Mplayer doesn't play copy-protected (protections using corrupt/illegal frames
like Sony ARccOS etc) DVDs.
Try to play any of such DVDs.
The problem is that mplayer in pkgsrc doesn't use internal dvdread library, but
is linked against the external one. The external dvdread library is old, lacks
this functionality and isn't maintained any more by upstream AFAICS. Mplayer
should use internal dvdread library wherever possible. Most of platforms should
be OK, DragonFly lacks some support in configure script though.
The patch which makes mplayer to support DragonFly and to use internal dvdread
library in OpenBSD, Linux and DragonFly (all tested) is available at:
According to mplayer configure script it's probably OK for NetBSD, FreeBSD etc
as well, but as I can't test them, I'm not 100% sure.
The patch to support DragonFly in configure script is already sent to upstream.
