Debian Multimedia :: VLC Not Playing DVDs

Feb 2, 2015

VLC used to work fine for me. I ran a DVD in Movie Player and somehow that seems to have broken VLC. Now neither of them work. Starting VLC in the terminal I get this error when trying to read a DVD: [URL]

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Not Playing / But Only Sometimes

Apr 14, 2010

My newly installed (but not new) DVD drive seems to play some movies some days, but others all the time. I'm pretty sure it's just a little picky about scratches. I can hear it in the drive; when I insert the disk, I can tell when it isn't spinning. When it does start spinning, that's when the Media options window pops up asking me what I want to do with the disk.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Not Playing Even After Following Instructions

Jan 28, 2011

Just built a new mini-ITX system. Installed 10.04 x64 and then spiffed it up. Now to play DVDs, I followed instructions here: [URL]. Including the troubleshooting item about chmod / chgrp. I wasn't clear whether this would be saved across reboots. And rebooted.

xxx@atomic-breeze:~$ sudo chmod 660 /dev/sr0
xxx@atomic-breeze:~$ sudo chgrp cdrom /dev/sr0

Unprotected DVDs play just fine. Protected ones give this error:
Why I can't play protected DVDs?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: DVDs Stop Playing About Halfway Through

Nov 13, 2010

I've got this weird problem where my DVDs - just standard netflix DVDs mostly - will stop playing about halfway through. At first I thought it was a problem with the disks, but it has happened far too often now, and I tested one of the disk and it played fine in Windows - though I had to sit through 20 minutes of unskippable ads to check.

I get exactly the same problem regardless of player; I usually use VLC, but VLC, MPlayer, and at least one other all stop in exactly the same place. There's no buffering or freezing or anything, it just stops as if it were the end of the disk, and it always stops at the same time on a disk (not always at the same time on different disks). I can't skip past that point, it's like there is nothing past that point.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Encrypted DVDs Suddenly Stopped Playing / Sort It?

Jun 12, 2010

I'm new to posting around here, but have used this forum for years and always have found a solution via search, but this time I couldn't find anyone with quite the same problem.

I've been using 8.04 on an old laptop for quite a while and have been able to watch encrypted DVDs, as I have installed all the proper drivers.

But suddenly, every time I insert an encrypted DVD, it will mount and I can see the name of it and browse the files, but neither MPlayer nor VLC will play it.

I know the drive works, because if I boot into XP I can watch them there.

I already tried reinstalling the drivers and am out of ideas.

Ubuntu :: DVDs Still Not Playing?

Feb 18, 2011

I have still not succeeded in getting my Region 2 DVDs to play in Ubuntu 10.04. I used something called Regionset to reset the player from zero to 2 for playback in the UK but although it is now set to Region 2 it will only play Region 0 DVDs. I have tried all sorts of tricks with codecs and installing VLC and (of course) Ubuntu Restricted Extras but no joy.

Fedora :: Playing DVDs - Downloading Required Codecs?

Jan 17, 2011

I recently installed fedora and enjoying learning what it can do. One of the things that I wanted to do was play DVDs. I installed vlc and the libvdreader package but am unable to play DVDs. I even used "movie player", and the program said, fedora does not have the right codecs to play the DVD. Does anybody know what I need to do? And what codecs that I need to download if any?

Software :: Xine And VLC Not Playing DVDs - Input Plugin?

I have just installed SuSE 11.4 and find that xine and VLC cant play DVDs. xine reports:'input plugin cannot open MRL [dvd:/]' and then 'cannot find input plugin for MRL [dvd:/]'. Plainly I've either forgotten to install something, or somethings' permissions are wrong.

Debian Multimedia :: Preferred Format To Rip DVDs To?

Handbrake defaults to .mp4 but can also rip to .mkv. I'm not sure which to use. I like to rip CDs to .flac if that gives you any idea of what I'm trying to achieve.

Debian Multimedia :: Encrypted DVDs Are Not Recognized Upon Insertion

Jun 21, 2015

I have Debian Jessie installed. When I insert a non-encrypted DVD movie DVD into the drive, a pop-up menu appears asking me what I want to do (e.g. "Open with vlc media player, etc.).

