Playing DVD iso's


hide | show
Hi,

I found a nice Media Player (Gnome's media player is called "Totem") feature this week. I had a DVD with a recording of me on national television this week. I copied it to an .iso image file as I have to return the DVD and I don't have any more blank DVD's. Well, it seem like Gnome's media player can play DVD .iso-files as if they were real DVD's. You can open these files with Totem in 2 ways; after opening Totem:
  • Open the "Movie" menu and choose "Open". Now select the .iso-file.
  • Drag the .iso-file on the Totem media player
In fact there's a third way, which is a bit more technical. You could "mount" the .iso-file on your filesystem as if it where a real DVD-device and then acces this from Gnome as you would acces a real DVD. Though, to do this you still need to do some dark magic. I filed a bug in Gnome once to make it easy to do this but there's noone working on this as far as I know.

By the way: Gnome 2.18 is born! Happy Gnome'ing!

Hey i found another way to mount DVD. If you rip a DVD so you have two folders (AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS) then you can go the properties of the VIDEO_TS folder and add totem on the tab open with. Don't activate it already or all your folders will open in totem (or at least try to open in it) but now when having such a VIDEO_TS folder just right click it and you can choose totem.
