    mplayer and dvd


    hi i've got a trouble with play dvd in mplayer when i open it form console :
    mplayer dvd://1 i get the response:
    Playing dvd://1.
    Reading disc structure, please wait...
    There are 3 titles on this DVD.
    There are 12 chapters in this DVD title.
    There are 1 angles in this DVD title.
    libdvdread: Invalid IFO for title 1 (VTS_01_0.IFO).
    Cannot open the IFO file for DVD title 1.
    Try adding "echo 1024 > /proc/sys/dev/rtc/max-user-freq" to your system startupscripts.
    when i try add "echo... i get:
    no such file or directory..

    try ogle instead, it's designed for dvd's, keep mplayer just for video file playing

    have you tried using different video output codecs? you can do that in ~/.mplayer/config and you'll need to add vo=xv into it, try using either xv, x11, gl, gl2, if that doesn't work i'd recommend you compile it from source so that it matches your hardware setup and isn't trying to run an i686 compiled binary on an i386 processor or something like that

    I never could get mplayer to work with commercial DVDs. Finally gave up and used xine instead.

    you don't need a skin for mplayer, i use it by itself and keyboard control it, since this isn't specific to mplayer or dvds and also can't play video files i'm not sure what to suggest, other than to make sure you have graphics card drivers installed and configured, but then it should work even on vesa
