Documentation:Streaming HowTo/Stream a DVD
Note: Under Unix/Linux, you must have write access to the device corresponding to your DVD drive. For that, you should be in the disk or cdrom group (look at the permissions in /dev). If you're not, add yourself to the group:
# adduser your_login disk_or_cdrom
and then restart your session.
Stream a DVD with VLC
% vlc -vvv --color dvdsimple:/dev/dvd --sout udp://192.168.0.12 --ttl 12 --sout-all
- /dev/dvd is the name of your DVD drive (put D: under Windows if D is the letter of your DVD drive) or the directory where you copied your DVD,
- 192.168.0.42 is either:
- the IP address of the machine you want to unicast to;
- or the DNS name the machine you want to unicast to;
- or a multicast IP address.
- 12 is the value of the TTL (Time To Live) of your IP packets (which means that the stream will be able to cross 11 routers).
- sout-all allows you to stream all soundtracks and subtitles
If you want to stream the DVD continuously, add the --loop option.
