Please give more details about what exactly you are trying to do, the application you are using and the error message that you get.

Hi,

I had the same problem and came across this site:

http://www.plainfaqs.org/linux/dvdplay/

Worked like a bomb for me.

Hope you come right.

Well I don't know what you did because this doesn't work for me -- DVD playing is the ONE app that I can't get anywhich way to even think of working on 9.3.

Get Error reading NAV packet or errors such as libdvdread errors.

For example trying to play a typical commercial DVD (Region 2)

ibdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.8 for DVD access

*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in ifo_read.c:1729 ***
*** for pgci_ut->nr_of_lus < 100 ***


*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in ifo_read.c:1608 ***
*** for pgcit->nr_of_pgci_srp < 10000 ***


*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in ifo_read.c:649 ***
*** for pgc->nr_of_programs <= pgc->nr_of_cells ***


*** libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in ifo_read.c:667 ***
*** for pgc->program_map_offset != 0 ***


So what did you actually DO to get it to work

I can't believe out of all the silly things I haven't been able to get working this is the only APP that just won't work for me. Everything else including wireless works fine.

cheers

On suse 9.1 I installed mplayer from source by following the instructions in the readme, works perfectly. (You don't need libdvdcss for mplayer)

How do you play encrypted DVD's then (most DVD's these days unless they are region 0 are encrypted and need some CSS descrambling to make them work).

Actually SUSE 9.1 was the last release where I could get XINE to play DVD's properly but I needed to upgrade for all sorts of other reasons.

Cheers

Libdvdread and libdvdcss are part of the mplayer sources, so they don't need to be installed separately.

EDIT: Note that there are precompiled mplayer rpm on packman.iu-bremen.de/suse , even for 10.0!

HORRAY --- 10 Beta 4 it finally WORKS.

Still no joy with 9.3 -- Maybe I'll skip 9.3

I haven't been able to break Beta 4 yet -the best yet.

Well, after installing suse10.0 beta4, it seems everything is O.K. Only I can not play DVDs anymore. I could play them on SUSE9.3(encrypted) I can not play them here. Trying to find where the problem is.

The problem is most probably libdvdcss (see above). You need to install this library, or use a player that is compiled with it. Have a look at http://packman.links2linux.org/?action=122 for good instruction on the installation. You can also download mplayer from this site.

It might be a bit late but I have made my own script for SuSE 9.2 to play encrypted dvd's it may work for 9.3 as well all though not tested on it, It will download the neccessary files from my server, but you can download from another location if you like and then place them with this script in the same directory. I only have a adsl connection which is rather slow so may take some time.

Some feed back on it would be great

#!/bin/sh
#
#
# To play encrypted dvd's for suse 9.2, may work for other distros, will need to change
# the `hdparm -d1 /dev/cdrecorder` to what ever your distro names it dvd drive too.

After wrestling with NVIDIA drivers, DVD works great on SuSE 9.2 and now on my 9.3 box.
