How do I view dvd in Slackware 12
 
Using Xfce 4.4.2, what do I need to do to view a DVD? I use audacious to listen to cds but never had the need to set anything up to view DVD till now. The following is my /etc/fstab
Quote:


#/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,owner,ro 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

Thanks

If you mean to watch a DVD movie, try using Xine (it includes menu support) or install VLC (a package and SlackBuild is available here).

VLC is definitely my favorite movie player. Make sure you have libdvdcss2 installed as well, or else your video will be very bad quality (if any video at all).

Xine, Kaffeine, VLC or Mplayer.

Do you want to play a DVD or view the content of a filesystem on DVD?

Several people have suggested ways to play a DVD. If you want to view the contents or filesystem on a DVD then you will first need to mount the dvd. You can mount a DVD via the cli;

Code:

~#mkdir /mnt/your_mount_point
~#mount /dev/Your_DVD /mnt/your_mount_point
~#ls /mnt/your_mount_point      #do a 'man ls' to see options

The latter command will list the files for the filesystem.

You might need to add the -t along with the filesystem type for the mount command. Do a 'man mount' to get more information.

Thank you all. Currently using MPlayer, Alien's last 13.37 Pkg. '20110624-x86_64-1alien.tgz' configures itself. I really like VLC but only ran it in XP. Sadly configuring Xine has proved illusive.
