Well, here’s another thread I won’t get any answer on…

I put a movie dvd (store bought) in my dvd player and chose VLC when it offered and it will not play!

I went through the settings and can’t seem to figure out how to get it to work.

Most likely, I’m now going back to Mageia KDE. I have it on my other pc and it just seems to do
the things I need an OS to do. I was hoping for this one to work out… but it is problem after problem
and rarely get any help which is the BIG decision maker!

Could that be a problem with the Medibuntu repository? That’s where the libdvdcss2 package comes from, which allows programs like VLC to read DVDs while ignoring regions.

In any case, the error output of VLC should shed more light on the problem.
