Sorry if this is a repost, but I can't seem to find the magic Google search syntax that will give me the answer to my question from anywhere.
I'm using 10.04, trying to play a DVD on my drive. I downloaded both VLC and MPlayer including all of the restricted codecs available in synaptic. Also tried installing ffplayer, but that was just a cluster.
When I press play the DVD plays for about 1 second on a black screen and then stops in VLC. MPlayer at least tries to scroll through all the files, but the same thing happens on each "chapter" of the disc.
Since I can't seem to find anything anywhere on any forums about this, someone please, please, please, please help me out. I'm not much of a multimedia guru, but I know enough to know that I need a codec to play filetypes. I also know how to install them.
