i have been scouring the forums for what would seem like a simple answer. i am trying to use the gui mplayer. i have the path set at /mnt/dvdr0 in the advance tab under settings. when i click the dvd tab on the menu i get a black screen and thats it. mplayer locks up and the drive stays lit and i cant umount it. i can access the dvd via file manager so i know that it is mounting properly. as i said, i have looked this up and haven't found this particular issue. google doesn't come up with anything either. if i have missed something and it really has been covered then i appologize. in that event, please simply offer a link.
