Running Xfce on Fedora 20. All works fine but this.
I tried to play a commercial DVD. For this, I had installed livedvdcss, but Parole continues to complain it can't play it because it does not find his stuff.
What could I have done wrong ?
My buddy couldn't figure out how to play them on his laptop a few weeks ago. He was in a big hurry to get back to work (works out of town), so instead of trying to figure out what he was using and why it wasn't working, I just installed VLC, told him to run it and to press CTRL-d (IIRC). He later told me it worked great.
Not a direct solution - but it should allow you to watch your DVDs while you're searching for one. I don't think VLC depends on any codecs (but I might be mistaken).
If you run parole from a terminal window, do any error messages show up when you try to play one?
Good idea thanks. I'll try asap.
It does not display anything . And if I click on "open" I see the DVD with the title in Thunar. And from Thunar if I click on read"The Disk", it displays "gestreamer engine error".
Or course yes
here what I have
rpm -qa | grep gstreamer
rpm -qa | grep libdvdcss
But I guess Parole is searching his things at a wrong place ?
Here is what I have installed, as you can see there are quite a few you don't have.

Do you really belive that I need something more to play a DVD ?
The arch is unimportant but I note you are missing the bad-free-extras, nonfree and freeworld. Without a detailed list of what each one contains it is difficult to say if they will fix your issue.
