    Movie Player Not playing dvd's

    I am using ubuntu 10.04 and the default movie play that is automatically there is not reading dvds.

    It says:
    "Totem connot 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."


    I did a little (not a lot) of looking and have tried one thing so far and have tried:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libdvdread4
    Followed by
    Code:
    sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
    and to no effect

    Any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated.

    does installing all the restricted extras codecs work?


    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

    I'd try another media player like VLC. Also see this if you haven't already.
