can't play video files from DVD...
#16
With regards to the previous post about 'XBMC freeze', that problem seems to be unrelated: with this particular DVD even unpatched XBMC system locks up.... So, so far the patch holds Smile.

Hi, I'm using ubuntu hardy and xbmc

Quote:I've installed all possible proprietary codecs long time ago. Also, the same files play fine from hard drive. Just to point out, I do not have problem playing DVDs (ie, VS_VIDEO movies), but do have problem playing AVI files from DVD media. Once they are copied to HD, everything works

I have the same problem....and I would like resolve it.....but I don't understood how to apply the patchConfused

You can apply the patch this way:
cd /path/to/your/xbmc/source
patch -p0 < /path/to/the/patch

Then you probably didn't compile your own version of XBMC yet. Applying the patch requires recompiling XBMC from source - so make yourself familiar with that first. For beginners it isn't easy and if you are a total beginner you should probably wait until the bug is fixed in XBMC.

There is a workaround for this bug, too which does not require XBMC recompilation. You can create a symbolic link to your CD-Rom drive within your Movie Folder. Let's say "/path/to/my/movies" is the path you store all your Movies in and "/media/cdrom" is your cdrom drive. Just open a console and type:

ln -s /media/cdrom /path/to/my/movies/CD-Rom

To watch a movie from DVD you do no longer watch it from CD directly, but change to your Movie-Library and select the folder "CD-Rom".
