Also it says that libdvdread can't open device w/ libdvdcss and libdvdread can't open /dev/hdc/ for reading and finally couldn't open DVD device /dev/hdc...any suggestions?
if you're trying to play dvd's in MPLayer, /dev/dvd should work.
The reason why you can't play DVD's is because you need the missing files you mentioned. It has to do with legal reasons or something so you have to go find those files. ONce you install them, then you can play DVD. My mplayer is set to /dev/dvd, I believe (I'mat work using NT).
