Mplayer won't play dvd-video disc but it plays another dvd-video discs.


Kernel 2.6.21.5, slackware 12.0

Hi:

I have a dvd-video disc (that is, one like those you buy or rent, out of the shelf) which I have played before. So I'm positively sure it plays and is in good condition. Now, I run mplayer on it, and what do I get?
Code:
semoi@darkstar:~/STORE1/soft/linux$ mplayer dvd://1
MPlayer 1.0rc2-4.1.2 (C) 2000-2007 MPlayer Team
CPU: Intel(R) Celeron(TM) CPU                1100MHz (Family: 6, Model: 11, Stepping: 1)

Compiled for x86 CPU with extensions: MMX MMX2 SSE

Playing dvd://1.
There are 11 titles on this DVD.
There are 1 chapters in this DVD title.
There are 1 angles in this DVD title.

The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec.
Try appending the scale filter to your filter list,
e.g. -vf spp,scale instead of -vf spp.
VDecoder init failed :(

VO: [xv] 720x480 => 854x480 Planar YV12

Please supply the text font file (~/.mplayer/subfont.ttf).

Exiting... (End of file)

The truth is the printed output is too technical for me. Could somebody help me?

May the problem is related to subtitles?
Did you try to disable them?

Are you saying that you have played that DVD on that machine with that version of mplayer before?
Or is this the first time that you've tried to play a DVD with mplayer on that machine? Or did you just upgrade mplayer? Are you sure that it's the first title that you want? etc.
You have all the codecs installed?

Does lsdvd show you title 1 as being long enough to play. You get what I mean. Have you checked out the basics? Does mplayer play any video? Mplayer can also "mplayer dvdnav://"

Quote:
MPEG: No audio stream found -> no sound.
That could be no sound on that title, or codecs not workng.

Quote:

Doesn't like your video device. Have you tried another?
Code:
mplayer -vo help
Quote:

This just means that you don't have a font specified in your config for subtitles.


Here are the docs

I made a fool of myself. With
Code:
mplayer dvd://N
where N > 1, I have audio and video. However there are a few things: following mplayer's hint, I do
Code:
$ mplayer dvd://5 -vf spp, scale
..........................
MPEG-PS file format detected.
VIDEO:  MPEG2  720x480  (aspect 2)  29.970 fps  9500.0 kbps (1187.5 kbyte/s)

Opening video filter: [spp]

[PP] Using external postprocessing filter, max q = 6.
Could not find matching colorspace - retrying with -vf scale...
Opening video filter: [scale]
The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec.
Try appending the scale filter to your filter list,
e.g. -vf spp,scale instead of -vf spp.
VDecoder init failed :(
Opening video decoder: [libmpeg2] MPEG 1/2 Video decoder libmpeg2-v0.4.0b
Selected video codec: [mpeg12] vfm: libmpeg2 (MPEG-1 or 2 (libmpeg2))
==========================================================================
...........................
"The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec.": I already put -vf spp, scale. So what do I do: change the video_out device or do I change the codec?

Thanks for your kind post. Regards.

Is it playing the video anyway. If it is don't worry about it.
Code:
mplayer -vo help
will show you the video out devices that you have available.

Example:
Code:
mplayer -vo x11 /name/of/video.avi
Code:
mplayer -vo xv /name/of/video.avi
If you find one that works you can also specify it in ~/.mplayer/config
Code:
# Write your default config options here!
zoom=yes
vo=x11
