guiverci just answered a query (sort of) re: playing dvds on UF (https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2484230); i used lunar; but VLC is crashing ...   if someone has free time (& energy) can they check out if I did something wrong, missed a step or we have an issue with VLC for lunar  (on dvd media?)   Fastest read will likely be https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/vlc/+bug/200860203:40

* guiverc is convinced I'm missing thing, but can't recall what... known issue? or ????03:40
* guiverc out taking dog for walk awhile...03:43
arraybolt3I have a machine with a DVD drive and a movie around here I can use for that. Might try it in a bit.03:50

guivercthanks arraybolt3 , no hurry.. 05:26
arraybolt3guiverc: Sadly, I won't be able to test after all. I have somehow managed to misplace both of the DVDs I have around here (I only have a couple, I don't hardly ever watch movies anymore).06:57
arraybolt3*both of the encrypted DVDs, I mean06:58
guivercno problem... I moved on to other things;  will return to it (probably only) if I get reply from OP on UF ; but thanks Aaron 06:58
arraybolt3I have one unencrypted DVD that I found but I don't know if it would test properly (I guess the producer couldn't or didn't care to encrypt it) and it has a section near the end that is unreadable.07:00
* guiverc has no idea what DVDs I have; just a pile of movies from different decades... some good, some terrible (but were probably cheap) I never thought about how data on them is stored; never cared.07:05
