Music Single With Video (CD)


Is there a way to play music cds that have a video on in Linux (I am using Ubuntu)?

Usually on these kind of CDs the video is actually in a file somewhere, and the Windows autorun is just a frontend with eyecandy that launches the file for you. Just try browsing the CD and see if you can find it. They're often in Quicktime format, which means you'll need a Quicktime player. VLC usually does the trick, or you could try installing the w32codecs for use with mplayer.

I can play Track 1 and 2 (audio) but cannot play the video. In VLC player no video appears and the sound is dreadful when trying to play track 3 (the video track).

If I try and browse the CD it just opens up a media player

Mount the disk:

When you put the disk in the drive, it probably gets automounted in /mnt or /media. From the command prompt you should then be able to cd /media/cdrom and ls.

If it isn't there, try typing in the command mounts and see what you get. Also try (as root) mount /dev/cdrom. If non of that works, take a loot in /etc/fstab (the file system table) and see what is definde for your CDROM

Thanks for you help but for some reason I couldn't view the contents of the CD in Ubuntu.

In the end I loaded it up onto somebody elses Windows PC, copied the movie files to a data stick and put them onto my laptop.
