Hey guys, i've got the libdvdread packages & codecs installed, but I can't seem to get any DVDs to play.....DivX, Quicktime, MPEG, WMV & Avi movies play fine in MPlayer, though I only get sound in Xine/Movie Player. However I can't get DVDs to play in any media player, including Ogle (yes i've always used it), I get an error output telling me:


FATAL[ogle_mpeg_ps]: dvdreadblocks failed

On some DVDs I can access the menu, but it won't play the film I just get the error message above.
Have I done something wrong or am I missing a package or something? Any help would be much appreciated! ;)

do you have libdvdcss2 installed?
if not add the medibuntu repository to get it https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu
