This sounds like something worth looking at then, if I can't get the DVD 
plugin working, thanks.

I compiled the libraary on the machine and I am sure there are no 
instruction set issues, as it would have complained at the time.

The liba52 messages I am seeing are not even errors or warnings I think 
- just information, but they are the last thing I see before the seg 
fault. Short of learning how to use gdb and analysing core dumps, is 
there any way I can increase the verbosity of the error messages?

I am wondering if there is some dependency I am missing. The machine 
does not have a DVD drive installed and the kernel has no UDF or ISO9660 
modules.

I think I have everything configured to read the directory containing 
the copy of the files on the hard disk (not ISO files), so none of the 
above should be required, but I wonder are checks happening anyway.

Thanks I am using the mail archive to follow the thread.
