No. CD's do not play, but this is old news. The last version to play cd's is 0.86i.
I tried running the stand-alone version of 0.86i along side 2.2.0 but it threw up
errors about msvcrt.dll. This is no doubt because msvcrt.dll has been replaced in
the system folder. You might be able to figure out a way around this with
registry hacks (known dlls).

Just curious if anyone has tried to play DVDs with VLC v2.2.0?  It will not play DVDs on my system, neither the .ZIP or the .EXE package.  When i click Media -> Open Disc... the DVD drive spins / lights up, but when i click the Play button, i get this error message:

  Playback failure:
  DVDRead could not open the disc "h:".
  Your input can't be opened:
  VLC is unable to open the MRL 'dvd:///h:/'. Check the log for
  details.

(My DVD is the H: drive.)  

Too bad, VLC was my default DVD player.

I noticed that too otherwise I would have never even tried to test a regular audio CD with VLC.

DVD playback seem to be a little bit broken but what worked here on my system was when in the 'Media -> Open Disc'-dialogue to click browse and actually select the video_ts folder on the DVD.

 

@Schwups. I have no problems with FLAC files.

Confirmed.

@Schwups. I have no problems with FLAC files.

 

My first suspects are MSVCRT.DLL ( here 7.0.9981.0) or Kstub.ini, but I'm not sure.

Ok, partial success.  VLC 2.2.0 does open the DVD using MiKl's method.  However, DVD playback is choppy -- every few seconds, video pauses then skips ahead (dropping frames?).  Not really watchable.  

VLC 2.1.5 works flawlessly, and DVD playback is smooth as a baby's butt (as with my other players).  System: Pentium 4, 2.4 ghz, 1g RAM.  DVD: 16x, 2048 KB buffer, ATAPI.  

Any hints for VLC settings that might help improve playback before i go back to v2.1.5?  ("Increase priority" is already checked.)

DVD playback is Ok here, not choppy, but the equalizer fails.  However it  works with 0.8.6i. The equalizer also works if I play e.g. mp3 with 2.2.0. 

System: ME; Celeron 440 Conroe-L on Intel G41; 2 GB RAM; DVD: Read 16x, SATA, Buffer 2 MB, Nvidia 7800GT (256 MB)

@ DougB. In case you have not tested it yet - increase the cache and see if it improves playback.

-> Open Media dialogue -> DVD -> on the buttom click on 'more options'. I have 4000 msec. there and smooth playback.

 

@ Schwups. Equalizer indeed does not work while playing DVDs.

Odd, today the equalizer of 2.2.0 is in a good mood. I just played the same video. I don't remember that I changed settings since yesterday.

Maybe interesting here: https://forum.videol...p?f=14&t=124578

@DougB What about your CPU load? Did you try to deaktivate the gpu acceleration?
