ogle dvd player


im having some trouble playing dvds with ogle,and any other dvd player for that matter.

im using libdvdcss-1.2.2, and ogle/ogle gui.

whenever i start ogle from the command line, i get an error message saying it cant open the DVD rom drive /dev/dvd, so what i did was i went into /dev, and did:
ln -s /dev/scd0 /dev/dvd
so i symlinked it. it still wont work, so to load a dvd, i type in:
ogle /dev/scd0
and it works, sorta.

now when the dvd's playing, it gets really jumpy. im not in KDE, im in enlightenment or IceWM.

why is it jumpy ???

i noticed, that (i tested it out on Episode II) that its fine and not jumpy, its all smooth, until it loads a little info from the cd, then it REALLY starts getting choppy and sound is all messed up and choppy/scratchy. whats the problem ? im using mandrake 9.0.

this is about as much info as i can provide concerning software, but for hardware, look at my comments for my User Profile for my pc hardware. my DVD player is a DVD/CD-RW combo, which is scsi obviously for being /dev/scd0.

It's presumably just using ide-scsi to access
the DVD/CD-RW ...

My first guess would be that DMA is turned off,
since the box as such should have *no* troubles
with any DVD's CPU-wise...

What does hdparm -d /dev/hd<c/d?> say?
Note that this has to be your *real* IDE-device.
On my IBM notebook it's /dev/hdc (master on
secondary IDE-channel).

Cheers,
Tink

im not sure its an IDE device. when i compile my own kernel, it wouldnt work unless i added support for SCSI cd-rom drives, so i assume my drives SCSI. so do i do HDPARM -c /dev/scd0 ??? or do i go ahead and try hdparm -c /dev/hdc ???

you assume it's SCSI? have you never even looked inside your PC? it'll be IDE i totally expect... i'd advise you just removed the scsi emulation from grub or lilo's config files and then it WILL be hdc or whatever and scd0 will be gone

its not a desktop, its a laptop. so i assume its SCSI, yes. im like 99% sure its SCSI.

i got it all working now, thanks to Tinkster. I do hdparm -c 1 -d 1 -k 1 /dev/hdc and i get good performance now. now, the only question is, how do i run this "script" so it will automatically run it at boot time ? so i dont have to type it in every time.

you should be able to set an option in hdparm to save the settings, check the hdparm page for the attribute. -k sounds familiar but i wouldn't trust me on that for a second.
