Again, what would be helpful here is output from cd-info (from libcdio) This gives a list of tracks and shows what something about the track format.

Also information from cd-read (also from libcdio) would be helpful. cd-read allows you to specify a track mode for reading a track. So what would be useful is to know if cd-read can read any the MPEG tracks (which probably start at track 2) in any of the modes.

I've got the same (or a very similar) problem with a VCD. I purchased a VCD of the Hindi movie "Hanuman" when I was in India. I've played other VCDs from India on my Windows XP, Mac OS X, and Linux boxes, but this "Hanuman" VCD refuses to be played on any of them. I purchased the VCD in a "Planet M" store in a very large mall, so I'm pretty sure it's an authorized disc and not a pirate knockoff.

I thought to rip the video tracks out to MPEG, and just play those. However, on my Ubuntu box, "vcdxrip" gives:

More interesting, "vcd-info" gives the following and then aborts due to an assertion failure:

Following up on "USL India. http://www.uslindia.com" it's a CD copy protection company "Ultra Softlock Private Limited". As far as I can tell, the VCD disc is protected by their DiscKeeper Video protection scheme, and neither vcdxrip nor vcd-info truly understand it.

Good news, it's not a pirate disc. Bad news, I still can't watch the movie on any of my computers. Any developers interested in this VCD should contact me by e-mail at: -email is unavailable-

My guess is that the SVCD was authored incorrectly in that track 2 (the avseq01.mpg) track was not written in MODE2 format.

That this kind of problem happened to someone in 2002 and to another person in 2005 doesn't necessarily mean there's a bug in vcdimager; it could mean that someone made the same mistake in 2005 as someone in 2002. The information needed here would be how the SVCD was authored.

In order confirm or deny this conjecture, output of cd-info (from libcdio) may help. It shows the format of each track.

Finally, vcddebug has been replaced by vcd-info. And the current versions of vcdimager is 0.7.22. (0.7.23 will probably be out fairly soon)

Still getting the same error message trying to rip a VCD here, using vcdimager-0.7.20-2ubuntu1. It would be interesting to know what the problem is, and if a fix is even possible.

There is somehow a problem reading the form2 information that makes up the mpeg in track #2.

I think Suse has a later version of vcdimager now. Try with that. I know there is a Suse vcdimager 0.7.20 version here:

hi,     
i can't extract a svcd. vcdxrip only a   
xml-file and the file avseq01.mpg which has 0 bytes.  

the command:  
 /usr/bin/vcdxrip --cdrom-device=/dev/sr0    
->
