Arrow DVD Player, and DVD/MP3 ripping


Could anyone reccomend a good dvd player for mandrake 9.1?

I am also looking for a program that can rip dvds to divx, and another to rip mp3s from cd.

I am slowly trying to phase windows from my machine, so the sooner I can do these things the better

Try ogle

I use ogle for playing dvd's

I have put all the rpm's for Mandrake 9.1 on my site <<here>>

Enjoy.

You can also use mplayer or xine - both work well with mandrake 9.1.

As with all things linux, it is down to personal choice, try them all, see which one you like.

Chris.

Hello,

I installed your rpm package. The player comes up. When I try to play it errors out complaining about audio device. I have alsa installed and it works fine with xmms and even xine. I have attached the console output below.

Any suggestions please.

Thanks,
Senthil

looks like you've not set any details in the sound preferences. personally i'd still suggest a decent player like mplayer....

You do need to install all 5 packages (in the correct order).

ogle-0.9.1-ogle1alsa.i586.rpm deals with alsa sound.

If this does not work, try the ogle website << here >>, they may have more ideas.

OR use mplayer or xine (both really good dvd players).

WHy don't you try installing mplayer via CVS. Here is a link on how to do that: http://tuxpower.f2g.net/mencoder.php I tried mplayer rpm packages before and I couldn't get mencoder working. Make sure you have lame installed also so you can do 3-pass dvd encoding.

Hi all,

Thanks for the replies. I actually tried xine and mplayer before trying ogle. I have used xine before on RH 8 and everything was fine. Now I have changed to Mandrake 9.1 and xine is not smooth. Not sure what setting is wrong.

Then tried mplayer. With this, the player gui closes after playing the first 2 secs or so of the DVD. I tried other options listed in the output but nothing worked. The mplayer console error output is as follows (hence tried ogle)-

************************************************
**** Your system is too SLOW to play this! ****
************************************************

Possible reasons, problems, workarounds:
- Most common: broken/buggy _audio_ driver
- Try -ao sdl or use ALSA 0.5 or the OSS emulation of ALSA 0.9.
- Experiment with different values for -autosync, 30 is a good start.
- Slow video output
- Try a different -vo driver (-vo help for a list) or try -framedrop!
- Slow CPU
- Don't try to play a big DVD/DivX on a slow CPU! Try -hardframedrop.
- Broken file
- Try various combinations of -nobps -ni -forceidx -mc 0.
- Slow media (NFS/SMB mounts, DVD, VCD etc)
- Try -cache 8192.
- Are you using -cache to play a non-interleaved AVI file?
- Try -nocache.
Read DOCS/video.html and DOCS/sound.html for tuning/speedup tips.
If none of this helps you, read DOCS/bugreports.html.

Oops sorry, I guess I am posting my problems on a different thread. Moderator, if possible can you please move the relevant postings of my problem to a new thread with say "dvd player issues" as heading?

Thanks,
