I have a fairly nice xbuntu 13.10 recently installed on my desktop PC (six core AMD64, 16GB RAM, xubuntu on 128GB SSD, ASUS HD 7750 1GB silent video card). Wanting to tweak my xubuntu now. Having a problem playing DVD movies on my LG blu ray burner drive. Could use any help/suggestions. I have tried to do a little homework on this, but I am still at a dead end:
ubuntu 13.10 AMD64
my video player software installed: VLC, gxine, SMplayer, Mplayer, Banshee, Parole
i have installed: xubuntu-restricted-addons ubuntu-restricted-addons xubuntu-restricted extras libdvdread4 libdvdnav4 libbluray1 libzine1-ffmpeg libxine2-ffmpeg libquiktime2 mencoder libavcodec53 libopenexr6 libfaac0 gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
I already had created a symbolic link to /dev/dvd
if i insert a DVD (not bluray, just a simple dvd) movie (e.g. The Man Who Knew Too Little, or Eight Legged Freaks) the DVD icon shows on desktop with title of DVD movieCode:sudo ln -s /dev/sr0 /dev/dvd
if I try to play using gxine 0.5.905
Encrypted media stream detected
Media stream scrambled/encrypted
if I try to play using SMPlayer
Seems to accessa and read DVD movie then dvd drop stops being accessed.
if I try to play using VLC player

I choose default /dev/dvd to open and click the [Play] button

Playback failure: DVDRead could not read block 0.
