DVD AutoPlay (also CD autoplay)
Authored by: jetak on Mar 10, '10 01:45:28AM

I set both of these keys to false as well as added AutoplayDVD false to com.apple.finder.pref, and DVDplayer still opens. It does not play, but I DO NOT want it to automatically open when I mount a DVD.

DVD AutoPlay (also CD autoplay)
Authored by: jimmyhoffa on Aug 07, '10 08:22:11PM

The problem is that DVD Player is responding to preferences on what to do once the application is already running. To adjust settings on what to do when a DVD (or CD) is inserted, go to System Preferences -> CDs & DVDs (in the Hardware section) -> and set the drop-downs to "Ignore".
