Hi
Ubuntu 8.10
When i try to play a dvd i can only play the part before the menu, everything else doesn't work. I've tried with media player, wine and xine but none of them can get past the language menu.

Ive tried every possible solution i found on the net, but nothing helps. Codecs are installed, and dvds are tested and working on other computer. I think it must be a problem with css, but i don't know what it can be.

Anyone have suggestions?

Thanks
Thor

sudo apt-get install vlc
