Hey guys, this is the first time I've ever tried to play music on Linux from a DVD, can you believe that?  Anyhow, thought I should know how to do it for when I sell a Linux pc.  I used VLC and it did not work.  I also tested the DVD Drive by viewing some files on a DVD, so that seems to be working.  How do I play music on Linux Mint?  This is what I see.

What kind of audio files are these on that DVD? Dolby Digital, MP3, DTS or PCM? A DVD can even hold high resolution LPCM files, so it is important to know what kind of files you are trying to play.

 

Also, and maybe even more importantly, what is the exact bit rate of those files. Different software can playback different CODECs, but only of specific bit rate files.

At a guess I would say that those look like the kind of error messages you get when VLC encounters a badly scratched disc. Can you explain the situation a little further, are these music files ones that you burned to a dvd, or are they on a commercial music CD (I have heard of audio DVDs but they are very uncommon), or are they something else. What files do you see when you look at the dvd in the file browser? Do you have multiple disc drives, were you possible trying to point VLC at the wrong one?

to rp88, I use to collect DVD Audio discs, I have a couple of hundred. Although I do not think that they even make them anymore, about 10 years ago they were fairly common. I have a bunch of Neil Young and Talking Heads and ELP and literally hundreds of great albums on DVD Audio. My new thing is buying classic albums on Blu Ray Audio discs.

Sorry guys, this was a music CD, and was just a commercial music CD.  It did not show up in File Manager, but was able to play on Windows 7.

Good stuff guys, will do asap.  I was surprised to see that I could not do this without installing something, and maybe I can but wasn't able to figure it out.  I'll bet I can do it on my KDE Install! LOL, just kidding.

Yes, a CD is a lot easier to play than a music DVD. I really can't even think of any software that is available on Linux in order to play a music DVD.

VLC would be your best bet to handle a music dvd, it does claim to be able to handle them, but if that were to fail I'm not sure if anything else could handle such discs on linux.

Usually accept that during Install on Mint, or is this different Nick.  I think it is called Third Party Extras or something to that effect.  I will look at it asap and install restricted extras.

Yes, as can be seen in the image posted by Brian, it says 'Software Manager' on top. :)

 

If it were a .deb file randomly downloaded, would show the GDebi Package installer instead.
