DVD made in K3b won't play in other players...


Hi all,

Ok, I'm probably an idiot. I was trying to backup one of my dvds, but I have had a small problem (it really does seem like a small problem, but it's a pain). Here's what I have done...

$vobcopy -m -to copy the DVD to harddisk. I'm using vobcopy

version 0.5.13.

Then I used DVD Shrink in Wine to compress it. Okay, no problems there.

After that, I burned the AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS directories (produced by DVD Shrink) to a DVD-R disc using K3b version 0.11.23. I did this by selecting New Data DVD Project. I'm guessing this be my problem.

This disk plays great in my Apex DVD player, but not in the others I have tested (Sony, Sanyo, Emerson).

Could it be the DVD-R disc?
Or perhaps the "New Data DVD Project" choice?
Maybe I need to upgrade my version of K3b?

I have tried to give as much info as possible. Please help I'm still new to this, so don't be afraid to "dumb-it-down" for me.

Thanks for any help you can give me

Bill

some players won't recognise dvd-r's only +r's some(older) ones won't recognise anything other than a factory pressed disc. try the same file on a plus r with the booktype changed to rom if you can.

Well, since k3b is up to version 0.12.3, it probably wouldn't hurt to upgrade.

Otherwise, use www.google.com/linux to research k3b. There may be libraries available to encode for a greater variety of hardware.

Hello!

I have not had any problems with K3B and DVDs. Have you also tried burning the DVD with "Create new Movie DVD" or something like that (I'm not on my own computer right now, so I can't check it out).

Good luck!

Thanks guys

I'm gonna try both suggestions. Why not upgrade k3b anyway, right?

When trying to compile k3b, I get this error on ./configure:

checking for g++... g++
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... yes
checking whether g++ accepts -g... yes
checking dependency style of g++... gcc3
checking whether gcc is blacklisted... yes
configure: error:

This particular compiler version is blacklisted because it
is known to miscompile KDE. Please use a newer version, or
if that is not yet available, choose an older version.

Please do not report a bug or bother us reporting this
configure error. We know about it, and we introduced
it by intention to avoid untraceable bugs or crashes in KDE.


Does this mean I have to upgrade gcc? If so, I have no idea how to do this. Is this a common thing with FC4?

Thanks for your help

Bill

Have you tried to find a binary for your computer? I am not familiar with Fedoras packaging system, but I still think you should be able to install a binary RPM, and not need to compile yourself.

Hi all,

Finally got it working. I was burning them as Data DVD instead of "New Video DVD Project". Worked like a charm.

Geez, I'm an idiot. Please don't hold it agains't me.

Still would like to know how to do it in the CLI tho.

Thanks again

Bill
