Unhappy MPlayer with DVDs, me stumped


Ok, I run mplayer like this

mplayer -dvd -dvd-device /dev/scd0

And that's fine, except the DeCSS step seems to up the shoot, I can see that it is playing my disc, but it's not decoding them properly (massive green snot all over the picture). I have simply done this to install mplayer

./configure --enable-gui
make
make install


Nothing clever.

P.S. I have region-freed my drive by flashing it, mplayer's not going to screw it up is it?

Ok, it's saying I didn't compile it with DVD support



But in the docs it implies that it's done by default

Try playing with a different output device.

ie: mplayer -vo x11 -dvd 1 -dvd-device (whatever)

if that works its likely no a DeCSS problem. What you describe is what happened to me when I was trying to use -vo xv without having my xvideo drivers properly set up.

You can also do mplayer -vo help to get an output of your available video devices that mplayer can use.

I still say my best recommendation is to read the docs provided both in the sources and the website. Its VERY well documented and not that hard to understand. It made the big difference for me.

run ./configure and check for libmpdvdkit2 that's what you'll want to play dvd's properly. where did you get this source from? if it wasn't the mplayer site itself, get it from there.
