That's xine or mplayer for you?

And could you please cut down that signature a bit?
Maybe put the links into your public bookmarks, and
just a reference to those in your sig? :)


Cheers,
Tink

I don't know about you - but I don't mount VCDs
and try to access the files on them... I start up xine
and press the VCD-button and away it goes.


Cheers,
Tink

You can also copy the .dat file to your hard drive and rename it .mpeg, or is it .mpg, and it'll play...just a little trick i learned soas not to have to reencode vcd's to svcd's

have fun.

oh, and Tinkster is right....

There's a few possibilities here ...

a) The CD-ROM drive doesn't like the disc
b) The permissions on the burnt files are wrong
c) The medium is stuffed ...
...

Just a cheesy workaround here....

got another box u can put the disk in then mount the cdrom on the other box via samba?

Sometimes cheese works lol.

Also, how old is the cdrom you're putting it in...tinkster has a valid point with the cd being packed...sometimes svcd's i've seen are overburned at over 800 megs. A non-multiread, or even an old multiread cdrom probably wouldn't read it at all(they're even tweeky about regular burnt disks).
