Can't play DVD movies
 
VLC gives me this message

Playback failure:

I was trying to play Lord Of The Rings - The Fellowship Of The Ring. The basic dvd version, nothing fancy, not the Blu-Ray version.

I don't know what else to tell you.

Any/All help will be appreciated.

Thank You

Did you install the Medibuntu repo? http://www.medibuntu.org/

I think you will need to install libdvdcss2.

You might try installing the Ubuntu Restricted Extras package.

Do you have libdvdcss2 installed? I think that it's required to show
most of commercial movies on Linux.

Can't play DVD movies
 
In order for me to use VLC or any other program for that mattern I havr to choose /dev/sr0 (on my laptop at least) hope that this helps and that you have solved the problem. I think you can use gparted (or "disk utility") to check what your computer is assigning the dvd to. Great movie choice btw!
