I can see the output from ls -l /dev/cdrom and ls -l /dev/hdc but not from ls -l /dev/dvd. Do you actually have a DVD drive?

looks like you need

ln -s /dev/hdc /dev/dvd

then don't mount it

Could it have something to do with the DMA problems that RedHat has with CD-ROM drives?

It may do, can you please now post the output of "ls -l /dev/dvd"?
And do you have scsi emulation set for that drive?

And how can you check to see if you have SCSI emulation enabled on a specific drive? Thanks for all the help, and taking the time to help me out...I appreciate it.

Ok, can you remember reading a post earlier in the thread saying not to link to /mnt/cdrom? You can? Great! Here's how to fix that little problem in three easy steps (all of it as root - except for step 3).
1) Do "rm /dev/dvd"
2) Do " ln -s /dev/hdc /dev/dvd"
3) Try playing your dvd again.
For scsi emulation you need to have a line that says 'hdc=ide-scsi' in your lilo/grub conf file.

NICE, Video is a little choppy with Mplayer, so Im working on optimizing for that, but the Ogle works just fine as far as I can tell, just dont know how to stop it from fast forwarding....but then again it is the first time I have had it run without crashing.....

THANKS EVERYONE!!

Choppy video is probably caused by the rh8 no dma issue, if you google for rh8 and dma you'll find a fix.

well, actually, try mplayer with the -vo x11 option. That should reduce choppiness.

The new Ogle is not choppy at all, which I'm very happy with. The only bug in Ogle, is that the Stop button doesn't work, heheheh.
And...I can only run it on one of my computers, cuz it's the only one with an acceptable versipn of gblic 2.3+,
I really need to get that upgraded on this computer!

Mine is choppy in Ogle, and in Mplayer, it gives me an error that my computer isnt fast enough or something like that....I have a Pentium3 733 with 256 MB RAM.....I dont think I need faster...I think its the DMA problems....working on it, if anyone knows the best route....Im sure myself and at least a few other slow people like myself would appreciate any help....Thanks for all your time.

depends on the video output etc... add -framedrop as an option and it should run a lot smoother, you can vary your demands on mplayer so much you do need to be aware what you are asking of it really. for example the xv input is much much much faster and less resource hungry than the x11 one ...

OK, well I added the DMA line that everyone says to add to modules.conf, and I run mplayer with -framedrop....doesnt help, still choippy as before...I cant seem to find what my problem would be, I even downloaded the ati.2 libraries and modules from GATOS because they said they would speed up my DVD playback and stuff. I have an All-In-Wonder 128 Pro card (dont laugh) if that helps.

Talking Xine no work - can't see DVD files

I'm setting up Xine for a friend. It is installed okay with D4D plugin but when I try to play a DVD it says it cannot find the vob files.

If I look at the DVD in Konqueror I can see -

Filename Size Type
? 2.0 KB Directory
???? 20.5 KB JPEG
????? 4.2 KB HTML

But if I look at the DVD in my own PC I can see all the vob files etc.
Is this a region problem, or maybe even a dvd driver problem?
