DVD no playback - Pep 6 on a HP DV1000 (solved)
« on: May 06, 2016, 10:28:10 am »
I used the update manager and am now fully updated.  Not too concerned about the eject button, but can not play DVD, only audio cds. Could you folks help me troubleshoot that issue?  I looked at one of the logs from SM player and saw error messages like "could not connect to socket" etc.
Player will display movie title and list chapter files,  no video or sound however.  What to check first?

sudo apt-get install libdvdread4then
Code: [Select]
sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.shdid that make any difference ?

Glad it is fixed.    Now please go back to the very first entry and modify it and mark the topic [Solved]

also do the same for your power button post as well.

Thanks
