    Problem with Xine DVD Player


    Hello everyone, Im a newb. I have slack 11.0 with kern 2.4.something

    I am haveing trouble playing dvd movies, here are the problems.

    When i insert a dvd it spits it back out. I have to open xine and click dvd, then it closes and opens and closes, then plays the intro on the disc.

    It wont play any further than that. It pops up an error saying:

    Code:
    The source can't be read. Maybe you don't have enough rights for this, or source doesn't contain data.
    I click on the more button and it says:

    Code:
    Audio_decoder: error, unknown buffer type: 01060000
    Audio_decoder: error, unknown buffer type: 04000000
    Audio_decoder: error, unknown buffer type: 010a0000
    video_out: throwing away image with pts 2527515 because its too old (diff : 5173)........
    and goes on and on with the video_out error.

    Here is the dvd player line in my fstab:

    Code:
    /dev/dvd   /mnt/dvd    auto     noauto,users, ro  0  0

    I do have a cdrom as well, the dvd is set to master, the cdrom is set to slave, not sure if that matters.

    I did xine-check and everything turned out fine.

    Will not play as root either.

    I will appreciate any help.

    I think you should install the patch for xine-lib so go to the Slack dvd
    and in a directory called patches/packages install the xine-lib-1.1.3-i686-1_slack11.0 using installpkg xine-lib-1.1.3-i686-1_slack11.0
    hope this help

    ok, I installed that package as root, but i still have the same problem. I will post the entire contents of my fstab to see of there is any problem with that.

    /dev/hda1 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/hda2 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
    /dev/hda3 /usr reiserfs defaults 1 2
    /dev/hda4 /home reiserfs defaults 1 2
    /dev/sda1 /mnt/flash vfat defaults 1 0
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,users,ro 0 0
    /dev/dvd /mnt/dvd auto noauto,users,ro 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,users 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

    I installed the dvd drive today, and when i mount it it will display the contents of the dvd drive. weird.


    Thanks for the help!

    When i mount my cdrom, it actually mounts my dvd.

    I wonder if this is part of the problem.

    Hope this helps.

    Doesn't matter if you're able to see any DVD so it's ok.
    now go to http://linux.softpedia.com/progDownl...nload-165.html
    download the libdvdcss.1.2.9.tar.bz2
    unpack the package in /usr/src using tar -xvjf libdvdcss.1.2.9.tar.bz2
    go into the extracted directory and do :
    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    make
    make install
    ldconfig

    and try now

    hope this help.

    Maybe the symlinks are wrong, which command are you using to mount?

    OK, here is the actual printout from the console.At this point there is a cd in the cdrom and a dvd movie in the dvd drive.


    Code:
    root@eMachine:/mnt# mount /dev/cdrom
    root@eMachine:/mnt# cd cdrom
    root@eMachine:/mnt/cdrom# ls
    audio_ts/  jacket_p/  video_ts/
    root@eMachine:/mnt/cdrom# cd ..
    root@eMachine:/mnt# umount /dev/cdrom
    Now I take the dvd movie out and leave in the cd in the cdrom.

    Code:
    root@eMachine:/mnt# mount /dev/cdrom
    mount: No medium found
    root@eMachine:/mnt# mount /dev/dvd
    mount: No medium found
    Now I take out the cd from the cdrom and put the dvd back in the dvd drive.

    Code:
    root@eMachine:/mnt# mount /dev/dvd
    root@eMachine:/mnt# cd dvd
    root@eMachine:/mnt/dvd# ls
    audio_ts/  jacket_p/  video_ts/
    So basically, the dvd drive is working fine, but the commands that I am using to control the cdrom are controlling the dvd drive as well.

    Here is the partial printout of dmesg:

    I think you may be right about the symlink thing but I know nothing about that yet. One more thing I should mention is that I have the dvd drive jumper on master and the cdrom is set to slave. Here is the fstab just in case.

    Code:
    dev/hda1        swap             swap        defaults         0   0
    /dev/hda2        /                reiserfs    defaults         1   1
    /dev/hda3        /usr             reiserfs    defaults         1   2
    /dev/hda4        /home            reiserfs    defaults         1   2
    /dev/sda1        /mnt/flash       vfat        defaults         1   0
    /dev/cdrom       /mnt/cdrom       auto        noauto,users,ro  0   0

    devpts           /dev/pts         devpts      gid=5,mode=620   0   0
    proc             /proc            proc        defaults         0   0

    Hope this helps.
