DVD playback
Out of curiosity, is dvd playback possible on an O2? If it is, what are the minimum specs required?

Octane  1x 400Mhz R12k, 1Gb, V8, 6.5.30m (silent fans)
O2 + 1600SW 300Mhz R12K (R10K upgrade mod),  384Mb, 6.5.30m (silent fans)

RE: DVD playback
Hello JacquesT,
Can an O2 play a data DVD or DVD video?
My O2 + reads data DVDs but I have not tested with a DVD video.

RE: DVD playback
My Toshiba can read non-commercial video DVDs, but I've not found a way to playback the files yet.

There is a dvd decrypt library in nekochan, I've not tried it yet.

RE: DVD playback
DVD playback on the O2 is not really an option, it just doesn't have enough CPU power, and the best program to use is Mplayer 1.1.1, and it doesn't really work well on the o2 due to the O2's openGL version 1.1. I believe Vpro was openGL version 1.2 and that's what the software was written for.

It's been a few years since I played with Mplayer 1.1.1 - I'll play with it again on my o2 and report back, but I do recall there being some deal ending problems

I can confirm this. My O2 (R10k/250, 1GB of RAM) is too slow (I tried to use the mplayer few years ago).

I am probably posting from moose, SGI O2 with R10k/250, 1GB RAM,  and running IRIX 6.5.27
