I have a DVD that wont work right. It plays an intro about 45 seconds ok and thats it. The time says 45 seconds total but the DVD has 4 gb on it like it should.I checked properties. The instructions mention playing it on
a dvd player or a computer dvd drive using Roxio,Sonic Power or Ulead.
Does this mean it will only work on the dvd drive using windows..???
Any Ubu players that will work different. Movie player didnt work.

Try VLC, it's an AMAZING media player.

sudo apt-get install vlc

Is it a Hollywood DVD? Let us know. If so then you will need to install the libdvdcss2 package from Medibuntu.

MPlayer should do the trick as well, whatever you prefer the most.
