Brand New DVD Error (I cannot get Xine to play DVDs)


I've yet to be able to watch DVDs in Linux. I have a DVD drive that can read the DVDs.

When I try playing the DVD in Mplayer, I get nothing.
Code:
Playing dvd://1.
Reading disc structure, please wait...
There are 5 titles on this DVD.
There are 34 chapters in this DVD title.
There are 1 angles in this DVD title.
libdvdread: Invalid title IFO (VTS_01_0.IFO).
Cannot open the IFO file for DVD title 1.

Exiting... (End of file)
When I tried in Xine, I used to get something similar. However, now, when I try to watch my DVDs (I'm testing this with American History X), I get to see the opening sequence; i.e., the "New Line Home Entertainment" message. This gets printed to the term:
Code:
libdvdread: Get key for /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.VOB at 0x0000013a

libdvdread: Get key for /VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_0.VOB at 0x000028a0

libdvdread: Elapsed time 0

libdvdread: Elapsed time 1
libdvdnav: ifoRead_TITLE_VOBU_ADMAP vtsi failed - CRASHING
And I get graphical error message: "The source can't be read. Maybe you don't have enough rights for this, or source doesn't contain data (e.g.: not disc in drive). (Error reading NAV packet.)"

In order to rule out the 'rights' option, I tried playing the DVD as root; I got the same results.

If any of you could help me watch DVDs under Linux, I would greatly, greatly appreciate it.

compile and install libdvdcss, and you should be fine.Xine is unable to read encrptyed DVD's by default, due to licensing issues, but installing the de-css library will take care of that .

I downloaded and compiled from source libdvdcss 1.2.8 and xine-lib-1-rc7 and the DVD still didn't get past the 'opening' video. I then downloaded and compiled from source libdvdread 0.9.4; no success after that, either. One thing I noticed with libdvdread was that the Freshmeat page for it says the package has not been updated in over three years; if new DVDs have new encryption methods, how can a program that hasn't been updated in over three years crack them? I couldn't find a newer version that 0.9.4, though.

Also, on my Matrix Revolutions DVD, Xine can't even play the opening.

Edit: Mplayer still doesn't even play the opening video on any of my DVDs, by the way.

regarding the supposed new encryption, is this true? How do older home dvd players play dvd's if a new decrytion method is needed? I can read the newest Matrix without any problem, as well as Shrek 2, and several other new movies.

maybe one of these will help:

Thanks for your help, but it's still not working for me. I followed the Linux.com guide fully and get the same error I did before. I read through the majority of the hits on Google for the first five or so pages of the search (until the results began losing relevancy).. I was led to load the udf module and that didn't fix the problem either. :\

looks like your setup can't unencrypt the DVD. Does this happen with all DVDs?

It does happen with all DVDs, and I would agree that my setup can't decrypt DVDs if I hadn't been able to access the opening sequence of American History X.

If it's any help, I decided to tail -f my syslog as I attempt to play a DVD with xine. This is the output:

When I attempt to play a DVD with mplayer:
Code:

Don't know if that helps any of you diagnose the problem... Sure doesn't do anything for me. :\

I saw in another thread dealing with DVDs that xine can be used with the --verbose argument to make the output, well, more verbose.

Here's the output of 'xine --verbose' after I click "DVD":

Looks like "libdvdcss error: css error: ioctl_ReadCopyright failed, make sure there is a DVD in the drive, and that you have used the correct device node." may be my problem.

What would cause libdvdcss to error out like that?

Footnote: I had the same errors as root, so this is not a permission problem.

i am not sure this is really going to help, but if you are willing to give it a try i know this works and works well with all kinds of DVDs both old and new:

http://www.sunstatemartialarts.com/debian_media.html

this is a walk though on how to install and configure a Debian Sarge distro to be a media box. this setup goes all the way to include setting up the s-video on an Nvidia card along with setting up the desktop manager (KDE in this case) the media player (Kaffeine) how to configure the codec, everything.

as for your errors, if you have the libdvdcss(or libdvdcss2 depending on your distro) and the win32 codec pack i have no other solution then to ask you to read the above link and see if that might help a bit.

best of luck.
