What enabled me to watch DVDs (perfectly, BTW) is to go to the Medibuntu page (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu), install the repositories and key as instructed, then go further down the page, installing the libdvdcss2 library package, and then a little further down the page install the non-native codecs.

At first I was unable to get DVDs to play, but once I installed these packages they played without a hitch.

There's no simple way to "revert"; reinstallation is generally the best approach.

I just switched over to Mint. Much easier. That is the beauty of Linux.

any time you have a problem with software, run it in the terminal so we can get error reports and it will be easier to help

I've found a lot of problem with 9.04 too like this one.
