So your getting No Video or Audio or when you do it is choppy, here is the fix taken from: http://lifehacker.com/350015/enable-dvd-playback-in-ubuntu-in-two-commands

Step 1- Install VLC Media Player in Synaptic Package Manager.

Step 2- In Terminal do the following and press enter after each.

#sudo apt-get install totem-xine libxine1-ffmpeg libdvdread3

#sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread3/install-css.sh

Also install gstreamer plugin through Synaptic.

Now restart and now you should have decent dvd playback.



Enjoy

I tried to do this and I still cant play dvds on Hardy. I get "could not read form resource" error on totem. VLC just doesn't do anything. Am I missing something?

Hi all,

I experienced no problems with DVD playback under Gutsy, as all the packages mentioned here had been installed on my system.

Unfortunately since upgrading to Hardy, I can no longer hear the vocal track when playing DVD's.

I suspect that this has something to do with Pulse Audio.

Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Cheers.
