    Did you install libdvdcss? It is not installed when you install ubuntu-restricted-extras due to issues with the legality of it in some jurisdictions.

    ..and get this .. but I think I got it ...

    Code:
    ventrical@ventrical-MS-7798:~$ sudo apt-get install libdvdcss
    [sudo] password for ventrical:

    Package libdvdcss is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or

    Thanks again... Working great. I want to try it on the new 4.0 kernel. mac4man helped me with this a while back but I haven't used a dvd in so long I just totally forgot

    Regards..

    edit:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install libdvdread4
    
    
    then
    
    
    sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
