jaunty j - dvd won't play after codec/plug-ins installed
hello. pseudo newbie here... running jaunty 9.04...
so i got a dvd rom installed and all the proper codecs and plugins installed... and dvd's still won't play...
in both vlc and movie player what happens is the program goes to open the disc it flashes on the screen for a moment and then the program closes. same behavior with both programs. i went to check on my xorg file and it was blank...
vlc and movie player work fine for avi and xvid files... just not dvd's.
i also tried to use xbmc and while i got it to install ok... it wouldn't open saying something about 24 bit color depth and i have no idea how to change that...

Are these commercial DVDs or any DVD? When you say you've installed all the codecs and plugins, can you be more specific about what you installed and how you installed it? Do you have libdvdcss2 installed?
Install mplayer if you haven't, put in a DVD and from the command line run

it's a known issue:
it's my understanding that it's something that's a major problem with ati and intel chipsets... anyway... the linux box i was using was obsolete anyway so i upgraded and got a faster machine with a better video card so it's all good now.
thanks for your help!
p.s. i've had better luck w/ vlc than mplayer over the years on both my linux boxes and on my macs...
