I am using Ubuntu 9.10 64Bit and cannot play DVDs.
I put in the disk and select play with Movie Player.
I then get the message:
Could not read from resource.
If I then go Movie >> Play Disk 'DVD NAME' I get the message:
Totem cannot play this type of media (DVD) because it does not have the appropriate plugins to be able to read from the disc.
Please install the necessary plugins and restart Totem to be able to play this media.
This is followed by a link to http://www.gnome.org/projects/totem/#codecs where I cannot see any means to download the plugin I need.
Also, I have some .dvr-ms files, which are recordings of TV programs made on my old Xp media centre edition computer (which had a TV tuner and an aerial port). These play with Movie Player but there is no audio.
Hope someone can help.
Note: In case it is of any relevance, I am a UK user
