Xine does not open the ISO here for some reason.
Xine has a mind of it's own at times. I use the command line from within the directory housing the ISO image. The following works, but an alias saves a lot of typing[prompt ]$ xine dvd:/$PWD/<name>.iso
To make it generic to be used with any ISO image, this works;[prompt ]$
xine dvd:$PWD/$(basename *.[i-I][s-S][o-O])
I've aliased it with this line in my .alias file.alias xd2='xine dvd:$PWD/$(basename *.[i-I][s-S][o-O])'
So now if I navigate into a directory with a movie ISO image all I type is xd2
to open the image at the menu
A second alias steps directly to the movie, skipping the menus.alias xdm2='xine dvd:$PWD/$(basename *.[i-I][s-S][o-O])/1'
I made a menu entry, Xine DVD
, so I could just click the image and Open With --> Xine DVD
and set that as the default if I wanted a one click
solution. The same entry doesn't
work in KDE4, and I haven't found the correct command yet to use in a KDE4 menu entry. With the aliases still working, I haven't really looked very hard.
If you don't have a separate ~/.alias
file, you can add the above aliases to your ~/.bashrc
, and they will then work from any new terminal opened after the .bashrc save.
