I’m was having a hard time when i first upgraded from 7.10 to Hardy. First problem: the Kaffeine refuses to play DVDs. Yes, I have already install the entire Medibuntu repository, the newest version of libdvdcss to play encrypted dvds, and the message from kaffeine is always the same:
This DVD Video is encrypted. To be able to watch it you will need to install libdvdcss by running from a console: sudo /usr/share/doc/kaffeine/install-css.sh. In some countries it is illegal to install the decryption software without permission from the video copyright holder.
Yes, I ran this “/usr/share/doc/kaffeine/install-css.sh” from root console, everything apparently OK. But kaffeine again repeated this dreadful message. I don’t know what to do.
Another thing: the Amarok simply does not play audio cds, and does not give any explanation, contrary to Kaffeine. It simply says it couldn’t read the cd.
As i was Explaining in my previous post that a Clean install is always wise than an upgrade,same holds her too
In the Kaffeine menu go to Settings -> xine Engine Parameters -> media and
set dvd.device to /dev/dvd1 instead of /dev/dvd.Donno the reason but the dvd device in /dev is called dvd1 now in ubuntu 8.04.After that I could play the dvds…
The same trick applies for amarok too..Change the settings in the following way:
dev/cdrom —-> dev/cdrom1.
