Title: playing videos from a cd or dvd-r
Post by: erez on May 30, 2007, 04:33:38 pm
hi

if i insert and original dvd movie, lmce autoplays it
however, if i have some avi or mpeg files recorded on a dvd-r, when i insert it, lmce tells me it detected a disk, but does not play it.

how do i play video files from a dvd-r which is not in a dvd comaptible format ?

10x,
erez.

you should copy them in /home/public/data/videos. then, you'll see them in Video box, in the interface.

because only the dvd's can be played in this way, for the moment.

that's a big party pooper. it means i need a keyboard to watch a movie ...

if someone can tell me where in the code it handles DVDs, i'll try to see if i can fix this.
