[SOLVED] libdvdcss2 can't read my dvd's (anymore)

Postby DC80 on Thu Nov 22, 2012 6:50 pm

Hi all,

I have an rather strange problem. This is the case at hand, I'm trying to rip my (original) dvd's to mp3, so that when it is time for bed i can listen to the episodes of the serie i have. I do this to relax and most of the time fall a sleep. Yesterday, I installed Mint 14 and it works great! Except for the dvd ripping part.

On Mint 13 I use, after a lot of research, Mplayer to rip the dvd to .wav format. After that I use lame to convert to mp3. The commands I use are these:

To rip:
Code: Select all
mplayer dvd://3 -aid 129 -vo null -ao pcm:file='dvd_audio.wav'


To convert:
Code: Select all
lame -h dvd_audio.wav dvd_audio.mp3


This worked well untill now. When executed I see a lot of info which includes the libdvdcss2 info. Now I only see this:

Code: Select all
user@userdesktop ~ $ mplayer dvd://3 -aid 129 -vo null -ao pcm:file='dvd_audio.wav'
MPlayer svn r34540 (Ubuntu), built with gcc-4.7 (C) 2000-2012 MPlayer Team
mplayer: could not connect to socket
mplayer: No such file or directory
Failed to open LIRC support. You will not be able to use your remote control.

Playing dvd://3.
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
libdvdread: Could not open /dev/dvd with libdvdcss.
libdvdread: Can't open /dev/dvd for reading
Couldn't open DVD device: /dev/dvd (No medium found)
No stream found to handle url dvd://3


Exiting... (End of file)
user@userdesktop ~ $


The part where it says "No medium found" is the strange part because the dvd mounts as normal, i even can play it with VLC media player. So why is libdvdcss unable to "see" the dvd?

I have searched google and reinstall some of the packages but with no luck. So all is working well except for the ripping part. Can someone help me with this problem?

Kind regards,

DC80

Hi all,

Kinda solved it. I run VMware and installed Mint 13. It is still working in there. So using the VM with Mint 13 will solve it for now. If anyone have some more info on this problem then I'm glad to hear it. I will set this topic to sovled.

Kind regards,
