Hi,

I haven't tried playing any movie DVD's since I've installed Pardus back in September, so I don't know if this is a bug with the latest multimedia package from test repo.

When I install a disk, Dragon Player will play sound, and I can see the time countdown progressing as the disk plays, but there is no picture.  When I try to start Gnome Media Player, the secondary window crashes.  Smplayer and Mplayer do nothing  at all. 

When I start dragon player from terminal, I get this error output while disk is in:
Code:

I've tried switching  backend from xine to gstreamer and get same problem.  The only thing I have found doing a search is that this is caused when one has 3D effects enabled, but I don't.  I think this is an upstream bug, something  not to do with Pardus but with KDE or Phonon.  Anyway, I thought I'd post this here. I tried it in Fedora 11 using KDE 4.3.3 as well and same problem.

Sorry, I'm laughing, Andy.  You're having problems with the other thing mentioned that I am not, and I'm having problems with this, that you are not.  So is life!  Grin

As I don't have a movie DVD, I can't test this. Angry

Ouch!  I can only suggest posting your car and washing machine problems in the Pub section - who knows, maybe someone has a suggestion.  I hope you can get them repaired without much trouble.  My walk behind lawnmower recently broke, and I had no idea what was wrong with it, but that it  made a "clunk clunk" sound at the end of pulling out the starter cord.  Husband looked it over and has narrowed it down to a thrown rod.  Not a quick fix for sure. 

On topic, I just installed Kaffeine (it wasn't installed by default) and same thing as with Dragon Player.  It will play the audio, but there is no video showing.  I tried another movie disk, too.

Car and washing machine both fixed- at huge expense.  Now we just need your DVD playing sorted!

Good to hear it, Andy. 

Thanks for suggestion, atolboo.  I tried it, but it didn't help.  I also did today's updates, which included coreutils, but didn't fix it.  I read about, and kept seeing things referred to as opengl, which in my case, would be mesa, as you know me, I do not use proprietary drivers for my  nVidia card.   What I did was revert the three packages : libdrm, mesa, xorg-video-nouveau to their default packages that I got from here:
http://packages.pardus.org.tr/pardus-2009/

This also gets rid of the messy boot up graphics I get that I referred to in my other bug report.

I found a movie DVD.  Grin
After switching back to nouveau.
Sysinfo reports: 2.1 Mesa 7.8.1-rc1
(and I am missing some of the nice visual features of KDE 4.3.4)
And I have no problem playing the movie DVD in  Dragon Player!!!! Cool
And this is with "pisi info libdrm mesa xorg-video-nouveau" :
Quote

Thanks for testing it out, atolboo! 

To make sure, last night I did more updates, the latest kernel ending in .34, and updated libdrm, nouveau, and mesa, and same thing occurred.  I also tested by switching from "use the default driver for the detected card", to "nouveau" under Display settings/configuration, rebooted, got the messy boot up graphics still, and also players would not show video, only sound.  I also read that this problem can be caused by PowerDevil, so I unticked "Let PowerDevil manage screen power saving" and changed CPU and System to "performance" under Power Management, but that didn't help.  I have a desktop, not a laptop and I always get confused by power management settings as they seem more directed to laptop users.   Maybe I can tweak some more here to see if it does anything.  But, that would only be a fix, as I can permanently solve it by reverting back to the default video installation packages.

Again, thanks for testing this.  Maybe it has more to do with my particular card, and/or my motherboard.
