DVD doesn’t play in LMCD. It plays on the Kubuntu Desktop!
« on: August 27, 2007, 11:38:31 am »
Hi,
I Installed LMCE on an older Test PC and it works so far. Unfortunately I can't play any DVD. The DVD will play on the Kubuntu Desktop using xine, but not in the LMCE Front end. There is no Plug and Play like in the presentation Video.
I used the quikinstall DVD. What has to be done do run DVDs?

thanks,
Hermann

I have no experience with the DVD installer.  But maybe DVD-CSS still needs to be installed?

Same for me, on the core, but when I did a network boot of a Dell inspiron 6000, the DVD drive in that "Media director" was seen and could be played from both boxes.
I could also rip it and play the ripped image from both as well.

I don't really know why the DVD failed to play on the new core.
On my old test install it worked prefectly (and still does).

I recall there being an option regarding DVD playback and encoding during the install.

Of course, I did the Kubuntu install, then installed LinuxMCE from the two CDs

The difference from my old test install and my new (still test) install is that the DVD player is master on the old and slave on the new.
