Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-05-27 14:02:49 EDT
What sort of filesystem is on a SVCD?
Comment 2 Michele Ginestra 2003-05-27 14:40:34 EDT
Well, I'm not sure...
I think it's similar to an iso9660, but it has no ECC.
Comment 3 Alan Cox 2003-06-08 08:41:47 EDT
The standard kernel drivers do not support treating SVCD file images as mpeg
video.  SVCD is very different to iso9660. Its a small iso9660 file system in
track 0 with track 1, 2, .. n being the chapters of the SVCD/VCD recorded more
like an audio CD than anything else

Changing to enhancement request

To look at a SVCD, one can use the vcd-info or the vcdxrip program
from VCDImager.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
