Hello,

I plan to buy me a DVD, and I had look at http://www.atitech.com and found that
they have a programm for reading the DVD without other extension card needed with
certains video cards (one of them is mine...).

The problem is that the programm is for win* and that I don't have win*.

So my question, is there such a programm for linux (and not one who needs a PV@1500)?

And what DVD should I buy: I would like to be able to view film with it and use it as
source for audio copy (cdrecord/cdrdao)?

Thanks for all informations!

Please, don't cc to me: I am on the list...

There is no formal support for DVD playback under Linux yet.  My project
is being moved and expanded.  Look for an announcement this week...

I am not sure how the ATI handles DVD, if it is just software playback, or
if there is actual hardware decoding.  

As far as DVD drives go, I have a SCSI 6x Pioneer 303 that works good.
There is work to migrate the DVD ioctrl's to SCSI from IDE.

No there is not any linux software only (or even hardware assisted 
for that matter) DVD player available right now.  At least not to my 
knowledge.  There are a couple efforts underway to get both 
software only and hardware assisted DVD playback to the linux 
OS.  If you are interested in helping in any of the development 
project I suggest you take a look at the archives of and possibly 
subscribe to the linuxdvd mailing list.  The host site (which has 
subscription and archive links) is linuxdvd.corepower.com
