View Full Version : [ubuntu] help with Gmplayer

August 3rd, 2009, 03:51 PM
I do gmplayer /dev/dvd1 (this commands works) and it bring up my my dvd I have in the dvd drive. But the remote control panel is bugged, if I hit stop it goes all the way back to a chapter, if I hit a few other guys they get bugged as well,

now I have this installed on a live CD that I customized could this be the reason gmplayer control panel is so bugged?

It might just be gmplayer having some problems with that dvd (or problems in general) I'd doubt it has to do with the dvd.

You may want to try a different player (or maybe just mplayer from the command line with keyboard shortcuts, that's what I like). vlc, totem, dragon player, should all play your dvd just fine.

totem freezes everytime I tell it to player a dvd, so totem is out, could not get VLC to play my DVD's, dragon player ill trying.

seems that dragon player does not even have a fastforward/reewind or skip chapter.

You can try gxine too.

gxine is not bad, but I wish I could get gmplayer control panel to work right.
