    DVD not working

    Hi!

    I am trying to play a DVD for the first time in my life in Ubuntu. I am using VLC but it is not working.I get the next output in the VLC logs:

    Code:
    main debug: processing request item: sr0, node: Playlist, skip: 0
    main debug: resyncing on sr0
    main debug: sr0 is at 4
    main debug: starting playback of the new playlist item
    main debug: resyncing on sr0
    main debug: sr0 is at 4
    main debug: creating new input thread
    main debug: Creating an input for 'sr0'
    main debug: TIMER input launching for 'sr0' : 23560.758 ms - Total 23560.758 ms / 1 intvls (Avg 23560.757 ms)
    qt4 debug: IM: Setting an input
    main debug: using timeshift granularity of 50 MiB, in path '/tmp'
    main debug: `dvd:///dev/sr0' gives access `dvd' demux `' path `/dev/sr0'
    main debug: creating demux: access='dvd' demux='' location='/dev/sr0' file='/dev/sr0'
    main debug: looking for access_demux module: 2 candidates
    dvdnav warning: cannot open DVD (/dev/sr0)
    dvdread error: DVDRead cannot open source: /dev/sr0
    main debug: no access_demux module matching "dvd" could be loaded
    main debug: TIMER module_need() : 10.073 ms - Total 10.073 ms / 1 intvls (Avg 10.073 ms)
    main debug: creating access 'dvd' location='/dev/sr0', path='/dev/sr0'
    main debug: looking for access module: 0 candidates
    main debug: no access module matched "dvd"
    main debug: TIMER module_need() : 0.117 ms - Total 0.117 ms / 1 intvls (Avg 0.117 ms)
    main error: open of `dvd:///dev/sr0' failed
    main debug: finished input
    main debug: dead input
    main debug: changing item without a request (current 4/5)
    main debug: nothing to play
    qt4 debug: IM: Deleting the input
    I used disk utility to find the CD/DRIVE file and the I can see that the CD/DVD file is /dev/sr0.

    What can I do?

    Thanks

    Have you loaded the "restricted DVD" modules? Here's a howto:

    DRM sucks.
