I am still messing with MPlayer, and am getting closer and closer each day :)

I can now finally (thanks to the gentoo-user list, as well as these forums) compile and actually run the GUI version of mplayer. Although, whenever I try to open a DVD (located in /dev/cdroms/cdrom0), this is the error I get:

Look at mplayer -vo help and mplayer -ao help, I think you're using the wrong video /audio drivers. Just a guess though.

MPlayer needs to be able to decode CSS encryption in order to play DVDs (I wouldn't call a 40-bit XOR, "encryption"... but to each his own).

You have to install libdvdcss, but be forewarned:

Quote:
Decoding CSS without approval and licensing from the media cartels is outlawed in the US. If you live there you're pretty much out of luck unless you want to either break the law, or buy commercial linux DVD software.

You read correctly. If you live in the US, you can not install libdvdcss or you will be commiting a criminal act. You do not have the right to fair use due to a clause in the DMCA concerning the CSS "encryption" on DVD.

(Not that I respect or even acknowledge the validity of bad laws or anything, I just don't want to be skylarov'ed/ghestapo'ed should I decide to visit the US someday.)

If you live in a free country on the other hand, you'll just need to add "dvd" to your USE variable and then emerge mplayer. This will build libdvdcss and libdvdread for DVD support in MPlayer.

I already tried that, and now have both emerged and installed. I get the same result...

Did you umerge mplayer prior to installing libdvdcss? Also, you might check the mailing list archives as there has been a lot of discussion about mplayer on that over the past few days.

Yes, I removed mplayer, added the two libs, then added mplayer again. I checked through the mailing lists and most of that discussion delt with not even getting mplayer to work in GUI mode. Right now, all I can do is get the GUI mode to work, but when I try to play a DVD, I get the above message and the thing stops.

Well, there's this post that indicates that mplayer doesn't play nicely with the 1.0 version of libdvdcss and to use the 0.0.3.3 version of libdvdcss instead.

So, you might try that -- both versions are available as ebuild scripts. You should be able to mask the 1.0 version and 1.1.1 version to force Gentoo to use the 0.0.3.3 version.

Also, I just noticed you never mention what you're using for USE variables. You do have "dvd" defined as a USE variable, right?

Yup, that was the first thing I changed. I added "dvd", remerged mplayer, and noticed that it added the two libs. I then remerged mplayer and I get the same error...

I think I am getting one step closer. I can now open and begin play on a DVD, but I get a huge blue screen that mentions something about the player being in the wrong region for the DVD (it goes by too fast to read). I know this player works on this specific DVD, because I have used it on Windoz many times before...

you need to tell mplayer or xine or ogle or vlc where dev/dvd is (although mplayer says that you dont need to do that) devfs.conf will get you there

just uncoment the part on dvd change the cdrom1 to cdrom0 if you only have 1 cdrom combo device

of course you can also try

cd /dev
ln -s hdc dvd

and see if that helps

in my case you couldnt pay me enough money to use mplayer

Ogle is just too sweet

hope that helped

For me dvd is not so peachy.

Xine won't compile:

video_out_aa.lo Error 1
all-recursive Error 1
all-recursive-am Error 2

Ogle crashes

Mplayer doesn't play sound, the only option is 'null' and the movie is high speed with mega artifacts.
