    Mplayer

    I have just installed Mplayer.
    I like the feel of it but i have some problems..

    When i run mplayer -dvd 1

    it says

    it then takes ages to come back with an image which is crap, hard to make out anyhting and no sound at all.

    Any mplayer gurus out there?

    Thanks

    I don't even personally own a DVD drive. Don't have any experience with playing DVD's under linux at all.

    Unfortunately, open-source DVD UNencryption is "illegal" in this country. DeCSS is what it's known as, check out 2600.com about it sometime. I would suppose it's possible to get your hands on it, google would be my first stop.

    Re:Mplayer

    I though libdvdcss was meant to do the unencryption?

    I have managed to get good ol Ogle working. Looks good and sounds good. I switched DMA on and it makes a big difference.

    Strange with the Ogle gui though, i have the rpm, installed it, no errors or deps and when i start Ogle i never get a gui?

    I had Ogle on 7.2 and it was always fine, gui wise.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    This looks to be your problem.

    Before you compile MPlayer, you should install libdvdcss-0.0.3.ogle3.tar.gz and libdvdread-0.9.2.tar.gz. This will allow you to play DVD with really good quality, and good speed. The speed comes from using the xv, mga, xmga driver.
