How to enable DVD drives

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

is there a way to enable the usage of the built-in DVD drives so that users can watch movies?
Thanks for help.

You need to enable 'removable devices' support in the wizard.

Movies (video/audio codec) must be supported by the browser. If they are not supported then VLC plugin would be needed.

I could also create a wrapper which runs VLC player automatically once DVD is inserted. Please contact me through kiosk customized builds if you are interested.

Thank you.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
