I'll really like to be able to see DVD film with mplays on my box, but so hasn't yet been a success for me. my last attempt however have given me some hope of a solution. Mplayer were in a position to tell me all sorts of information
about the medium but not display it.
This mplayer that I am talking about I copied from an older laptop where I compiled it some time a go.
My original intention was to compile mplayer for my new box but the
compilation failed much to my surprise since it compiled so fine on the same gnu/Linux system (vector Linux 4) on an other box earlier. I think it must be the hardware that gives the compilation problems. I can maybe explain the compilation problems in a later post if that is needed.
Ok I than copied the binary mplayer from my laptop to the new box and it worked right away playing my mpeg and flv files. So I wanted to try playing DVD I tried different commands that I looked up with google an the one that seems to work the best was when I first mounted the DVD drive (when I play CD with xmms I should not mount the CD drive first) and than execute the following command:

mplayer dvd://1-17 -dvd-device /mnt/dvd

I maneged to log the output from mplayer and that follows here. Maybe some of you are able to analyse this and give me some advise what to do. What ever it is compile a new mplayer or it can be done with some config etc. with this functioning mplayer.
