ogle - DVD player with support for DVD menus
[--check] [--debug] [-u <cli|gui> [path]]
Ogle is an open source DVD player that supports DVD menus and navigation.
You should be able to play DVDs directly from the DVD drive, a mounted fs,
an image file or a copy on your harddrive.
Keyboard commands are available for navigation if you have
input foucus in the video window.
See the oglerc man page or /usr/share/ogle/oglerc file for keybindings.
Screen shots can be saved in Ogle's current working directory as
If you run xscreensaver it will be deactivated every 50 seconds
(don't use a timeout less than this ;)
Runs a few checks on the dvd setup and exits
This enables output of extensive debug information.
Use this when sending bug reports.
These make the specified part(s) of Ogle run inside a GDB (The GNU Debugger)
session. This can be usefull for tracing and crash examination.
- -u cli [path]
Start Ogle without the graphical user interface. This is the default if
the graphical user interface has not been installed. If path is given
it attempts to use that as the root of the DVD to play. If it's left out
then it defaults to /dev/dvd.
- -u gui [path]
Start Ogle with a graphical user interface. This is the default if
the graphical user interface has been installed. If path is given
it attempts to use that as the root of the DVD to play and begins playback
- The -u options are (of course) mutually exclusive.
If you run Ogle on Solaris and have a FFB2 frame buffer (a Creator 3D)
then you can use its hardware yuv2rgb to gain faster playback speed. This
is still experimental code, so be warned. It is enabled by setting the
environment variable USE_FFB2_YUV2RGB.
If mlib is used for scaling of video, OGLE_MLIB_SCALEMODE will decide which type will be used. The available options are:
NEAREST, BILINEAR, BICUBIC and BICUBIC2.
If set to 0, it disables the use of the XVideo extension.
If set to 0, it disables the use of the XShm extension.
If set, enables a workaround for buggy OSS audio drivers.
It closes/reopens the audio device instead of resetting it when changing
When set, a few tones will be output in each audio channel everytime the audio parameters change and the OSS audio output driver is used.
