Virtual Dvd (from directory)

Recommended Posts



I am trying to mount a Directory as a DVD rom (for use in linDVD) to save adding all the files manually in the playlist.

Is there an easy way to do this?

or will I have to make an iso from the directory inc VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS and mount this as a virtual drive with the code:


mount -t iso9660 -o loop filename.iso /media/iso

smplayer is a great mplayer frontend , which can load either ISO images, or VIDEO_TS folders directly. It's desktop independent- just needs qt3 or qt4 (depends on the way it's built)- but no Gnome or KDE binaries.


Sorry, no idea about linDVD. Never used it, and I will never use it in the foreseeable future.

Have tried the folder drop, but no joy.

SMplayer seems to struggle with the menus and picture is jerky ( as my G3 only has an 8M graphics card), but linDVD plays smoothly.

I guess until I find a solution I'll have to keep adding the files manually or making an iso from the folders.
