Thread: audio cd and dvd playback error

  1. #1

    Default audio cd and dvd playback error

    I am having difficulty with playing back movie dvd's and audio cd's. I recieve this error from trying to playback X-Men3 in vlc.

    Playback failure:
    DVDRead could not open the disk "/dev/sr0".
    Your input can't be opened:
    VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///dev/sr0'. Check the log for details.
    I have libdvdcss and w32codec-all... mplayer, smplayer, vlc, xine, xine plugins...

    I can explore the dvd in konqueror and the vob files are reconized as files to be played. However If i click to play nothing will open/happen.


    Dvd playback worked in suse 11. So I am fresh ooout of ideas.

    This is a known issue and there appears to be a bug report out on it too.

    I'm not sure where it is all up to at the moment.

    I have had the same problem for the past few days... After much searching this seems to have resolved the problem for me...

    What is that rpm and how does it relate to the problem? and does it matter if I am using suse 11.1 x64?


    Sorry, I like to make sure I have an idea of what I am installing first.

    I had this problem too. The quickest temporary fix is to add users who need to be able to access the dvd writer/rom to the group 'disk', then logout and log back in.

    I added my user to the "audio", "disk" and "cdrom" groups, now I'm able to listen to audio cd.

    Would it be safe to assume that if I wait a while that there will a update that will fix this so I do not have to modify anything?

    I just don't want to modify something on my system that is not necessary and then officially gets addressed later. If you know what I mean.

    so I did the

    added my user to the "audio", "disk" and "cdrom" groups

    And now it works... Thanks for the help guys.


    Hopefully there will be an update that takes care of this. I don't know how many people are comfortable dealing with User/Group management.
