no VLC DVD playback, no audio on CD


Fresh install of debian lenny / mostly defualt load
VLC 1.0.5 install
cd rom
dvd rom
vlc plays cd (no audio but can see tracking of song) but not dvd
fstab (cannot edit -permissions and dont know how to effect the proper permissions)
fstab
/dev/hda /media/cdrom0 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
/dev/hdb /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 user,noauto 0 0
someone recommended changing to
/dev/cdrom1 /""
dont see how that would fix audio but anyway
cannot change fstab
checked advanced input / codec in VLC
dvd = dev/hdb
cd = dev/hda

totem -plays the dvd but quality / volume is not there, prefer VLC
detailed assistance desired as I am that green
soundjuicer plays the audio with sound nicely

Just would like VLC to do it all

Thanks, Mike

Do you have libdvdcss2 and libdvdread3 installed? The latter is in the Debian repos, the former you need to enable the Debian Multimedia repo.

I'm an mplayer guy myself, no not too sure what else VLC uses, but rumor around the web suggests install these:
ffmpeg
libavcodec51
libavdevice52
libavformat52
libavutil49
libpostproc51
libswscale0

Ok. Well, first thing is you should probably do some reading on the basics.

http://www.fandangle.com.au/linux/176.html
http://linuxappfinder.com/addrepo
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianMultimedia

This is for Ubuntu but much of it still applies.

You might also want to consider Ubuntu as a more new person friendly distro.

First of all , vlc 1.0.5 is not included in lenny.
Why not using vlc 0.8.6 , default vlc in lenny?
And how did you install vlc 1.0.5?

>i do not know how to ck if i have css2 and read3 installled
Just open the terminal window , and invoke
dpkg -l libdvdcss2 | grep '^ii'
if nothing comes out , then you have to install libdvdcss2.

graphics driver

I had a similar problem recently and found the problem was my graphics card driver was not installed. Might want to make sure you have the latest version of the driver. Vlc was giving me gobbley gook for video output but for some reason MPlayer was working (I guess VLC uses more intricate processing).

I installed the latest NVidia driver and works great now.

How many threads does it take to fix one problem?

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...in-vlc-789962/

Still wondering how you installed vlc 1.0.5 since it is only in Debian unstable.


Build the current vlc 1.0.5 the Debian way.
