Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 996275
[RFE] libdvdread 4.2.0 and libdvdnav 4.2.0 - solves issues with NEW DVDs
Last modified: 2016-07-20 07:55:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Versions below 4.2 of both libs are consistently causing crashes across multiple products - dvdbackup, vlc etc. when used against relatively _new_ DVD disks.
I personally ran into the issue with the crash of vlc which reported:
"libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
Please send bug report - no VTS_TMAPT". Same message was received when i ran "dvdbackup"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
i tried two new ( after 2011 ) DVD and got 100% crashes. Older (<2008 ) work fine. i don't have any other new DVD i can try. But this issue is confirmed based on the amount of posts across other products and OS.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. plug a new DVD ( i used "Metamorphosis by Tracy Anderson method" DVD
2. attempt to take a backup with dvdbackup: dvdbackup -M ...
3. observe "libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
Please send bug report - no VTS_TMAPT" message and crash of the dvdbackup
4. attempts to utilize vlc to convert the dvd into avi file lead to over 24 hours continues processing on AMD 4core with >10GB output file. Obviously this is incorrect.
crash with ""libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.10 for DVD access
Please send bug report - no VTS_TMAPT"" message
normal exit of the main program
upgrade of libs to the latest available from the site (http://dvdnav.mplayerhq.hu/) version (4.2 ) solves this issue.
