Setup the PLF repositories and download libdvdcss2.

libdvdcss2 is needed to play DVDs, but the case here is with video files that are not encrypted so I think it isn't a matter of libdvdcss2.

ananth4pk, what I suggest you to do is to run the video player from the terminal and look in the output for helpful error messages. Post all the output to the forum and we'll be able to see some hints. I also recommend you to install VLC (it's a fantastic media player). Also, let us know what your hardware is and video card.
