dvd playback not working too well


Well I have a T22 thinkpad running ubuntu 5.10 and I get the error "dvdnav_get_next_block". I have looked all over for this error and havent really found a fix for it, just threads like this saying they get the problem. I have tried to download different programs to run the dvd and they all fail after the licensing agreement. Any able to help me out?

P.S. there would happen to be a codec to run windows media 9 files would there? Like .wmv .wma?

licensing agreement?? have you just tried using mplayer and ignoring all the stupid dvd menu junk? much easier and seeing as you're getting dvdnav errors, avoiding dvdnav would presumably make it go away. as for codecs, get the codec pack from mplayer's site too which will cover most popular proprietry protocols. the files it provides are used by many other apps not just mplayer at all.

Well basically the dvd throws errors when it is supposed to load the menu. It is almost like it is not mounting the drive when it should. The beginning of the disc plays "Warning, copying this movie is illegal" ect and all of that legal crap. But after that the dvd spins down and xine/gine/vlc all close or throw that error. Would there be a way I can actually patch and use the dvd with the menus or is this an ongoing bug with ubuntu/debian? Thanks for you help.

Ok this is my last double post I swear. I got mplayer and it is the only program that actually was able to load the dvd and sort of play. Here is what I get for video and then audio cuts out after "video packets too much".
