I’m trying to diagnose why I can’t play a physical DVD on my system. The disc is loaded, it’s added to the main menu and the play button shows. However upon clicking play the Kodi process becomes non-responsive, the kill command doesn’t even work. The Kodi logs don’t show an error.
What I’ve noticed so far is this is an encrypted disc. Checking the ~/.dvdcss folder shows no keys being created for the disc. There are keys in that folder for other discs, but nothing recent. If I put the same disc in my Ubuntu desktop I get keys in the ~/.dvdcss folder created.
Playing a DVD image (ISO) across SMB seems to fail as well, but it at least created keys.
Thoughts on what else to check or try?
