    VLC fails to play DVD across network (NFS)

    Chaps,

    I'm struggling with this one. And I think I'm going a little mad(!)

    I have a desktop computer with a DVD drive in it.

    I have two laptops, neither of which have a DVD drive, but all of them are on a wireless network at home.

    I have the DVD drive shared across the laptops using NFS. (I can post the etc/exports and the fstab files if need be, but I don't think they are the problem).

    Two days ago, I put a DVD in the desktop machine, fired up the first laptop (x61s), opened VLC on the laptop and watched the DVD fine across the network. Very good it all was too.

    Yesterday, I tried exactly the same, and it failed. The DVD fails to open on VLC. It doesn't buffer, it doesn't show the length of the disk, it just goes back to the 'no media loaded' state.

    It's doing the same now. If I run VLC from the command line, it gives the following:

    Code:
    ogp@ogp-x61s:~$ vlc

    The same thing happens from the other laptop (X31), and when I do the same I get this set of messages in the terminal:

    Code:
     
    ogp@x31:~$ vlc
    VLC media player 1.0.2 Goldeneye

    This doesn't mean a lot to me, but it looks like there is some problem accessing the disk in the desktop machine. BUT it plays fine if I open VLC on the desktop machine, so it works that far.

    The funny thing is that it worked across the network fine on the first laptop (x61s) a couple of days ago, and I don't think I have changed anything on either machine since then. (I suspect it worked fine on the second laptop - X31 - but don't recall trying it.)

    What's wrong, and what can I do to fix it?

    All help welcomed, thanks. (Do ask if you need more details - I'll try and post them)

    I'm not sure it's network related. I am getting an identical error log when trying to play a DVD on a single desktop.
