    DVD movied and music player not working


    Dear all,

    It seems to me that Linux Mandriva 2009 powerpack does not recognise normal DVD. It does not play movies nor music.
    I cannot sort this issue out.
    Nonetheless, the programme seems to work fine. It seems to be a problem regarding DVD recognition or file extension and compatibility.
    Can you help me out with this?

    Thanks in advance

    I never use mandriva But I think VLC player can solve ur problem. It can play almost everything. Run this command from terminal.

    #uprmi.update -a
    #urpmi libebml
    #urpmi vlc

    Have you installed libdvdcss? That is required to playback commercial DVDs.
