    How to play a VCD on ubuntu 10.10 maverick meerkat

    Ok
    to play a vcd open up a terminal and enter:

    apt-get install smplayer

    now open up smplayer in aplications> sound&video > SMPlayer
    next go to open> VCD
    it may ask you to set a drive. set a drive and do open> VCD again
    if the drive you chose does not work go to options> preferences> drives and try out each drive one by one. One of them should be the correct one.
    Tada! VCD playing

    Some of the latest dvds and vcds I could only play with SMplayer you suggested. Totem (default ubuntu media player) or VLC could not play them.

    Thanks sudsiv!
    Cheers,
    Ananth.

    I followed your advise but I got the following answer.
    E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?

    Awaiting to hear from you soon.
