I have just installed OSMC on a new pi2. My intention was to set up an easy to use home media setup for a luddite relative.
I have license keys for Mpeg-2 content.
I have attached an external usb dvd drive to the pi and attempted to play a dvd.
This does not work. I can browse the dvd files, but whenever I attempt to access one of the IFO or VOB files nothing happens at all.
I am also completely unable to access any dvd menus.
I have absolutely no clue how to install libdvdcss.
I’ve looked at:
But I am a complete linux noob, and don’t understand what these threads are saying at all. What does it mean to compile a build with libdvdcss???
I don’t think a pi and OSMC were the correct choice for what I want to do here( media center that can also play dvd’s).
This might be the same problem as in this OSMC forum topic. If some DVD’s play fine and others don’t then it’s probably not a CSS (= content scrambling system, a copy protection system) problem. I’ll bump that topic again.
Summary of other topic at the time of writing: there seems to be a problem w/ video acceleration. If you disable MMAL and OMX acceleration in “System > Video > Acceleration” in Kodi and the DVd does pay, then you definitely have said problem.
Yes i do have the mpeg2 codec installed. I realise that maybe the DVD player is not as good as i though. With those new settings i had another DVD failling. After cleaning the surface of the DVD with a cloth the dvd can run now successfully.
