    I installed mplayer 1.pre1 as teh old .9X are no longer available.  gmencoder works for files,  whats with the dvd?  mplayer makes a key fine and plays the dvd's

      I believe this is an issue with the version checking done by acidrip to retain support for the 0.9 branch. i think it's
      probably time to drop that support anyway, and only use the new format
