I just tested Acidrip. It used lsdvd for dvd information extraction. It 
shows the audio track mplayer can't play is indeed 24 bit 48 kHz:

  Audio: 1, Language: en - English, Format: lpcm , Frequency: 48000, 
Quantization: 24bit, Channels: 2, AP: 0, Content: Undefined

So, why is mplayer, xine and vlc wrong, and lsdvd right?

I fear the day when people call their pets names like "RISCie".
