Can anyone recommend a program to play dvd movies on linux.
it would be nice if i could use the same vendors product for windows.
I am running redhat 9 and white box. (two boxes)
I am looking for software to play dvd movies on my linux box.
try mplayer with the kplayer frontend. Download all the plugins for mplayer such as libdvdread and libdvdcss and such. I use it for encoding/ripping and playing, works great and it's free. Just use your favorite portage app (yum, apt-get, urpmi, etc...) to get it.
Xine or Kaffeine are the 2 i recommend as mplayer can be more then a pain in the butt to get compiled and working properly. IIRC though RH comes (thus WB too) with some built in movie programs. been a while since i looked at my RH install, but i could of swore there was something that comes with the base GUI install of RH that plays DVDs if you have the proper codexs.
