Newbie needs help changing Internal player to MPlayer, VLC, and Xine
Internal player is giving me grief. I want to try switching to an external player, but have not had any success. VLC works fine when launched from the desktop, but not from within Myth frontend. In the settings, I have replaced "Internal" with things like, "vlc dvd:/dev/dvd", "mplayer dvd:/dev/dvd", etc. I can get the disc drive spinning, but nothing on screen. I know I need to use commands like, "-fs" (full screen) or "-vo" (video overlay), but whenever I do, my system freezes. Am I missing something because I'm watching on a TV through video out? If someone could please tell me EXACTLY what I need to type in for MPlayer, VLC and Xine to work, it would really save Christmas.
