encrypted DVD playback failure

Reported by: MacinMan Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 2.2.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Mac OS X


There are no visible messages to report with this bug However, here are the details: with passthrough enabled for the DVD drive and all appropriate software installed: PowerDVD 6 tested in Windows xp professional vlc gxine totem kaffene tested in fedora and ubuntu All software for playing dvds is present INCLUDING libdvdcss When an encrypted DVD is inserted, the media player opens and the guest hangs with no visible errors. and DVD playback does not star. On the other hand non encrypted DVDs play as expected.

The Only error I can report is kaffiene reports that it can't verify the DVD drive's DMA status permission denied or no such device.

One final thing to note. sometimes the player will have to be forced to quit, or the vm crashes. This problem still exists in the 2.2.4 release today

I just wanted to add an additional few all attempts current guest additions were installed for the guest os in the vm.

Also I am pretty sure this is virtual box specific as I tried the 30 day trial of vmware fusion for Mac os x and dvds played fine in my windows vm with powerDVD 6. I was unable to test linux reliably as i had some issues with linux and vmware fusion playing nice together.

Try to set your IDE controller to ICH6, and see if it fixes the problem.

Hi, I have taken the suggestion and went into General/advanced and selected ICH6 for the IDE controller type. So far no change and discs still refuse to start playback. They hang at opening. trying gxine now.

Is this still a problem with VirtualBox 4.1.4?
