2017-05-11 11:27:38 -0500 commented question Playing DVD Folders

Yeah, it seems to be narrowed down to RPM fusion. A kodi forum member suggested I open a bug report with them. I am by no means an expert user and I couldn't really explain what exactly what went wrong here. Seems like a wrong version of libdvdnav was packaged with RPMFusion? That makes sense because the default Videos app with Fedora actually plays a DVD, and if I am understanding this, that has nothing to do with RPM. I used RPM Fusion to install VLC and Kodi and those are the 2 apps that are not playing DVD folders.

I have also opened a topic on kodi forums. Im starting to narrow down the problem... I think it has something to do with: libdvdnav-x8664-linux. I did: sudo dnf list installed | grep libdvdnav libdvdnav.x8664 5.0.3-4.fc24 @anaconda. It looks like a F24 version got installed somehow, would this be the issue?

It was already installed... sudo dnf list installed | grep libdvdcss libdvdcss.x86_64 1.4.0-1.fc25 @fedora-multimedia

2017-05-10 01:12:38 -0500 commented question Is there a way to set preferences for updates in fedora 25?

I don't think there is a built in feature for that. Maybe you could make a dnf update script and have the script run as a startup app.

The GStreamer Multimedia Codecs and Multimedia Codecs - Base are installed.

2017-05-09 19:22:38 -0500 commented question Why are drive settings greyed out?

I still cant figure this out but I can add that the HDD is a WD MyBook, I have 2 identical ones. One is recognized like an internal HDD. The second is recognized as if its a USB thumb drive, the one with no settings available to change.

2017-05-09 19:22:37 -0500 commented answer VLC uninstalled itself?

Thanks to your Grep suggestion, I have discovered that certain GStreamer codecs and VLC cannot be installed at the same time, one will overwrite the other. I wonder if this is related to my other issue. link text

Nothing is logged for today in that file. Im not rebooting during updates so idk what updates would have not finished correctly. Still at a loss.

2017-05-09 14:27:03 -0500 asked a question VLC uninstalled itself?

How could this have possibly happen? VLC was installed. Installed some additional GS streamer codecs. Did an update. Rebooted. VLC is GONE and had to re-install? What? Why? NEVER told it do remove. Ever happen to anyone else?

2017-05-09 14:25:09 -0500 asked a question Playing DVD Folders

After a recent re-image, I've been having trouble with DVD rip folders playing the IFO file. Before my re-image I could use VLC or Kodi to play DVD rips from the IFO, everything worked fine. Now, nothing happens with a click. VLC or Kodi wont play them. What happened? Maybe a codec problem? I dont know, I installed GS streamer codecs already. Any ideas? Not interested in re-encoding to a single file so please no suggestions for that. I would just like to get IFOs working again.

EDIT: This IS a Fedora issue and not an app specific problem. In testing further, I put in a real DVD that Kodi should be playing, but it does not play, says insert disc when it IS inserted. For some reason, this install of Fedora WONT play any type of DVD format that has .IFO files regardless of app used.

I already added RPM fusion free/non-free for the VLC install and have downloaded GStreamer Codecs. I dont know what more to do.

2017-05-07 13:40:16 -0500 asked a question How to install webcam

I decided to try Skype for linux but need the webcam working 1st. I plugged it, booted up, and loaded cheese, but the picture is no good, just RGB static. I can find no useful information searching the internet on how to get a webcam to properly work in Fedora. Is there some useful information that I missed on how to properly install or setup a webcam?

2017-05-04 23:30:19 -0500 commented question Why are drive settings greyed out?

It is USB 3.0. I used to have the option for all my hard drives but now the one is greyed out after I re-imaged my OS SSD.

2017-05-04 16:37:06 -0500 asked a question Why are drive settings greyed out?

In gnome disks, was able to change power settings to spool down HDD's after 30 minutes. One of my external drives, the option for drive settings is greyed out. Why is this and how is it fixed? I also notice there is no disk assessment giving temperature for that drive. The Drive works fine for me, no problems. Just don't need it running all the time.
