I am able to play such a disc using VLC, but I am wondering if any music player supports the DVD-A format.
- DVD-Audio - Wikipedia
- Idea #22415: Please add full support for DVD-Audio and LPCM - Ubuntu Brainstorm
Example DVD-A releases:
- Porcupine Tree - Fear Of A Blank Planet
- Steven Wilson - Insurgentes
- King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King (40th anniversary edition)
I checked Rhythmbox and Banshee - I found no option like Play Disc or Open Disc, so I have no idea how I could even try to start playing a DVD-A disc.
This has also nothing to do with missing plug-ins or codecs - the packages
ubuntu-restricted-extras were installed on my machine before.
I guess I am stuck with VLC (Totem shows a DVD menu, but then hangs). However, I am missing the regular music player experience - ability to change order of tracks, adding tracks to a playlist, listening only to selected tracks, etc.
