Component: - GeneralApplications/MediaPlayer
Owner: changed from nobody to stippi

Note that if the DVD in question is copy protected, that won't work, as MediaPlayer doesn't in any way try to brute force CSS at this point (unlike, e.g. vlc).

Using hrev47966 gcc2hybrid I get the same "general system error" (for vob files bigger than a few kiB), however, after closing that message window, MediaPlayer is started but can't play the file. It seems that vobs are recognized as media files in a way even if file info still shows "generic file" for them.

Have here a DVD from Computer Bild and using hrev47851. See Screenshot DVD2.jpeg. Selecting marked VOB-File and Mediaplayer starts to play file. Did also a copy to NTFS-Volume without protection. VOB-File don't be identified. See Screenshot DVD1.jpeg.

hrev50818 x86_gcc2 MediaPlayer is now able to recognize the .VOB files and starts to play them before crashing. Debug report attached.

After copying the .VOB file to my hard drive, I was able to successfully play the file from the terminal. See Play_VOB.png (attached)

Tested playback of VOB files from VIDEO_TS folder on DVD. Haiku has no problem recognizing and playing such files on current build hrev51307.

That's one more step towards DVD playback. Next is handling of DVD menus and the CSS encryption where needed (but I can give some un-encrypted DVDs to people who want to work on menus).

I still see this bug in hrev53121 x86_64. I dragged a DVD icon on the desktop onto MediaPlayer, it did not work but I saved an error report. Should this bug be re opened or I report a new bug before attaching the report?

Please open a new ticket.

Replying to diver:

Please open a new ticket.

I retested again with another DVD that also had vob files and it played alright. The DVD that did not play had been jammed in another device so may have been damaged though hard to tell by looking. So probably no need for me to report another bug.

comment:12 by diver, 6 months ago

MediaPlayer should be able to show an error instead if crashing, so please file a new ticket and attach debug report there.
