You should not need to do that :? libdvdcss is for decrypting the encryption keys with some dvd films. the last time i played with RH os all you needed to do to watch dvds was simply install libdvdcss and bingo start xine enjoy :D of course it helps with mplayer installed (or just the dep's ie transcode, mencoder etc) now a days i simply apt-get install libdvdcss && mplayer and jobs done :D


Hi RD

The way my FC4 was set up by default was to have the "Play video DVD disks when inserted" (in Preferences) unchecked, so when I put a DVD in the drive it prevented it from autoplaying. I had to manually open up xine and then click on the DVD button to get it to play. I went into Preferences and checked the box - which, as totem was already entered, meant that program would automatically play DVDs, which I didn't want, so I substituted xine for totem.

That's what I was referring to above - setting up DVDs to autoplay in your favourite program, which is a separate issue from libdvdcss. :D

Cheers

Hi eastcoastdrifter

Glad you got xine sorted.

I'm not very good with computer sound, I'm afraid (apart from that one occasion when I was able to help you because by a strange coincidence I'd had the same problem and by some fluke found the answer !). Don't even understand it in Windows. I tend to use a conventional hi-fi for listening to music rather than the computer !!

Are you missing sound generally, ie even in xine (can't be much fun watching DVDs with no audio)? Or is it just in audio specific applications?

Hopefully someone else might be able to give you a steer on this.

You've done the hardest part. Have an extra ginger biscuit with your cup o' char tonight...on me :D

I will indeed, thanks. I'll send you the bill.

I can just about string both parts of my name together

But doesn't "east", "coast" and "drifter" equal three parts of a name? :D

Cheers

Marrea,
Good news, sound is there. It said something about no card identified, I usually rely on the on-board stuff, even in Windows, it does all I want. However, the precious baby that Linux is...if that's what it wants...that's what it can have. Popped one in and wahey, AC/DC 'It's A Long Way To The Top (if you wanna rock 'n' roll) VERY robust.

I think (IMHO) the sound via Linux does sound better than Windows, don't know why, but there you go.

So, all in all a good start to a couple of weeks holiday.
And, I only said you could have an extra ginger biscuit...don't you go going to one of those twee Chiltern Scone & T-Shop's! I don't want an astronomical bill ariving at Chez Robinson, thank you very much :?

See you all in a couple of weeks.

Kind regards, Pete :P :o :lol: :D :wink:
