should I use the -dvdauth option, if this is an encrypted dvd? because the first DVD I tried, wasn't encrypted, and worked just fine...but now with this encrypted one, it's having problems with. no audio...

maybe your dvd is poorly mastered. try my lsdvd program to see eactly what is on the disc... http://acidrip.thirtythreeandathird.net/lsdvd.html you can then select the audio stream directly with the -aid option followed by the number of the stream you want from lsdvd, with 128 added to it. or just try 128, 129 etc...

by the way...it's a lot smoother if I run
-vo x11 instead of

-vo sdl

any ideas why?

LOL.


addition:

woa, it's funny. my computer is bearly reading the DVD-rom!, when I wathc the dvd in Windows it reads it constantly, and the hardrive is also running a lot in Windows!,
with Mplayer it's almost like if nothing was happening! at least for most of time,

it's a different video output. horses for courses. the video output is given to the external sdl library quite early on in it's life, so sdl has to do all the rescaling itself, which doesn't always come out as good as could be expected, esp when the OSD is used, that just looks awful. SDL is extremely flexibe though, automatically detecting possible video and sound outputs etc...

Is that really the symlink you created?

I'd probably do it a bit differently myself. I'd find the actual device my DVD is, then make the symlink to the actual device, rather than to a directory???

No need to mount it Z, go ahead, umount the disc, then see where your actual device lives. Whatever it is, whether it's /dev/scd0 /dev/hdc or whatever, make the symlink that way:
ln -sf /dev/hdc /dev/dvd replacing the /dev/hdc with your actual device.

Also, try other vo's: mplayer -vo help to display em all.

Cool

i never actually read that. i'd assume that it was /dev/cdrom..... probably better to link it from the hdX block entry rather than an existing symlink. never healthy to chain the together when it's not needed.

I just got Mplayer complied and love it, no problems with playing videos off my hardrive. When it come to the DVD though, I just linked to /dev/dvd/ like you guys said, now it gives me a "Can't open VMG info!" when I use the option through the GUI to "Play DVD" ... now Im confused, can anyone help? Thanks guys....

OK, thanks, Im a big goober, I wasnt mounting the dang DVD drive, but now that I mounted it, Im having frame buffer problems....I think this is due to to the fact I am trying to run the DVD from the GUI....I am going to try to get a little tricky with it and set up some command line things....any recomendations...or am I just rambling, thanks.

Heres exactly what it spits out through the GUI:

DEMUXER: Too many (4096 in 8238638 bytes) video packets in the buffer!

I tried forcing the non-interleaced option using -ni on the command line, but it still does it, I can hear choppy video, but I get no picture, or just a couple scrambled pictures.....Hope this makes the problem a little more clear. Thanks for the response acid, and for putting up with my newbie idiocity.....
