libdvdcss -- I can play some DVDs, but not others!


I have Xine and MPlayer both installed. I have libdvdcss installed, and it cracks some keys, but not very many, meaning I can watch some DVDs, but not very many. I almost always get something like this:

Code:
[slackbox ~] xine dvd:/1
This is xine (X11 gui) - a free video player v0.99.3.
(c) 2000-2004 The xine Team.

I don't know about using xine from the command line but it looks as if the dvd is encrypted in an unknown way. Perhaps the next version of libdvdcss will support your dvd, or try a cvs version of it?

But I can play very few DVDs, possibly one out of twenty-five, it's not just one oddball DVD.

If it makes a difference, here is the output of MPlayer trying to access the same DVD.

Code:

I heard that some new dvd drive is region based.

In this moment, I don't found big problem in dvd playback. The problem I have is probably deinterlace quality.

In this moment, I use "kerndeint" filter. For 4:3 region 2 DVD, I use this sh file:

#!/bin/sh
mplayer -vop expand=-50:-30,crop=700:560,kerndeint -ao alsa -benchmark $2 $3 $4 $5 $6 $7 $8 $9 dvd://$1

This DVD drive is from the middle of last year, and all of my DVDs are region one; I tried that mplayer script anyway, and got the same results.

I just read in the 'Playing DVD and Videos' guide on here that if DMA mode is not on, I may get stuttering in playback. I don't get that problem with the few DVDs that work, but I decided to check to see if DMA mode was on anyway.

Code:
[slackbox ~] su -l
Password:
[slackbox:root /home/cowboy] file /dev/dvd
/dev/dvd: symbolic link to `/dev/scd0'
[slackbox:root /home/cowboy] /sbin/hdparm -d1 /dev/scd0

/dev/scd0:
 setting using_dma to 1 (on)
 HDIO_SET_DMA failed: Invalid argument
Could this be contributing to my DVDs not playing?

I take it you downloaded all the codes from mplayers site and have installed them before trying this no?

Not sure if this will help with a diagnosis or not, but the DVD drive can burn and read _all_ data DVDs without a problem, and both MPlayer and Xine can play downloaded video clips flawlessly.

The only thing I see is a hardware problem then. It might help to list the dvds which don't work here, If anyone posts here saying that the same dvd works on their system then I would have to assume that your hardware (or a driver) is playing up.
Try moving the dvd to another location ie. from hdc to hdd (change it from master to slave) and see if it makes any difference.
