The way i managed to see the movie with mplayer was
mplayer -cdrom-device /dev/acd1 vcd://
and the way to rip the movie was:
mencoder -cdrom-device /dev/acd1 vcd:// -o \\
/usr/local/misc/MIKE_MOORE/MM.avi -oac mp3lame -ovc lavc -lavcopts \\
# file /usr/local/misc/MIKE_MOORE/MM.avi
/usr/local/misc/MIKE_MOORE/MM.avi: RIFF (little-endian) data, AVI, 352 x
288, 25.00 fps, video: DivX 4, audio: MPEG-1 Layer 3 (stereo, 44100 Hz)
Thats how far i went.
The vcd:// part of the mplayer "url" maybe made me think VCD has something
to do with DivX.
I'll have the CD at work in Friday, and maybe i can give you more info/
read some mplayer docs and have a result.
