Comment (by awk at awkward.org):

 I can certainly change this to use an alternate string instead of
 'Internal' to switch into - that way there's still a choice. I'll make
 that change and upload a revised patch.

 I wasn't aware of any existing UI for the Internal DVD player like a
 'onscreen remote control' ? Or did you mean something else ? The Mac OS X
 framework doesn't provide any UI of it's own, it's all up to the
 application to provide that. There's a reference for the API at
 Basically it's just about displaying and rendering the stream - so long as
 it's in 'VIDEO_TS' layout (which means it can't be used as an alternate
 MPEG-2 decoder - it only does DVD's).

 I'd love to be able to adopt what ever else is being done for UI and On
 screen displays - but at this early stage the focus seemed to be more on
 'just making it work' with the wide range of DVD's out there. Ideally an
 end user wouldn't be able to tell from visual appearance if they're using
 the Internal player or something else.
