    Can't get DVDs to play within RR

    I can play DVDs with Mplayerc.exe or VLC when launching outside of RR. But if I try to launch a DVD from within RR it does not even get my DVD drive to trigger.

    I have tried setting up RRConfig to use built in VLC option and have also tried with the MPC option.

    I have tried with CArwings skin and Elite Lite skin.

    Can any of you folks help me figure what i am doing wrong?

    VLC : 1.0.1 Goldeneye
    MPC: 6.4.9.0 (supplied by RR)
    OS: WXP
    PC: Dell Insprion E1505

    Excerpts from RR.ini file:

    [Video Player Setup]
    videoplayer=VLCVidRR
    mpcpath=C:\Program Files\Road Runner\mplayerc.exe

    [Video]
    videopath=D:\VIDEO_TS\
    videoautohide=true
    videohidetime=4
    videofiles=.asf,.avi,.m2v,.mpeg,.mpg,.nsv,.vob,.wm v
    videoshuffle=false

    [DVD Player Setup]
    dvdplayer=MPCVidRR

    [Extra's]

    hddebug=false
    hibernatereload=true
    builtinvideo=true

    Thanks,
    randy

    What skin are you using ?
    Did you try another skin ?
    Can you make a debug log ?
    From your INI settings, seems like you are trying (or tried) to play DVDs from the VIDEO player -- which is NOT possible. DVD playback has to be done using the DVD command.

    Hi Guino, thanks for the response.

    I tried the following skins with same results: Carwings, Elite Lite, and DigitalFX. I just downloaded those last two within past week so I figure they are current.

    Yes I did try playing DVD via Video at one time, but realized my error after reading through the forum.

    I will try and create a debug log later today. I guess I can make that happen by editing RR.ini under
    [Extra's]
    hddebug=false (change this to True?)

    thanks

    Is there any other information that I can provide to help figure out what might be happening here?

    thanks,

    Wasn't RR changed to have a dedicated dvd_player.skin for DVDs?

    I am trying to launch from within the the DigitalFX 4.0 skin with menu item labeled "DVD". It opens a screen that looks like its dedicated to DVDs. Maybe I am misunderstanding how things are supposed to work, admittedly, I am a total nube.

    Based off the debug, RR doesn't looke like it's loading dvd_player.skin. The skin might not have been updated to accomodate it.
