Who on this list is working on an active project thats trying, in 
some way, to get DVD onto Linux?

I'm currently involved with such a project and would like to discuss 
approaches being used and what the specific goals and products of 
the projects are or will be.

My only slight contribution is sending as many emails as i can to various
companies requesting that they assist in this endeavor. Whether that
means releasing their own driver, giving out specs so that one can be
written, or agreeing to work with a developer under NDA. Unfortunately
most of my efforts were without success. For the creative labs driver we
are limited by the information available on the C-Cube chip. Since giving
away my Dxr2 kit to my sister several months ago, i have not been able to
do any more than this.

I would be very interested to hear more about your project and what you
had to do to get access to the information required.
