edition".
Tha patch was simply a fast integration of lsdvd in the mplayer code.
I was thinking also of remove from the list title shorter than a
value or let the user select the title if more title are different of,
say, 5 % in lenght but it was probably too much work for little gain.
