Another how to play dvd's question


first: I've looked through the forums allready

I've gotten some dvd's to work with my computer(mandriva le2005 w/mplayer) but most of my dvd's wont work.
my output when trying to play one of these dvd's:
Code:

It seems to be an issue with your permissions. Try changing the permissions for /dev/dvd and give world readable permissions e.g.
Code:
#chmod a+r /dev/dvd

You don't really need to run a windows app to play dvds. There are many alternatives to mplayer, e.g. xine (which can be used alongside totem and kaffeine frontends), videolan and ogle.

yeah, but I used wine to install PowerDVD and it works. That is my normal DVD app, so I am perfectly happy with it.

totem uses the same lib's as xine, so wouldn't it be futile
I'll try to find an old win32 dvdplayer yet I've not had to touch windows since leaving school
