    "DVD-A" playback

    Hey all, does anyone know how to play DVD-Audio disks in linux?

    Just to make sure we're all on the same page as to what DVD-A is... it's a DVD disk with files in the audio_ts folder. Please don't give answers for how to play a DVD video.

    Ok. So I can play DVD-A disks in Windows with powerdvd just fine. Does anyone know how to do this in Ubuntu?

    Initial attempts with mplayer fail with things like...

    Code:
    $ mplayer ats_01_1.aob

    Maybe you are playing a non-interleaved stream/file or the codec failed?
    For AVI files, try to force non-interleaved mode with the -ni option.

    If it's any consolation this particular disk is a 4.0 channel 24-bit/96kHz recording. (Possibly 24-bit/192kHz)

    Any help would be sweet, as 4 hours of Googling has gotten me nowhere.

    Thanks.

    Re: "DVD-A" playback

    I know that I'm extremely late, sorry.

    But if you were like me and googling for something to do this on Linux and couldn't find it, VLC now plays DVD-A's if you insert a disc and manually go to Media -> Play Disc -> select DVD.
    For some reason, Ubuntu doesn't play right with them and balks when you insert a DVD-A.
