i am having a problem with xine, i am not able to play dvds. whenever
i type xine window comes up and vanishes even when there is a dvd
inside the dvd rom/cd writer. i did the following thing: red hat linux
Step by step guide to run xine
1.You need to download the xine engine (libxine). Get the libxine rpm
which more closely matches yourCPU:
libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.i586.rpm for Pentium/Pentium MMX
libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.i686.rpm for Pentium II/III/IV
libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.k6.rpm for AMD K6
libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.k7.rpm for AMD Athlon/Duron
If you don't know your CPU just get the i586 package.
xine-ui-(version)-xxxxxx.i586.rpm for any CPU.
3.Install the packages (you need to be root):
# rpm -U libxine1* xine-ui*
4.If you want full DVD support download and install libdvdcss:
By default, xine expects to find your DVD-ROM at /dev/dvd.
Creating a symbolic link to your device is recommended (for example,
/dev/hdc or /dev/scd0). The command below should work for most users:
# ln -s /dev/cdrom /dev/dvd
Make sure the DMA is enabled for your DVD-ROM, otherwise playback
will be 'jumpy'.
# hdparm -d1 /dev/cdrom
5. If you want full Windows Media Video and Quicktime support
download and install:
If you want full Real Media support download and install:
RealPlayer9-126.96.36.199-4.i386.rpm newest version
(alternative rpm for fedora core:
RealPlayer8-188.8.131.522-5.i386.rpm older version (if you have
problems instaling RealPlayer9)
obs: Depending on your distro, you might need
/usr/sbin/update-alternatives or libXm.so.2
Type 'xine' at your console window and enjoy...
