Sony DVD plays, Warner Bros no play...why?
Xine on Slackware 10
Xine worked perfectly with a Sony DVD without installing
libdvdcss. All I had to do was modify the /root/.xine/config
file so that audio would use /dev/cdrom and the Sony DVD
ran perfectly with excellent sound. So, thinks I, DVD is mine!
I then tried a Warner Bros DVD and absolutely nothing happened
except a nagging "NAV packet error". To solve this I had to
download libdvdcss and install it and do the command "ldconfig".
Now it works.
Could anyone tell me why a Sony DVD would work without
libdvdcss and not the Warner Bros DVD? Does Sony have
something special the other DVD does not?
