    Default Re: Mplayer

    Mplayer always does that
    Right click on Mplayer after you open it
    Select preferences->Misc. tab
    In that change your DVD device and if required cdrom device and click ok
    For example, in my pc, my dvd drive is /dev/sr0

    How do you find this out?
    When you insert a dvd in the drive open My Computer on your desktop, right click on the DVD and select properties, click the meta info tab and read what's under "device node".

    Problem solved

    My experience with mplayer is that it doesn't have a 'default' to tell it
    which drive to use for dvd's (or cd's, or...)

    try this:

    mplayer -dvd-device /dev/sr0 dvd://1

    tell it which device to use, and it should play happily. I have two dvd
    burners, so mine are /dev/sr0 and /dev/sr1. If you've the typical single
    drive, try /dev/sr0.

    Hi both

    thanks for the info but when i right click the disc and properties, meta and device node are not there ?
    the disc shows a number which matches the properties disc, the tabs are Basic, Emblems, Permission, Notes, Drive, Volume, with no ref to above.

    I have tried the other suggestion but this does not work. the same error comes up any help would be appreciated thanks
