I noticed this problem many times and I would like to know if there is any solution. So when I mount ISO files and try to watch some AVI files I got vlc errors. If I copy and paste the same files from the mounted ISO files to any folder of my pc then VLC plays them great! Isn't it strange? Any solution for that?

Using fuseiso works without problems.

mkdir test
fuseiso test.iso test

Now you can play your file from the directory. Clean up afterwards:

fusermount -u test
rmdir test

Yes works really great!!! But what is the difference with the default "right click, mount volume" ? Thank you! – Vagelism Sep 23 '12 at 18:44
