Playing newer DVDs

Postby vinoman on Sun Nov 11, 2007 9:31 am

Yesterday I bought a copy of the new Disney movie Ratatouille. I put it in my other PC which is running Ubuntu 7.10 and it said it did not have plugins, but didn't say which ones. I have libdvdcss2 and w32codecs installed on Ubuntu and other DVDs work fine. So I tried the DVD out in my other PC running Mint 3.1 and it played just fine :)

I eventually was able to play that DVD in Ubuntu using VLC and playing with the settings.

What plugins does Mint have that Ubuntu does not?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

A lot :lol:
We have a lot of codecs by default, but I can't tell you which one was used here (without a bit of work)
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I used to have similar doubts...I just dont bother anymore!! :wink:

For example, I could never get Ubuntu to play rmvb. But, Mint just does it!!
