DVD Playback?

Java Duke

OK, so I got this - 10.4.6, Radeon 9200, Callisto, AppleI386PCI kext, the card is being recognized as AGP, but no CI/QE - I'm wondering if I need any of those to play DVDs? So far DVD player just shows an error message "A valid video device could not be found for playback [-70017]". VLC just crashes.

Any idea?


Thanks a lot,

AFAIK Koverg's patch won't work on 9200. So far if I enable any of the ATIRadeon, ATIRadeon8500 or ATIRadeon9700, I get a kernel panic. Callisto and AppleI386PCI alone work fine though, I get 1600x1200x32 and it's recognized as an AGP card.

I'm sort of in the same boat. I have a 9800PRO working great with the Callisto drivers, but I can't seem to get the DVD to work. When I launch it i get an error. Here is what it says.

1st step to DVD Playback:


In your XXXXGA.plugin, change "IONDRVFramebuffer" to "CallistoFB"


reboot. You should now have 2D Accel. (Note: Notice how I did not say Accel OpenGL or QE) So far all I can get a 2D Accel. only.


Now VLC 0.8.4 Intel Version should be able to play DVDs.


Also, The CallistoFB GA.plugin edit is not currently compatible with AGPGART.
