Comment(by rconstantine1@…):

 I have the same issue. Out of about 200 DVDs turned ISOs, the following
 won't play sound. All were ripped with DVDFab (v5 I think). Most are only
 the main movie, but a few have the menu.

 The Bourne Identity
 Bringing Gollum to Life
 Chain Reaction
 The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
 Clear and Present Danger
 Die Another Day
 Galaxy Quest
 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
 I, Robot
 All discs from The Lord of the Rings Extended Edition
 The Mask of Zorro
 Minority Report
 Moulin Rouge
 Monty Python and the Holy Grail
 Mr. & Mrs. Smith
 O, Brother Where Art Thou
 Pearl Harbor
 Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl
 The Recruit
 Spiderman 2
 Stargate - Ultimate Edition
 Titan A.E.
 X-Men: The Last Stand

 Like I said, I have a zillion others that work. For now, I'm using the
 field (can't remember what it is named) in the DB table to use Xine on
 just those movies. I'm running Mythdora 12.23 with MythTV .23-fixes.

 My original install of Myth was from Mythdora 4, which I think was running
 .20. I couldn't use the internal player for movies at all with that, so
 I'd say this is a huge improvement. I suppose it must be pretty tricky to
 figure out why Xine and VLC play these ISOs just fine when the internal
 Myth player won't or you'd have worked it all out by now.

 I'm wondering if the tool used to rip has anything to do with it. I tried
 to re-rip The Bourne Identity, but my DVD drive in my Myth box is either
 busted (which I'm just now learning about since I never use it), or it
 can't read these discs for some reason. I'll try some others.
