After many searches in the forum which have not led to the 'pot o' gold' I'm wondering whether this has been asked/suggested before.

Since I've not yet mastered the art of compiling source code for Puppy I'm hoping that someone has already done so with the DVD tools available at SourceForge at this link.

Especially the 'ifo dump' and the 'regionset' utilities.

Or, any other such useful tools from other sources?

One that would be very useful is a tool that would enable 'reading' the region setting on a DVD (disk) and other data pertaining to the video format, etc.

Is it possible to include such tools in Puppy?

gposil,

Many thanks for your link. I've downloaded and will install.

By the way, your "More On Puppy Linux" pages are grrrreat!



battleshooter,

Yes, I've been 'test driving' MediaPup for several weeks now on my PII 350 as a frugal. So far so good!


The reason I've been wondering about a utility that would be able to 'read' the region setting on a DVD (disk) is that beginning several days ago the DVDs I'm burning of Korean TV programs are playing on my 'region free' player but not on my 'region 1' player. I'm suspecting that a recent malware experience in Win98 may have tampered with some settings on my DVD burner or is somehow causing my burnt DVDs to be other than region 1, or in a video format that is not NTSC.

I'd like to analyze the burns I've made with this problem to see precisely what has happened. Do either of you have any suggestions?

Before the malware attack in Win98 (successfully removed by XF-Prot in Puppy) things worked well and all my burns were playable on both my DVD players.

I'm stumped!

When a burn is done with Puppy, can either of you explain the significance of the 'locale setting' that is used by the burner to determine certain characteristics of the DVD structure? This is relatively new territory for me and I've not yet been able to comprehend all the details.

Thanks to the both of you!

@ Hugh,

'Fraid I can't be of much help from this point on concerning your regions question, I'm just a plain Puppy end user giving other folks a hand, if I'm able Confused . Gposil is more likely better equipped to answer your question. Smile

Battleshooter Very Happy

'Locale' is generally associated with the dvd movie format, PAL-Secam, NTSC etc...it is not normally used in association with region.

Would you happen to know what the 'locale setting' actually is and where it is located?

Is it a function of Puppy or of the DVD (burner or disk)?

How can one access the 'locale setting' to determine what it is?

The Pal or NTSC setting is taken from the medium your are copying or burning...if the source is PAL the burn will be PAL etc

gposil,

Is that all there is to it? Then the question has been satisfactorily answered!

When one does not have a clue one is liable to make 'mountains' out of 'molehills!' Duh.

Thanks again! It is very nice that it is simple and uncomplicated...
