[vox-tech] mplayer puzzle

Hello, folks:

I've upgrade my ubuntu recently from 7.x to 8.04 and have installed
mplayer. When I tried to watch a movie by typing: mplayer dvd://1,
this came out:

hai@zodiac:~$ mplayer dvd://1
MPlayer 1.0rc2-4.2.3 (C) 2000-2007 MPlayer Team
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU          6400  @ 2.13GHz (Family: 6,
Model: 15, Stepping: 6)

Compiled with runtime CPU detection.
mplayer: could not connect to socket

Playing dvd://1.

and it's frozen. Nothing works. From my earlier version of ubuntu, it was OK.

I checked this:

hai@zodiac:~$ ls -ltr /dev/dvd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 2008-08-20 23:40 /dev/dvd -> /dev/scd0

scd0 should be my first dvd drive (I have 2nd one, which is scd1).

Besides the above problem, I have two more questions if you don't mind:

1. can I create the soft link like this:
ln -s /media/cdrom /dev/dvd

what the difference b/w dvd/scd0 and /media/cdrom ?

2. When I played a movie before (under my ubuntu 7.x) , sometime the
unwanted directorial comments come out, how can I remove it?

Thanks a lot!
