Hi!

I have the problem that I can't playback DVDs on my system. When I try to do that, I get


Aug 1 19:44:26 AQUARIUS kernel: [ 3578.566964] end_request: I/O error, dev sr1, sector 607584
Aug 1 19:44:26 AQUARIUS kernel: [ 3578.709728] end_request: I/O error, dev sr1, sector 607584

Aug 1 19:44:27 AQUARIUS kernel: [ 3579.280728] end_request: I/O error, dev sr1, sector 607584


Looks like faulty hardware, but the DVD is in perfect condition and can be normally played with other hardware. And the drive in my PC can also normally read DATA-DVDs. DATA-DVDs are no problem, but with Movie-DVDs I have always this problem - with every Movie-DVD I have tried so far!?

Anybody can give a hint what the problem could be?

Thanks,
airflow

I'd like to add that I just tried to playback the same DVD on the same computer with Windows XP (dual boot)! :( There must be something wrong with my ubuntu-configuration...

greez,

Have you already installed the extra gstreamer packages? Applications -> Add/Remove, search all apps for gstreamer. Install "gstreamer ffmpeg..." and "gstreamer extra plugins".

Or actually install the restricted formats stuff: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/RestrictedFormats. My bad.

sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2


If its not there may I introduce you to medibuntu and the world of restricted packages.

First you must enable the Medibuntu repository...


sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list

wget -q http://packages.medibuntu.org/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update

Then install the following in order to play DVDs...


sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2

There are many other codecs you can also install, but perhaps you already have. Ask if you need some help!

Thanks for your input, this helped.
