platform BeOS

Hello! Jean Marc Dresler;

Since a week ago I get the following message if i try to play a coded disk: 
(or VLC just crashes..)
I tried most of the versions 'released' since then...

css error: drive would not authenticate
dvd error: fatal failure in CSS  

The same videolan version does function with this DVD in Linux without 
So I suspect there's a malfunction in the BeOS part somewhere.

The last version which does work with beos and the above DVD disc is (no 
problem at all):


every version which was placed as snapshot on the webpage since then does NOT 
function with BeOS.
I noticed a small drop in file size since this version... ?

Non-coded disks like dances with wolves have no problem. I can view them just 
like I could once view coded disks with the VLC... (My drive is RPC-1 
officially: Pioneer 6x DVD pre 1 jan 2000 ATAPI drive). Did you or someone 
else change something regarding this or something??)

Can you please forward this to the right person who might know what to do 
with this problem?

Thanks in advance,

Rudolf Cornelissen.
(Hoping for a useable VLC with BeOS soon...)
