Xine Auto-closes when I try to play movie


Hello,
I am having difficulties playing DVDs. The program closes once I try to get it play. Any reason why?? I remeber last time I had Mandrake 10.1 I had to download stuff to get it to work I forgot what it was though heh..

Thanks,

Dustin

try opening xine in a terminal and looking at the error. or try strace xine and see if it helps, but... strace posts alot of output and you probably wont get it on the term due to lack of space on the term.... hm, you could try..

strace xine > xine_error.txt

and that should create a file that has the entire output of strace xine.. try it. if you get a better error, you can probaly be helped.

i gave you a suggestion, and you didnt do it. if you open it in a terminal, the terminal will report errors... and we can go from there.... it could be unix socket, it could be muted, i dont know without more info. you need libdvdcss, libdvdread, and libdvdnav to decode a css region coded dvd....

libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 1-rc5 from http://xine.sf.net
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.9 for DVD access
libdvdnav: DVD Title: TRANFORMERS
libdvdnav: DVD Serial Number: 39D76058
libdvdnav: DVD Title (Alternative):
libdvdnav: Unable to find map file '/home/dustin/.dvdnav/TRANFORMERS.map'
libdvdnav: DVD disk reports itself with Region mask 0x00fe0000. Regions: 1

libdvdread: Attempting to retrieve all CSS keys

and yet you have no video....?? hm... wierd, have you tried going into xine setup and checking the video driver you are using,,,, it should be set to auto though... try building mplayer, and see if you get the same problem...

ah, did you check what sound server you are running? are you using kde.. if so you should be able to use artsd, it is in the xine setup.. mine doesnt read from the dvd folder either, never.. try making sure it is using artsd, or whatever you use... i use esound.. esd.. what distrobution are you running, you said you had mandrake, is this mandrake as well...??

I am running Mandrake 10.1 Official. I am not sure what sound thing I am using, I am at school and will check and post when I get home. I run KDE and Gnome. It is strange though sound works for everything else... I am going to have to go into my xine audio setup and choose a differnt thing right?

Thanks,

Dustin

well, no, you need to choose the same thing... usually. like for instance, i am using enlightenment... and it uses esd for its system sounds.. so i set xmms, xine, mplayer, chromium, and wahtever else to use esd, that way esd controls all sound. i am curious as to if that is even your problem though. cuase xine comes setup as auto, and that usually works.. and you have used your mixer, like alsamixer, and checked to make sure nothing is muted, or turned down? i dont use mandrake, but i would assume the xine would be configured out of the box, but you could try compiling it from source.....

nothing is muted, I was wondering where I change I audio driver at. I thought the muted thing first but that isn't the case. It is really confusing. I had problems with xine before on another distro. but ended up etting it working. The GUI's i use are gnome and KDE. What woul dthe driver be for them? Under my settings it says plug:front:0 u nder device used for stereo output. I think that could be it, Perhaps?


thanks,

Dustin
