Dear folks,

I am running mplayer on Fedora 22 machine.  

I get that I cannot play dvds because :

MPlayer was compiled without libdvdread support.

[olivares at localhost ~]$ mplayer dvd://$(mplayer dvd:// -identify -frames 0 | grep LENGTH | sort -n -t = -k 2 | tail -1 |cut -f 4 -d _) -dvd-device /dev/sr0
No stream found to handle url dvd://
MPlayer was compiled without libdvdread support.
MPlayer SVN-r37420-5.1.1 (C) 2000-2015 MPlayer Team
[olivares at localhost ~]$ mplayer dvd://
MPlayer SVN-r37420-5.1.1 (C) 2000-2015 MPlayer Team

Playing dvd://.
No stream found to handle url dvd://

Exiting... (End of file)
[olivares at localhost ~]$

[olivares at localhost ~]$ rpm -qa libdvdread

'config.h' and 'config.mak' contain your configuration options.
Note: If you alter theses files (for instance CFLAGS) MPlayer may no longer
compile *** DO NOT REPORT BUGS if you tweak these files ***

'make' will now compile MPlayer and 'make install' will install it.
Note: On non-Linux systems you might need to use 'gmake' instead of 'make'.

Please check MTRR settings at /proc/mtrr (see DOCS/HTML/en/video.html#mtrr)

NOTE: Win32 codec DLLs are not supported on your CPU (x86_64) or your
operating system (Linux). You may encounter a few files that cannot
be played due to missing open source video/audio codec support.

Check config.log if you wonder why an autodetection failed (make sure
development headers/packages are installed).

NOTE: The --enable-* parameters unconditionally force options on, completely
skipping autodetection. This behavior is unlike what you may be used to from
autoconf-based configure scripts that can decide to override you. This greater
level of control comes at a price. You may have to provide the correct compiler
and linker flags yourself.
If you used one of these options (except --enable-menu and similar ones that
turn on internal features) and experience a compilation or linking failure,
make sure you have passed the necessary compiler/linker flags to configure.

If you suspect a bug, please read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html.

How can I enable libdvdread support?  It is installed:
[olivares at localhost ~]$ rpm -qa libdvdread
