DVDFS or Video?

Post by aemulor » Sat Oct 25, 2003 11:32 pm

We'd like some feedback as to what people would like first - DVD Video playback, or DVDROM FS supporing DVD data discs.

I've posted a poll attached to this posting - your feedback will be most usefull.

Cheers,


Neil

Oh no - I selected the wrong choice. I meant to select "DVD video" instead of the DVD filing system. I'm confused - don't you need a working DVD filing system in order to play videos? Why would a DVD filing system on its own be useful at the moment when you can't burn DVDs on RISC OS?

DVDFS is not required to play DVDs - as we proved at the SE show at Guildford.

Cino currently just reads raw data from DVDATAPI without any UDF filing system support (only basic knowlege of the ISO CD format is used to find the location of the first video VOB file)

The poll should read differently : "DVDFS" or "DVDFS +Cino" - I'll ammend it.

Cheers,

Neil

In reply to ksattic: Check out DVD-RAM as a storage medium. 4.7GB per side, read/write 100k times per sector; treat it like a hard disc; there's no separate burning stage. It's an excellent archiving and backup medium. We use them at work in the products we design and manufacture. I'd like to have a DVD-RAM drive in my Risc PC for these purposes. Stuff the video - that's what a DVD player and TV are for.

Not sure I'd have a use for cino as I have a DVD player. MIght buy it though depending on the price.

Not at all certain I'd buy DVDFS for Iyonix. I dont currently have DVD's with data on so I'd not have much use for it for that and the CDFS on the Iyonix has read all the CD's I've needed to read so far.

However if I could write DVD's of any sort then I'd buy it!
I currently write CD's on the Iyonix for the RISC OS side and the capacity of DVD's would make things much easier.

DVDFS support would be essential to grab new customers to the platform - the world has now moved onto BIG data movements (my company uses DVD RAM)

so even just being able to read them would make a huge difference to me and prospectic customers.

Get it working on the Iyonix first then on the RPC.

:D

keep the work up

But what would you read from a DVD data disc that would be of any use on a RISC OS machine? Unless you could write as well as read DVD data discs, I can't think of a reason why DVDFS would be a better idea than a DVD movie player first.

CDFS can only read the first session of a multi-session CD. DVDFS alone would perhaps be more useful for reading all CDs properly rather than reading DVDs.

Personally, I want it for watching DVDs of course :D

I would definitely like DVD video playback. DVDROM FS doesn't really interest me so much as I don't need to access data DVDs and I don't have any CDs that CDFS can not read.

Adrian - I don't understand what you mean by CDFS not reading sessions after the first on a multi-session CD. I thought it had done this for a long time. I just burned a two-session disc now, and it reads both sessions just fine.

It could be that I was using an out of date CDFS module. IIRC I upgraded CDFS after trying a multi-session CD so maybe it works now.

Hi Neil,
When can we expect cino for the RISC PC, i just bought the Foundation DVD, but i cannot read it in my both cd-rom players.
Does the foundation DVD runs in a normal dvd player ???