When I insert an encrypted DVD movie DVD into the drive, no pop-up menu appears.

I am able to play the encrypted movie DVD in vlc, and libdvdcss2 is installed. So my question is not about playing the DVD but rather about the failure to automatically detect it.

This behaviour happens in Gnome, Mate, and XFCE. (KDE has a Plasma Device Notifier Widget that is able to detect the encrypted DVD).

My other computer with Debian Wheezy is able to automatically recognize the encrypted DVD.

Here are the relevant lines from /var/log/syslog after the insertion of the encrypted DVD:

Code: Select allJun 21 14:52:04 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2012.208964] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE

[Code] ....

Here are the relevant lines from /var/log/syslog after the insertion of the non-encrypted DVD:

Code: Select allJun 21 14:55:39 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2226.518955] UDF-fs: INFO Mounting volume 'Check Please', timestamp 2009/06/02 17:43 (1e5c)

Whan I run the mount command after inserting the non-encrypted DVD the following line appears in the output:

Code: Select all/dev/sr0 on /media/daniel/Check Please type udf (ro,nosuid,nodev,relatime,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=77,iocharset=utf8,uhelper=udisks2)

Granted, this issue is not a major problem as I can start vlc and play the DVD. However, it might be useful to some new users to Linux to have the pop-up menu appear. Additionally, it would be interesting to learn why it works in Debian Wheezy and not in Debian Jessie.

Debian Multimedia :: VCDs Do Not Play - Drives Otherwise Work Very Well - Also Write DVDs And CDs Often

May 8, 2010

I have one desktop and two laptops. It is strange to find that none of the three systems play VCD, when I use Totem, Totem-xine, Gxine or VLC media player, even with the codecs updated. Worse, each of the three DVD players then act in a loop, seeking the LG DVD-RAM drive endlessly. But the drives otherwise work very well and I also write DVDs and CDs often.I have tested the VCDs in Windows machines with VLC media player, and the VCDs work wonderfully. This is kind of strange. So I thought may be I should report this.

Debian Multimedia :: No Sound When Playing In Mpd

Aug 15, 2011

when I use mpd with pulseaudio, I get no sound but clients appear to be playing (ncmpcpp and gmpc). Other players such as vlc or mplayer work just fine.If I go under the mixer, I get "no application is currently playing or recording audio" under the "Applications" tab when playing through mpd. In contrast, when I'm using mplayer or vlc, both show up in that tab. It behaves as though pulse is simply not configured to work with mpd.

Debian Multimedia :: Minidlna Not Playing MP4 Videos To TV

Jan 17, 2015

I am trying to setup a media server running Debian 7.8 and the minidlna 1.0.24. My TV is a Toshiba 50L7300UC and can play music and show images via the DLNA. It will play .mkv videos too, but when I try to play an .mp4 video it says "Unsupported file". If I put the same .mp4 video onto a USB and plug that into the TV, the TV plays it no problem.

When testing streaming to my phone, everything works (music, pictures, MKV and MP4 videos).

How I can get the MP4 videos to stream to my TV?

Debian Multimedia :: Playing From ISO - Correct Menu Settings

Jul 17, 2010

I have some DVD's that I've saved to my comp as an ISO, in Ubuntu they would play fine in Movie Player or VLC, but I've just tried to play one on Debain Lenny and I have the following issues.

Movie Player:
Will play the video but wont bring up the main menu so that I can select which episode that I want. It won't even skip to the next one, it just starts playing the first.

So I then though I'd down the trusted ol' VLC. VLC brings up the main menu but I can't select any thing. It just sits there and playing the menu screen for a bit and my mouse clicks seem to have know effect (except double clicking to change to full screen). Then it starts playing the first one, if I try to skip it goes back to the main menu and starts all over again.
This particular issue I sometimes had in Ubuntu with Movie Player (depending on the ISO) but VLC would still play it fine.

Just got VLC to run the menu correctly by doing the following:
File => Open Capture Device => File Tab => Browse to the file, select it. => Click OK.
I don't really want to have to do this every time I want to watch a video. Does any one know of a setting that will do this when ever I click on the ISO to play it?
