Mojave DVD Player bug - drops .dvdmedia support

Postby Ted » Sat Oct 13, 2018 4:45 pm

DVD Player stopped opening .dvdmedia files in Mojave - you need to put DVDs in Folder/Video_TS format. (Which .dvdmedia files are, just inside a container)

"Bug" may be the wrong word - I'd bet this was a planned decision at Apple - no idea why, DVD Player has supported .dvdmedia since the dawn of man. This is related to DVDPedia if I end up replacing all the .dvdnedia files with Folders I'll have to re-link them in DVDPedia

If you replace all .dvdmedia media files you can use the SQL backend to run a find and replace on the links to change all the links as well. As the format is likely to be consistent. It would be done in the program named Terminal and would be something like this assuming you keep the same name and make it a folder instead with a VIDEO_TS inside:

Code: Select all
cp ~/Library/Application\ Support/DVDpedia/Database.dvdpd ~/Library/Application\ Support/DVDpedia/BackupSQL.dvdpd
sqlite3 ~/Library/Application\ Support/DVDpedia/Database.dvdpd
update ZLINK Set ZURL = replace(ZURL, '.dvdmedia', '/VIDEO_TS');
