Yep, and the issues have been reported but were obviously,silently ignored.
I suspect overlooked or forgotten rather than ignored.

....and then we got MPV...which is not userfriendly by any means.
1) There is no UI to make/change settings - I would not expect a user
to search for and learn the syntax of how changes can be made to MPV
and to tinker with *.conf files. That's not what I would call "userfriendly"
But that's how some users learn and they feel proud when they have accomplished something. And they meet the friendly members of the forum. And they grow to like Porteus more and more.

If it's not working (s)he may register and report, or simply (quietly)
switch to something else.
Well, there are a lot of other Porteus DEs to choose from. I tried several, including XFCE, and stayed with one that I liked. Have you tried Cinnamon?

Please note that most of the problems mentioned do not occur
in porteus 3.2.2 - so where exactly is the improvement from
the user's point of view?
If a user has a system that works for them and that they like why would they change?

But I agree when upgrading to a newer release of something it's reasonable to expect all the same functionality minus the shortcomings.

I think (most?) Users who have problems with MPV will think ... WTF ... and install VLC
(another big size module)

@donald, don't get me wrong, but if in your opinion Porteus 4 has no advantage over 3.2.2, why don't you keep using 3.2.2 instead?

I have not checked in detail which of the new files are already
built in in 4.0.

Here's a Xfce module for you to test the Mousepad theme: http://www.mediafire.com/file/2327wm9c5 ... e-test.xzm

Regarding the Mpv not being able to open DVDs, have you tried to drag the VIDEO_TS folder to it? You can jump to the chapter you want on the bottom left.

Thanks, Mousepad now uses its color schemes correctly.. :good:
If you need some styles files i could upload a zip file containing a pile of them.

Yep,
MPV then automatically shifts through all VOB files (and exits then)
but can't display any.
Imo MPV does not use the libdvdcss which is needed to play the DVD.
libdvdcss is not shipped with porteus,(legal reasons?).
You have to download (USM) and activate this lib.
But even then it does not work.
Normally, libdvdread integrates libdvdcss if available.

this might be an occasion when you need to get a package directly from current (or build it)
possibly: https://slackonly.com/pub/packages/curr ... slonly.txz
so that it matches libdvdread... maybe? (if you hadn't already tried that)
(i think it's actually the other way around, in that libdvdcss is an(optional) build dependency of libdvdread, but build matching might still apply)

@ ncmprhnsbl
Yep, this is the version i used. (libdvdcss-1.4.0-x86_64-2_slonly)

This might be a hint:

Configuration Options
===> The following configuration options are available for libdvdread-6.0.0:
DVDCSS=on: Encrypted DVD support via libdvdcss
===> Use 'make config' to modify these settings

may be this was not set at compile time??

@ n0ctilucient
In theory we here in Germany have the right to make a copy (backup)
of our property for private use....BUT...this law has an appendix:
"..if you do not circumvent (any kind of) copy protection"..

A simple lettering on the packaging, "this CD / DVD is copy protected"
and we are not allowed to copy (legally)..LOL

so yeah, it seems libdvdread needs compile configure arg: --with-libdvdcss (and have libdvdcss installed in build enviroment)
and
mpv needs needs compile configure args: --enable-dvdnav --enable-dvdread
but even after doing this, i get:

Code: Select all

$ mpv dvd://
Playing: dvd://
libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 6.0.0
libdvdnav: DVD Title: DVD_VIDEO
libdvdnav: DVD Serial Number: 30904282
libdvdnav: DVD Title (Alternative): 
libdvdnav: DVD disk reports itself with Region mask 0x00e50000. Regions: 2 4 5

libdvdread: Attempting to retrieve all CSS keys
libdvdread: This can take a _long_ time, please be patient

libdvdread: Get key for /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.VOB at 0x00000e20
libdvdread: Error cracking CSS key for /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.VOB (0x00000e20)
libdvdread: Elapsed time 2
libdvdread: Get key for /VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_0.VOB at 0x000046a0
libdvdread: Error cracking CSS key for /VIDEO_TS/VTS_01_0.VOB (0x000046a0)
libdvdread: Elapsed time 0
and so on...
i'll upload the packages soon to see if you fare any better with them..

ok.. disregard most of that last post .. i didn't have the region set on my hardware(used package: regionset for this)
seems rebuilding libdvdread is not necessary, just mpv:
mpv-0.27.2-x86_64-2_SBo.xzm
note: this build may be missing some of the configure args in the original mpv
these are what i used: (in a SlackBuild)

Code: Select all

./waf configure \
  --prefix=/usr \
  --libdir=/usr/lib${LIBDIRSUFFIX} \
  --confdir=/etc/$PRGNAM \
  --mandir=/usr/man \
  --docdir=/usr/doc/$PRGNAM-$VERSION \
  --enable-dvdnav \
  --enable-dvdread \
  --enable-libmpv-shared \

@ ncmprhnsbl

Tested your module - The decryption (decss) part works.. :good:

Now we need some kind of navigation.
MPV immediately start playing the 1st episode of the DVD,
no DVD-menu to select the content of the DVD.

I was using the gnome-mpv front end. Looks like some recent activity on their github too. The dependencies are?
glib >= 2.44
gtk >= 3.18[2]
mpv >= 0.27
epoxy
lua (optional)
youtube-dl (optional)

It's the only one that will go with xfce.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

seems this limitation will remain:
https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/commi ... eea22071f8
https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/issues/3345
the reasoning being that dvdread/nav don't do it well enough, so disable the function altogether..

gnome-mpv is a nice gui(it's in cinnamon,mate,kde modules) but it's still quite minimal in comparison to gnome-mplayer/mplayer combination..
for example, opening a dvd (via menu)requires > open location>type: dvd://
@donald, although we've solved one mpv bug, i don't expect to make you an mpv convert ;)
