vlc and ogle work just beautifully for me (mandrake 9.0)

had to get a bucket load of extra stuff to go with vlc (recommended from their
home site )

despite what Mr. kewpie says - I personally have never been able to get mplayer to install whether from rpm, .src.rpm or tar.gz (but in all other things he is wise and kind)

well just compile it and see what oes wrong, find out why it goes wrong, and stop it going wrong. sounds patronising, but if you just take a little time you'll get there. personally i never had any problems....

but then if you think that's patronising i spent all bloody day upstairs in Lloyds pharmacy in Kings Heath high street being told how to move a mouse. sadly though i was in with a group of old women who actually did need all the help they can get....

you don't need to install them in the right order, just put them all in the same command. much easier.

and mplayer is better than ogle.

I'm a newbie to Linux as well. Among other things I'm having trouble getting DVD's to run. After attempting Xine and then Mplayer, I'm back to Xine.

I still have not gotten it to work though, but I'm close...

I'm running Xine from the gnome terminal. The application comes up , I select dvd and it reads. Then an error message comes up saying "encrypted media stream detected Playback aborted".

I've downloaded and installed all of the rpm's that have been written about...

curl-7.10.3-1.i386.rpm, libdvdcss-1.2.6-2.network.i386.rpm, libpng-1.0.2-1.i386.rpm, xine-ui-0.9.20cvs-030411.i586.rpm, libxine1-1_cvs-030411.k7.rpm

I think it might have something to do with the region encoding. I'm setting up a new pc and DVD ROM. I've read that you have to set the region in the DVD player. But I don't even know where to start there...

Help please...

Also,

Since I've messed with the original installation of mdk, I can no longer find xine in the pull down menu. I know I'm still used to windows and haven't cut the leash. But does that mean somehting more as far as how the program operates?

You need the Xine DeCSS plugin, see the Xine homepage for info on this. I never got Xine or MPlayer to work right with DVDs, I just use ogle now.

Don't worry about the menus, you are lucky they work at all, we're in the process of removing the old menu system and moving to a new one, expect many apps to not have menu entries at all until we're done.

I've installed this rpm:

libdvdcss-1.2.6-2.network.i386.rpm

isn't this the CSS plugin? I'm not seeing anything else on the mdk rpm download site. http://cambuca.ldhs.cetuc.puc-rio.br/xine/

Thanks...

Hey. I think to read encrypted DVD with Xine you need to read the HOWTO on "Alternative plugins". This is how I got Xine to play my favorite DVDs. Here is the link. Xine can't give you them directly so you have to search for them. MPlayer comes with them included, although libdvdnav support is broken,

http://dvd.sourceforge.net/xine-howt...o-5.html#ss5.3

You'll need to recompile Xine.

I'm learning as I go here so thanks for the direction.

I've downloaded "libdvdread-0.9.4-fr3.src.rpm"

How do I recompile?

Hmm.. you found a src rpm.
Go here
http://www.dtek.chalmers.se/groups/dvd/downloads.shtml

Get the source tarball and run
tar -xzvf <filename>

Read the README and the INSTALL files. They'll tell you more.

Source RPM's freak me out. Sorry

What is the difference between a Source rpm and a source tarball?

Are the install and readme files in the tar? I'm not finding them on the site.

A src.rpm is similar to tar.gz file except that it's in an rpm format. I just like using tar.gz (tarballs) that way I can see everything once it's expanded. Sometimes the README that is included doesn't get read when compiling a src.rpm.

Yes, the README should be in the directory that the tar.gz file made.

ok, well disregard the last about the locations of the files. I ran the tar and followed the directions in the install file. I'm still getting the encoding error though???
