Trying to play DVD with xine in RH9 and "no MRL error" msg


Hi everybody,

I'm trying to play a video dvd with xine v0.99.2 and when a hit dvd in the control menu the message "there's no input plugin to handle 'dvd:/' maybe MRL file syntax is wrong or file stream source does't exist."
another msg is "maybe you don't have enough rights for this..."

In the terminal the output is
libdvdread: using libdvdcss 1.2.9 for dvd access
libdvdread: can't stat /dev/dvd

All I can say about the media is that it's surely encrypted.

You need to create a symbolic link to the dvd drive. Something like:

ln -s /dev/hdc /dev/dvd

Alternatively, start xine pointing to the correct drive:

xine dvd:/dev/hdc

Something did moved. Now i've got this output:

libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.9 for DVD access
libdvdnavVDOpenFileUDF:UDFFindFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO failed
libdvdnavVDOpenFileUDF:UDFFindFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.BUP failed
libdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO.

What to do next?

Well, if the disk is dirty, wash it. Also, is the disk region encoded? If so, is your drive region free, or set to the same region?

and it is playing everything now!

You may or may not know this, but RH 9 is no longer supported...just an FYI.
