update notice: this server has been updated recently (rh7.3 to fc4) but i still haven\'t been able to adjust the build scripts with the new configuration. the last cvs rpms will remain the same in the meantime.
This is an "unofficial" xine release. "Unofficial" just because the xine project does not officially distribute any binary or compiled packages. xine is free software and the source code is always available and licensed under GPL. "Linux DVD Player" is here so you can google for it ;-)
The provided RPMS are built automatically everyday from xine's Sourceforge CVS. This is all you need to play DVDs in linux (with full menu support) and the other media formats xine can handle. For more information please check the xine homepage.
You need to install libdvdcss rpm besides xine-lib and xine-ui. Without libdvdcss you won't be able to watch encrypted DVDs, that is, most of them.
If the files below are some days old that means cvs changes have broken my daily building. Also note that sourceforge public CVS access is getting worse everyday, and if the scripts cannot get the latest version, packages won't be updated.
These rpms are build in a RedHat Linux 7.3 server. Some care is taken to keep them portable across different distros, so they should also work on RH 7.x, 8.0, 9.0, Fedora, Mandrake, Suse, Conectiva...Important notes:
To watch asf/avi files encoded with win32 dlls just install w32codec rpm. This rpm includes the old Video for Windows (vfw) codecs, Windows Media Video 8 (WMV8), WMV9 and Quicktime 6 codecs. these codecs will be used by xine as needed (that is, when native ones aren't available).
You need to download the xine engine (libxine). Get the libxine rpm which more closely matches yourCPU:
libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.i586.rpm for Pentium/Pentium MMX libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.i686.rpm for Pentium II/III/IV libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.k6.rpm for AMD K6 libxine1-(version)-xxxxxx.k7.rpm for AMD Athlon/Duron
If you don't know your CPU just get the i586 package.
Download xine-ui:xine-ui-(version)-xxxxxx.i586.rpm for any CPU.
Install the packages (you need to be root):
# rpm -U libxine1* xine-ui*
If you want full DVD support download and install libdvdcss:
By default, xine expects to find your DVD-ROM at /dev/dvd. Creating a symbolic link to your device is recommended (for example, /dev/hdc or /dev/scd0). The command below should work for most users:
# ln -s /dev/cdrom /dev/dvd
Make sure the DMA is enabled for your DVD-ROM, otherwise playback will be 'jumpy'.
# hdparm -d1 /dev/cdrom
If you want full Windows Media Video and Quicktime support download and install:
If you want full Real Media support download and install:RealPlayer9-184.108.40.206-4.i386.rpm newest version
Type 'xine' at your console window and enjoy...
Hint: consider reading the xine FAQ.
To try an experimental Netscape/Mozilla plugin using xine to play embedded videos, download and install:xine-mozilla-plugin-(version)-xxxxxx.i586.rpm xine plugin for Netscape/Mozilla.
This plugin was not officialy released, it might hang/crash/freeze/burn. in case of trouble just uninstall.
