Follow Me - DVD
« on: October 02, 2007, 04:10:48 pm »
Hi All,

Just wondering if this should be possible or wether I'm trying to do something that LMCE wasnt designed for. I have a Core/MD combo and a second MD in another room. Each MD can can play DVD's locally. What I want to be able to do though is start watching a DVD in room 1 and then use the follow me to continue watching it in room 2, however when I try I get a pop-up saying "cannot read encrypted dvd, probably DVDCSS isnt installed". However it is (and must be as i can play it locally).

Any ideas?

Sounds like you have not got DVDCSS installed on the MD you are moving the DVD playback too

I agree, thats what it sounds like, but im fairly sure its not...unless I'm missing something,

In the Add-software screen DVDCSS has a big green tick next to it (in both core and MD) and

apt-get install libdvdcss2 says the currently installed version is the latest, same with apt-get install libdvdread3. (again, from the director Im moving from and to)

So...can I take it from your reply that it "should" be possible?

absolutely, try re-adding the dvdcss software...click on it, to remove it, then click again, to add it.

I agree it looks like it should be installed ok... sometimes the 'Add software' screen does not tell the truth... so tis worth running it again from there. Another thing to try is run the following script from the console;

sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/install-css.sh

hope this helps!

Strange one this....Its just that DVD, i tried a different one and it works fine. For some reason it doesnt read the DVD name of this particular DVD which seems to confuse it somehow.

Thanks for the input anyway.

sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/install-css.sh

Fixed the problem for me. Thanks
