DVD menu problems


I've some problems by DVD player such as gmplayer, xine, kplayer. All programs not show dvd film menu (it's a external usb dvd device); libdvdcss, nav and read are installed. Actually to choose favourite language I must skip each traks, than see film. So make it nervous.

Each player has its way to access the menu.

For (g)mplayer :
gmplayer dvdnav:// -mouse-movements -nocache -dvd-device device_or_file

And the keypad enter key is for selecting mouse choosen item menu.

For other player I don't remenber. Just look at the man or help for them.

In general it works for me. But for some DVDs there could be wrong language.

Be sure to hit the return key from the keypad to activate menus.

At least before some test from Mplayer, Gmplayer, Kplayer, Smplayer, Xine, the only winner is Xine. It's manage DVD menu correctly .

Back when I used DVDs, I found mplayer (and its frontends) never supported DVD menus very well. I think I always used VLC. But I haven't had a DVD player in my computers for probably 8 years, so I haven't had a need to use a program with support for DVD menus for years.

One problem with Bluray menus is the SlackBuild for libbluray, where it says

Code:
  --disable-bdjava \
  --disable-bdjava-jar \
I did build my own with "enable" when I needed it, but in the long run it is too maintenance-intensive to modify standard packages.

It's not nearly as hard to modify standard packages once the stable release comes out. I don't imagine 15.0 will have any updates for libbluray unless there's some security concern that comes up with whatever version stays in 15.0 (currently 1.3.0).
