Thanks munthe, that's the reasonable approach but it doesn't work on KDE. The device is /dev/hdc. When I use either "vlc dvd:///dev/hdc" or "vlc dvd://" or "vlc dvdsimple://..." I get the error "Expected to find file but found folder instead" or sth like that.
DVD is mounted and vlc dvd:// or vlc dvd:///dev/hdc works ok from the terminal. So does xine from the terminal. But when I use this syntax in KDE's control centre, xine just fires up without playing anything. No error message.
The only way to make xine autoplay the dvd was xine dvd:/ #%u.
