View Full Version : [ubuntu] Totem - "Could not read from resource."

May 1st, 2010, 04:16 AM
Ubuntu 10.04 with proprietary nvidia drivers enabled. Ubuntu restricted extras also installed.

Can't play DVDs on Ubuntu. Totem gives the "Could not read from resource." when trying to load a DVD. VLC won't load it either.

Any packages I am missing? The movie is Pirates of the Caribbean if that matters at all.

Maybe you don't have libdvdcss2 installed, if not then running this in a terminal will install it for you

sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh

If you're not happy with totem's dvd playback abilities then try vlc

sudo apt-get install vlc
