    VLC keeps crashing on me, SMplayer skips through the movie... Ubuntu 13.04

    I tried watching The Avengers on DVD today. VLC does not work at all and SMplayer skips from scene to scene without finishing one... It is very annoying,...

    When I try running VLC from terminal this is what I get...

    I ran synaptic, no packages were broken and it updated a few. The problem still persists.

    Code:
    jason@jason-b628:~$ vlc

    Maybe it has some structure protection that is messing up dvd navigation.

    You could try these with vlc, I'll assume for the moment dvd drive is /dev/sr0

    To try without menus - (can also be done from vlc's disc menu but cli may be useful

    Code:
    vlc dvdsimple:///dev/sr0
    Or try to find the real title number for the movie, some structure protections use bogus title #'s. If you have a standalone dvd player (tv) then should be simple or I've read it may be title 35 or 28 for region 1, so
    Code:
    vlc dvdsimple:///dev/sr0#35
    or
    Code:
    vlc dvdsimple:///dev/sr0#28
    or
    Code:
    vlc dvd:///dev/sr0#35
    ect.

    I tried your first command, and it is playing right now.

    this is what Terminal says...

    Code:

    (don't quite get post 3 ) but if vlc seems to be playing the movie correctly using dvdsimple then would be interesting -

    While movie is playing, in vlc's menu > Playback > Title & see which title number is playing (& how many titles are listed

    Hmmm, I tried another DVD and it worked just fine... It must be the Avengers DVD... Is there a way I can work around this problem in the future? It seems to be skipping to the next scene without finishing the current one as well.

    Titles listed are 1-99, title 3 is playing.

    It's quite possible you're playing the wrong title, many of those 99 are bogus & or have improper nav or other such nonsense.

    Try to find the actual main movie title & specify that title # to vlc.
    Did you try 35 & or 28?

    I have been having the same trouble with Avengers, and as it turns out, always at the same time in the movie. Then it occurred to me, this is graphic content filtering. Always removing the sequences that contain violence. So the question now is, why the graphic filter/parental control, and how to turn it on or off?

    Maybe ripping the DVD with something like Handbrake would remove the controls?
