Description Sebastian Krueger 2008-02-03 04:15:56 UTC
There are some DVDs which can not be played by a DVD player using libdvdread, like e.g. VLC. This is due to the defective UDF file system produced by the copy protection DVD-Movie-Protect.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.start xine
2. try to play a DVD-Movie-Protect'ed move
3. xine will crash

As this is german-based copy protection, this will only apply to very few dvds, but never the less, should be fixed.

Have you submitted those patches upstream?
Comment 4 Sebastian Krueger 2008-02-03 11:29:01 UTC
no, I only attached them to this bug report.
Comment 5 Lars Wendler (Polynomial-C) gentoo-dev 2008-03-19 15:05:34 UTC
Finally! I've waited for such patches for quite a while now.
Applied both patches to latest ~x86 packages in portage and they seem to work. I was able to watch Disney's "Ratatouille" (german version) and "7 Zwerge - der Wald ist nicht genug" with these patches in VLC and kaffeine (xine-lib).
Sebastian, IIRC Gentoo policy says to send such patches to the corresponding upstream maintainers and wait for their approval before they get included into portage. Could you try to do that? Maybe it's not even necessary regarding the patch from debian.

fixes libdvdnav

the attachted patch fixes the libdvdread included in libdvdnav used by players like VLC

Unfortunately, libdvd{nav,read}-4.1.3 still suffer from the same problem and judging from a quick try, the patches submitted here don't apply anymore. Has someone worked on updated patches?
Comment 8 Daniel Pinto dos Santos 2009-05-04 22:18:16 UTC
Just found this bug-report, as I'm having the same problems, I think.
Could someone just describe how to easily apply the patches to the sources?
Couldn't someone write an ebuild, that users could at least download from here?

Comment 9 Samuli Suominen gentoo-dev 2012-01-28 04:49:52 UTC
Try libdvdread-4.2.0, libdvdnav-4.2.0, xine-lib-1.2.0. Reopen if this is still a issue.
