One DVD just won't play

Postby Luno on Mon Jul 09, 2012 5:49 pm

Hi,

I'm having a very strange problem: If I try to play one particular (retail-) DVD on my desktop PC (Maya Cinnamon x64), my DVD Player (vlc) just puts out a green screen and chopped audio. Tested other players, none produced watchable output. All other DVDs are behaving normally.

- First Guess: DVD or DVD drive broken. Booted up Win7 to verify - DVD plays smoothly without any problems.
- Second Guess: Funny copy protection or other Linux incompatibility - DVD plays smoothly without any problems on my Laptop (Maya MATE x86)
- Third Guess: Codecs messed up. Compared installed codecs on laptop and desktop - they're identical (as far as I can tell).

vlc output during not-really-plaback:

Code: Select all
