not able to play vcd using mplayer from cdwriter
« on: April 17, 2006, 06:31:17 AM »
Hi,

I am not able to play cd from my writer using mplayer, i followed the tip given by you, but i am getting this error:

[root@localhost root]# mplayer vcd://1 /dev/scd0
MPlayer 1.0pre7try2-3.2.2 (C) 2000-2005 MPlayer Team
CPU: Intel Pentium 4/Xeon Willamette (Family: 8, Stepping: 2)

CPUflags: MMX: 1 MMX2: 1 3DNow: 0 3DNow2: 0 SSE: 1 SSE2: 1

Playing vcd://1.
CD-ROM Device '/dev/cdrom' not found.
Failed to open vcd://1

Playing /dev/scd0.

I am able to play the same cd from my cdrom without any problems. When i give ls -l /dev/cdrom* i get the following output.

[root@localhost root]# ls -l /dev/cdrom*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Apr 10 00:48 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Apr 10 00:48 /dev/cdrom1 -> /dev/scd0


Thanks,
Christopher.

Its somehow not following the guidelines given to it after track location.

Ie.
mplayer vcd://1 /dev/scd0 !

well.. then try
mplayer /dev/scd0 vcd://1

also see
man mplayer

for more help, though I have played cds using above command.

Hmm. try mplayer graphical interface, there you have option to specify device manualy. See if that works.
mplayer GUI = gmplayer.

I tried using gmplayer, where is the option to specify device manually?

I tried the play VCD option but got a similar error. I also tried using xine but i could not succeed playing from cd writer. When i put the cd in the cdrom it plays fine using xine.

This is getting complicated. I think we are missing something really small. Well there is option in GUI to set which device to be used as default. Just explore a bit more.
