    http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:H...u_insert_a_DVD

    Everything is working good, when i inserted a DVD in my Laptop VLC started but after few seconds it closed by itself and cannot see any DVD.

    My questions is, how can i fix this problem?,

    Do you have libdvdcss, libdvdread, and libnav?

    following these steps:
    i don't think that's the best way to set vlc as a default choice, but what's done is done. (that's not to say it won't work) Go back to where you set the Exec=vlc %f and change it to Exec=vlc %m (or set it back to %U)
    Also go edit menus -> click sound and video -> on the right side - right click vlc -> properties and change launch command to vlc %m.

    note there is a space between vlc and %m
    And as noted above you must have libdvdcss2 (medibuntu)

    You could try opening vlc from the terminal, trying a disk and posting the errors.
    If you don't know whether a region has been set on the drive then install regionset and check. (only needs to have been set once)

    Thanks mc4man for taking the time to help me.

    Here is what i got for regionset output

    Code:
    gabby@gabby-laptop:~$ regionset
    regionset version 0.1 -- reads/sets region code on DVD drives
    Current Region Code settings:
    RPC Phase: II
    type: SET
    vendor resets available: 4
    user controlled changes resets available: 4
    drive plays discs from region(s): 1, mask=0xFE
    
    Would you like to change the region setting of your drive? [y/n]:n
    gabby@gabby-laptop:~$
    Also, when i trying to open from the terminal i don't get any error, vlc opened fine, here is a pic:



    But when i put a DVD vlc opened but crash after few seconds, i was reading this post:

    Description: multimedia player and streamer
     VLC is the VideoLAN project's media player. It plays MPEG, MPEG2, MPEG4,
     DivX, MOV, WMV, QuickTime, mp3, Ogg/Vorbis files, DVDs, VCDs, and multimedia
     streams from various network sources.
     .
     VLC can also be used as a streaming server that duplicates the stream it
     reads and multicasts them through the network to other clients, or serves
     them through HTTP.
     .
     VLC has support for on-the-fly transcoding of audio and video formats, either
     for broadcasting purposes or for movie format transformations. Support for
     most output methods is provided by this package, but features can be added
     by installing additional audio plugins (vlc-plugin-esd, vlc-plugin-sdl,
     vlc-plugin-arts, vlc-plugin-pulse) or video plugins (vlc-plugin-sdl,
     vlc-plugin-ggi, vlc-plugin-glide, vlc-plugin-svgalib). There is also a web
     browser plugin in the mozilla-plugin-vlc package.

    Re: Problems with VLC ( closed after insert DVD)

    vlc is a very tricky player and i have never recomended it alto lots of people do for some reason, I recomend GOM but it only works with windows wine becuase is made for windows. You might have trouble getting codects to install but it is possable.

    Re: Problems with VLC ( closed after insert DVD)

    I've had a similar problem before, but installing libdvdcss2 worked for me.

    Try this topic, http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=739636

    Don't resort to wine unless you really really have to. ( Which you shouldn't - VLC should work fine )

    EDIT: Also, did DVDs work in VLC before you followed that guide?
