Since upgrading from Kodi 18 to Kodi 19.0 Disc playback hasn't been working. The disc menu appears when I insert the disc but pressing Play Disc doesn't result in any action at all.

I asked about it on the Kodi forums but they said that ArchLinux wasn't a supported distro and that I should bring it up here.

There was an upstream bug with disc playback in 19.0 that should have been resolved in 19.1

Additional info:
* package version(s)
kodi-x11 19.1

* config and/or log files etc.
Debug log:

* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
Insert DVD
Navigate to DVD menu
Select 'Play Disc'
(nothing happens)
This task depends upon

It appears that kodi is able to play discs now only after they are mounted by an outside process.

Could you check if there is improvement with kodi-19.1-5 ?
