    Default Can not get DVD apps to play DVD


    When trying to open up a DVD in either MPlayer or Kaffiene I get an
    error:

    MPlayer:
    Error Opening/Initializing the selected video_out(-vo) device.

    Kaffeine:
    This version of Xine (used by Kaffeine) has only a reduced
    set of supported codecs. It is not able to play DVDs.
    Read XINE - openSUSE for further details.

    I do have disk and cdrom privileges marked on my account. That was
    initially a problem when the burning software would not recognize the
    drives.

    Also now, after ripping and burning 1 DVD K9Copy overloads everything
    and the machine slows down to a crawl, then freezes up right when you
    start ripping a CD.

    Does anyone have any ideas?? Thanks!

    Looks like you have two problems;

    Open mplayer Rmouse/preference/video and change the driver. I am using
    xv. Try all of them
    That may solve the mplayer problem.

    Kaffeine is complaining of not having all the codecs. You can add them
    iirc the file is called win32codecs also you need libdvdcss

    If you have packman repository checked you should be able to get those
    or a version of Kaffeine without the restrictions.

    Next time mark which version of opensuse you're running so I can be
    more clear with pointers.

    I am using OpenSUSE 11.1 with KDE 4.1

    I do have the packman repository in Yast, the win31codec_all
    downloaded, and the libdvdcss. You said IIRC, is this different than
    using Yast? If so I would need a bit of guidance.

    I changed the video driver to X11 and got it running, but whenever it
    starts it says: "Warning MVs not available". Also the sound is
    extremely low. I checked in Amaroke and it is louder.

    Also with k9copy I just think it did not like the DVD it was being fed,
    I put in another DVD and it is back to normal. I am assuming that it
    has a problem decoding it?

    Kaffeine won't play DVDs for me either. My situation seems identical to
    yours, 2quick. I have openSUSE 11.1, KDE 4.1, libdvdcss, win32 codec,
    and packman all fired up and ready to go. But I still get the limited
    playback message from Kaffeine.

    Do

    Code:
    --------------------
    rm /usr/share/doc/packages/xine/README.SuSE
    --------------------

    or

    Code:
    --------------------
    zypper -v in -r packman kaffeine
    --------------------

    like you prefer.

    Sorry to be talking in 2 threads, that why I opened up the other one
    and was going to add a link to it for magicnosegoblin. But just to get
    things straight in my head.

    Am I thinking right..running the zypper is just updating Kaffeine to
    the newer version that supports the playback. I am not sure what
    removing the readme does. I went in and read it, but unsure of what
    removing it is doing. Thanks RedDwarf!!

    Thanks!
    The line

    Code:
    --------------------
    zypper -v in 'kaffeine > 0.8.7-1.105'
    --------------------

    worked for me!

    I followed the above instructions and trying to play a DVD in Kaffeine
    gives me this: "Source can't be read. Maybe you don't have enough
    rights for this or source doesn't contain data (e.g. no disc in drive).
    (/dev/dvd/)" If I copy the DVD to my HDD in Windows I am able to access
    the VOB files via Kaffeine. I must access each one individually and the
    DVD menu is not available. When the VOB has completed, it does not
    continue to the next VOB.

    Try this in Konsole:

    Code:
    --------------------
    rpm libffmpeg0 -q
    --------------------

    If you don't get this:

    Code:
    --------------------
    rpm libffmpeg0 -q
    libffmpeg0-0.4.9.16240svn-20081219.pm.2021

    --------------------

    It means you 're missing libffmpeg it's in the repos.
    1. Go to Yast> Software Management
    2.In search type libffmpeg
    3.Look for it in the right pane
    4.check it for install click Accept
    If all goes well you'll be able to play DVDs.
    One more thing get it from the Packman repos, not the VLC version.Check
    on it before you do the above.
    To do that:
    1.Yast> Software Repositories
    2.Disable the VideoLan repos & make sure the Packman repo is enabled
    3.click Ok

    I like lizards and penguins that's why I use Opensuse. If it had been an
    insect and a bug I'd have no interest here.

    The problem is likely with your version of xine, The version of libxine
    that is included with the distribution is not a fully functional version
    (for legal reasons). The problem is probably not with Kaffeine.

    You can replace the libxine that is included with the distro, with a
    fully functional version. You would also need to have libdvdnav and
    libdvdcss installed to play commercial DVDs.

    Another option worth mentioning, you could try VLC media player from
    videolan.org. It is a complete media player that will play just about
    anything, including DVDs. In fact, it has been able to play every type
    of media file that I have been able to find so far
