Xine will not play my dvds.
I have Mandrake 10.1 installed on my machine. I can not play dvds, in eather Xine or cafine. I get error messages for store bought dvds saying no plugin available to handle dvd eather MLR syntax is wrong or file stream doesn't exist. Is there somewhere I could find plugins or install a player that will fix this issue?
I did have one other question that is related to this. I have a ATI all in Wonder video card however I am not able to feed my tv into the system. It recognizes it as a video card but not as a tv card. Are there any drivers or fixes for this. If not is there a tv card that will work with linux..

By default, Xine doesn't play protected DVD's (which means most of them). You have to find a file on the net, I can't remember the exact file. Go to xinehq and look around.

do you have libdvdcss?

That's the one! Try finding libdvdcss (or libdvdcss2), it is not on the SuSE servers (at least, it wasn't a month ago) but I'm not sure about Mandrake (on the suse site, they say that you can't watch protected dvd's at all, which is not true).
