libdvdcss 1.2.2 is very old, try 1.2.5 or libmpdvdkit2

> Hi,
> I'm sending this e-mail to both Ogle und Mplayer mailing list since it
> concerns both.
> A friend of mine is using libdvdread 0.9.3, libcss 1.2.2, Mplayer0.90rc4
> and Ogle-0.8.5 .
> When trying to play a DVD with mplayer or ogle he gets the following error:
> libdvdread: Can't seek to block 256
> libdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO.
> Can't open VMG info!
> I have read a thread on both groups where this behaviour was reported
> before, but there was no solution :-(.

> We set up everything like this:
> chmod 666 /dev/hdc
> ln -s /dev/hdc/ /dev/dvd
> We did not tweak anything with hdparm.
> We then compiled both libdvdread and libdvdcss and did a "make install"
> The drive is a Matshita SR-8587.
> We even looked for another firmware for the Matshita and installed an
> RPC-1  from http://forum.rpc1.org/dl_firmware.php?category=1&manufactor=18
> That also did not make the problem go away.
> I can mount the DVD-ROM with UDF and ISO9660 and can always see whats on
> there but mplayer and ogle cannot play it.
> btw: When we use a Lite-On LTD 165-H instead, everything works just fine.
