VLC won't play DVDs

I'm using haiku-pre-alpha-hrev30012-vm under Virtual Box in Ubuntu. I mount the DVD and open VLC 0.8.6c then click on Media>> Open Disc and nothing happens, VLC won't start playing. I already tried with an original DVD (CSS protected) and a back up DVD (unprotected) without any luck.

That's because UDF is not yet in the image. Ticket #1856 keeps track of that.

I am not sure that that's the case. Pretty much all the DVDs should also have ISO9660 support for backwards compatibility. I also remember that I mounted DVDs in Haiku and could look at the files.

Indeed. I am not even sure VLC needs the disk to be mounted at all.

Replying to axeld:

It doesn't, for DVD it uses the raw device directly. Is it possible we're either missing or not correctly implementing an ioctl that vlc needs? strace should be able to confirm/refute that one pretty easily at least.

VLC 0.8.6c works in Zeta so it's probably a problem with Haiku. How would a DVD made playable with our MediaPlayer, a media-addon?

Is it still reproducible?

Tested on hrev52003: VLC 0.8.6i & VLC 2.2.8 no longer available and currently non-functional on Haiku. I can mount/read the a movie DVD properly and see the files on a movie DVD. Can use Mplayer.

Can close ticket as VLC not supported at this time.
