Hi All!

Since upgrading from Ubuntu 10.10 to 12 and then to 13, I've got a problem with playing movies form DVD's. When I was using 10.10 version everything was fine, and I didn't have any problems with this issue. I am still using the same notebook with the same drive. DVDs with data are working fine.

I followed all the instructions posted here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...ts/PlayingDVDs . Nothing has worked for me.

When /dvd/sr0 is set VLC gives this:
Code:
libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 4.2.0
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.13 for DVD access
libdvdread: Could not open /dev/sr0 with libdvdcss.
