DVD Styler can't generate preview

Hi there,

I am running DVD Styler on Mint 16 Cinnamon 64bits, I created a short video with 3 MP4, and generated the ISO but can't preview, no detail it just said can't do it, I can playback the MP4 so it is not a Codec problem, I used the same app may be earlier version on Ubuntu without problem, any idea ?

I finally fixed that. The default preview player is xine but I've not installed, so I change to vlc, but vlc does not accept the command line, so I install xine-ui, but xine-ui is not the actual name of the application so it won't run, I've to remove '-ui' in order to generate the preview, much confusing.

I use tovid for making dvds out of video files. It works great. I use vlc or mplayer to preview my creation before burning to disc. If the directoey of my dvd filesystem is dvd01 for example, I can preview it with

vlc dvd01/

mplayer dvd://1 -dvd-device dvd01/
The 1 in red is the title number you wish to play. Replace 1 with the desired title number to play


mplayer dvdnav:// -mouse-movements -dvd-device dvd01/
Instead of selectting a title number to play, you can use this code to navigate the titles or chapters to play.
