Problem watching dvd in mplayer


Hi,

I have installed mplayer - it works fine for mp3, mpeg etc. But I have a problem watching dvd movies. Let me explain, what I find.

There are 3 titles in the dvd. Title 1 and 2 are some trials, advertisements etc. Each of the titles has 3 or 4 chapters. Title 3 is where the actual movie begins. When I start the gmplayer (gui mplayer) and click play, it plays the title 1 and stops. It does not play the remaining titles.

Any idea?

Hi,

To trickykid: I used the gmplayer (gui version of mplayer) without any parameters.

To elp: If I type mplayer -dvd 3 or your command mplayer dvd://3 then the movie is played correctly. Do I have to check for titles each time I bring in a new DVD?

For your info, following are the screen output when I type the above command, if that is of any help! What are those warning messages that comes up "Compiled with Runtime CPU Detection - WARNING - this is not optimal!" ? I simply installed this mplayer using Mandrake 9.2 distribution CD.

Thanks for your time and assistance.

basically it says you should compile MPlayer yourself, not just install from the cd's. it'll run faster if you do, especially with dvds.
