    playing a dvd on kaffeine


    When i put the dvd into the drive and go to kaffeine and click on the play dvd thing it gives me this message: this version of Xine(used by Kaffeine) has only a reduced set of supported codes. It is not able to play dvds. What do i download to fix this? or just give me the name of a different linux player that can play dvds)

    You can download a new/non-messed with version of xine from here. Install that and it should solve your problems.

    Well, you need at least a DVD cdrom. Writing is not necessary, but it has to be able to read a DVD. Is there a DVD emblem on your drive?

    I think what you need is libdvdcss.

    http://developers.videolan.org/libdvdcss/

    Install that and Kaffine should work.

    BTW... What distro, version, desktop are you running? That always helps.
