dvd and cdrom


I'm trying to play DVD's on my computer with Ogle, but I don't really understand how to link my /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd files and how to mount my DVD drive each time I boot up. I've created the /dev/dvd file, and I know I've got to do the rest in the /etc/fstab file, but I'm not really sure how to do it.
Any help would be appreiciated.

Thanks.

What distribution are you running?

Okay, the easies way to deal with this, is that instead of selecting, Open Disc, just select
Open, and then go to your /mnt/cdrom

and select the /mnt/cdrom folder. Then the DVD will automagically play into the DVD menu.

if you only have a DVD-drive in your computer, I'm sure your mount foler will be /mnt/cdrom

It depends on what distribution you have, but usually the drive is automagically mounted in Redhat. However, if you need to mount it yourself, just type at the command line:

mount /mnt/cdrom

that should do the trick.
I hope this helps,

you know acid_kewpie, I totally agree with you that mplayer is much better, but Ogle is easier to install and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it, and it has complete DVD menu, angle change, etc.. features, just like any Windows DVD playing software. So, for DVD play back purposes, I think it is at least as good as Mplayer.

Alternatively... install both! That way you get both shiny things and flexibility!

(I don't have Ogle/Xine installed )
