Re: [vox-tech] play DVD with mplayer



Thank you, Norm. The new command line seemed OK. However, I found that
my real problem is that I didn't import the needed codec. I am still
suffering from problems related to picking up the right codec file,
but that's another issue deserving a separated thread on its own.

Thanks again,
Hai
