    Can't watch my DVDs

    I get:
    An error occurred:

    Could not read from resource.
    I looked around, couldn't find anything. If anyone can help me out that'd be great.

    Thanks,

    I had a similar issue and was given this link...

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...ts/PlayingDVDs

    I installed the libdvdread4 files and that fixed it, and now my dvd's run just fine.

    Hope this helps.

    I did both those, and it still doesn't work.

    EDIT: I found and installed VLC, and it works like a charm.

    Thanks guys for you help.
