DVD player retry on error
« on: March 06, 2008, 05:32:31 am »
While playing a DVD the player will sometimes encounter an issue (scratched DVD, bad data or otherwise) and simply quit rather than trying to bypass the bad part of the disk as most retail players might do.  Is there anything I can do about this inside of LinuxMCE, is this a request I need to make of Xine?

If this is a real DVD, then I suspect something should be fixed inside of xine-lib itself - or even on the libdvdread level (library used by xine for the DVD reading). For the ripped DVDs there is a separate known issue when some keys cannot be retrieved by the DVDCSS and playback of such chapters/titles fails.

this one was actually occurring with a retail dvd.  Thanks for the info, I'll check into the lib you mentioned.
