There shouldn't be. As long as the DVD can be mounted everything
should work fine. There aren't - or at leest shouldn't be any issues
in mounting a dvd over a usb interface compared to doing so over an
ide or scsi type interface - at least in theory. Not having such a
device (usb dvd that is) my only caveat is that you are playing from
(comparatively) slower media (dvd) and you are bringing that data
through a comparatively slower interface, namely usb2.0.
In mplayer, there is a setting for adding a cache amount, which is
useful for playing files from slow(er) media. I think there is a
similar setting in VLC. You may need to increase that value - 256 or
512 seems to be a safe bet - I use those mostly when playing video
over the net (like from a streaming video site).
Look for the caching checkbox in (for instance) File; Open dialog box.
You can check it and see if adding a value helps.
