• Players can play DVD disc even when the disc is unmounted


    Hi
    It’s not exactly a problem, but a doubt.
    I use KDE Plasma desktop environment on my system, auto-mounting of removable devices is NOT enabled. I can play DVD discs with VLC, SMPlayer, Keffeine and Dragon players even when both “mount” command and Dolphin file manager indicate that the disc is unmounted. Why?

  • A DVD doesn’t have to be mounted for VLC to be played, it will connect to the DVD station automatically when given the command.

  • @Bryanpwo Thanks for your reply.
    What about the other players mentioned?
    Is there any way to prevent playback when the disc is unmounted?

    ps: audio CDs also can be played while unmounted.

  • Do the discs open and play automatically, when inserting the disc? If that’s the case, you have to look at your preference settings.

  • @Bryanpwo said in Players can play DVD disc even when the disc is unmounted:

    No. I just think weird players to play unmounted discs while device notifier shows the tooltip “Click to access this device from other applications.”

  • Ah, okay. I don’t have a solution for this, my guess is that all mediaplayers can open discs work like that.

  • knowledge is amazing. I like to read the comments of everyone.
