Playing DVDs correctly
Hello, I'm trying out PCBSD 7.1 for 3 hours...
1. As you might know you need libdvdcss to enjoy encrypted DVDs.
# pkg_add -r libdvdcss
2. The multimedia players "look" for that in /usr/lib, but in fact it's installed to /usr/local/lib, so I did:
# cp /usr/local/lib/libdvdcss* /usr/lib
3. I found that atapi dma was ticked in system settings -> kernel but obviously it's *not* enabled because dvd movies are not running properly. What I did:
a. unticked the atapi dma -> okay
b. rebooted the system
c. re-ticked the atapi dma again, rebooted the system again.
The system didn't reboot properly at the first time but rebooted again. However, after being back to kde I could watch DVDs. And there is a nice side effect: the rather jerky mouse (ps/2) is running much better now.
