View Full Version : [ubuntu] dvd playback trouble toshiba 1400-503 cyberblade xp ai1

hello, new to ubuntu...i installed ubuntu on my old toshiba satellite and there's been a couple of problem with the graphics card. i sorted out the screen resolution thanks to some other threads but it's still freezes or is jumpy when I play dvds. it does the menu ok, but not the movie. I've seen some comments saying it can't play dvds, but it played them just fine on windows - which i don't want ot go back to or have a dual option. any help?

toshiba satellite 1400-503, 495 MB RAM
graphics card: cyberblade xp ai1
ubuntu 8.10 with all updates
tried movie player, mplayer, vlc


btw i saw this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-211937.html, but i didn't want to change the xorg.conf file and update the modules without having inkling of what i'm doing there...i saw a message somewhere saying to beware...
