[Solved] My installation of VLC will not play audio CDs

I have the current vlc 3.0.11.1-6. It will not play any audio cd I have tried. I have been working on this since yesterday afternoon. I have searched the VLC wiki and the internet. I have also uninstalled vlc and reinstalled it. I am coming to believe that the current version of VLC on Arch Linux is missing module cdda. Here is the VLC debug log:

main debug: nothing to play

I believe the relevant info is the lines:

main debug: `cdda:///dev/cdrom' gives access `cdda' demux `any' path `/dev/cdrom'
main debug: creating demux: access='cdda' demux='any' location='/dev/cdrom' file='/dev/cdrom'
main debug: looking for access_demux module matching "cdda": 18 candidates
main debug: no access_demux modules matched
main debug: creating access: cdda:///dev/cdrom
main debug: (path: /dev/cdrom)
main debug: looking for access module matching "cdda": 25 candidates
main debug: no access modules matched

https://wiki.videolan.org/CD/ states that the module name is cdda. When I run "vlc --list", no module named cdda is listed.

Re: [Solved] My installation of VLC will not play audio CDs

error: package 'libcdio' was not found

Nowhere in any of my searching have I seen any mention of that. So, it's something I need to install?

Thank you, seth

PS - Installed it, now vlc is playing CDs. Thanks!

Re: [Solved] My installation of VLC will not play audio CDs

I simply checked the optional dependencies of vlc and that sounds pretty relevant ;-)
Idk, whether it's gonna fix it, but I have that library (hard dep for mpd & mpv) and the vlc cdda module.

Edit: too late…
