    Question Just got DVDs to play--they're all skippy-like. Help?

    Okay, I just got DVDs to play on my computer. The problem is they're skipping. I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 and the standard program: Movie Player.

    How do I get the skipping to stop? It's freaky and annoying...D:

    Thanks for any and all help!

    This was my old thread to get them to work: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1245608

    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing.things i have learnt changing from Xp pro to Ubuntu

    I don't know, it used to play dvds perfectly before I switched to Ubuntu. But no, I don't have a spare drive. Unless I can use one from an older computer...? And I don't know how to install them...

    try playing it in VLC and Kaffiene.

    i myself have experienced multimedia that played well in one of those, but horribly in Movie Player.
