    how to play a dvd


    Hai,

    I am trying to mount a dvd but i am getting an error "Media not found". How should I play a dvd?

    When I try to play it directly using xine player it say there is no input plugin to handle dvd?

    Here is fstab information

    # /etc/fstab: static file system information.
    #
    # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass>
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda7 / ext2 defaults,errors=remount-ro 0 1
    /dev/hdc /media/cdrom0 iso9660 ro,user,noauto 0 0
    /dev/hda5 /mnt/WinD vfat ro,uid=sunil,auto 0 0
    /dev/hda6 /mnt/WinE vfat ro,uid=sunil,auto 0 0


    Do I need to make any changes in my fstab?

    Looking forward for a solution

    thanks
    sunil.

    Audio cd, DVD,... cannot be mounted you can read them directly from mediaplayer such as
    MPLAYER, TOTEM, KAFFIENE...

    Failed to play Audio/Video Disc.

    here's the MPLAYER WEB SITE, you'll find all the codec you need, all the tutorials also.

    I installed mplayer and tried playing dvd using mplayer but i got the following message

    Playing dvd://1.
    libdvdread: Could not open device with libdvdcss.
    libdvdread: Can't open /dev/hdd for reading
    Couldn't open DVD device: /dev/hdd


    Exiting... (End of file)

    What missing? Do I need add /dev/hdd to fstab?

    thanks

    Are you sure that you have installed all lidvd packages...

    On my laptop I had to make a symlink to /dev/dvd from /dev/cdrom0 for my multipurpose dvd/cdrw.

    Code:
     cd /dev
    Code:
    mkdir /dev/dvd
    Code:
    ln -s /dev/dvd /dev/cdrom0

    Then set permissions
    Code:
    chmod g+rw /dev/dvd
    That got totem to recognize it right away.

    Also check out http://apt-get.org for more sources foro mplayer and codecs.

    Hi
    I personally prefere Ogle for DVD's (and apt-get install ogle did everything for me)

    Here's a very nice link for Debian desktop users (and it also covers DVD):
