Return of the 'Old-style-DVD-support', with dynamic loading (using libdl) so
no more conflict with libdvdread: you can compile in both of libdvdread and
libcss support! You can even select libcss.so to load from command line or
configuration file, with '-csslib /usr/local/lib/libcss.so' or something
similar. Default for this option is /usr/local/lib/libcss.so. Note: libcss
version (ver>0.1) with newer API is not supported in this version! This is
the first version so stay tuned :)
There were some tasks where libcss (aka old-style-dvd-support) would have
been useful. The problem was conflicting libdvdread and libcss, so only
one of them could be compiled into mplayer.
Now, with dynamic loading, it's possible to use both of them in a single
binary of mplayer if both of them were compiled to have.
I've checked several times if I break something, I hope it will not. However
it's quite possible that libcss support is not perfect at the moment so please
treat it as a development feature of MPlayer. This note includes the fact as
well that it will only work with libcss-0.1.
Please send feedback if something is wrong, and send me Cola if I break something.
