Re: Playing Cinema DVDs problem

Thanks to your instructions, I could watch the movie, starting it from the
command line. What I don't understand is why it works from the command
line and not from the interface. After all, all the interface does is send
commands to mplayer:

/usr/bin/mplayer -noquiet -nofs -nomouseinput -sub-fuzziness 1 -identify
-slave -vo xv -ao pulse -nokeepaspect -framedrop -nodr -double -input
conf=/usr/share/smplayer/input.conf -stop-xscreensaver -wid 29360143
-monitorpixelaspect 1 -noass -subfont-autoscale 1 -subfont-text-scale 5
-subcp enca:fr:ISO-8859-1 -subpos 100 -contrast -8 -brightness 5
-saturation 40 -dvd-device /dev/dvd -dvdangle 1 -cache 2000 -osdlevel 0
-vf-add screenshot -slices -channels 2 -af
volnorm=2,equalizer=0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0 -softvol -softvol-max 120 -sb
2500000 dvd://1

If I compare with The Thomas Crown Affair command to Mplayer, all that I
had more is:

-vid 0 -aid 130

-vid <ID>
  Select  video  channel  (MPG: 0-15, ASF: 0-255, MPEG-TS: 17-8190).  When
playing an MPEG-TS stream,
  MPlayer/MEncoder will use the first program (if present) with the chosen
video stream.

It seems the video mode is not selected by smplayer for Batman (Double
layer instead of single layer), whereas mplayer does it.

If I get this right, it might be a bug... which I might report, since I
use SMPlayer.

It's not that starting the video from the command line is so obtrusive --
it could even be done with a shell script -- but I would luv to show a
Maccie friend of mine how well Linux works and I just can't imagine myself
starting a video from the command line :)
