I have Jackalope 9.04.

When I click on open movie player to play a DVD I get a message that I need plugins called DVD Sources.

What is DVD Sources and where do I get it?

Thanks
Dave

Did you install libdvdcss2?

No I didn't. I went to the synaptic manager and it is not on the list. Under the search window I typed it in and got a ubuntu restricted package. So I installed that. Still no joy.

Tried mythtv and crashed so bad I had to pull the plug to get out of it.

Somewhen to day I installed 'gxine' and that worked, so now I can take my defensive driving course.

Thanks for replying.
