I run Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and have had no trouble with using my VLC media player until recently. I used to just plug in the DVD and play would begin automatically just like it is supposed to. But now VLC starts up and gives me the organge cone. Nothing else happens. What went wrong? Do I need to update something?
Edit: I just tried the update VLC PPA and it says I have the latest version already? I used synaptic package manager to upgrade everything that had an upgrade available. Seriously, what gives?
