If you run mplayer in a terminal, does it work? What if you run gmplayer?

If you run
Code:
mplayer dvd://
or
Code:
mplayer /path/to/video/file
in a terminal, does it work?

Do you have libdvdcss3 installed (or libdvdcss2)? and have you run the install script in the directory?

In a terminal (as root) do this:
Code:
sh /usr/share/doc/libdvdread[1-4]/install-css.sh
Use tab completion to add the version number to libdvdread (I have version 4, you may have version 3). This will configure and download some files to enable libdvdcss.

Where I wrote [1-4], you will need to change that to the actual number. Type in "sh /usr/share/doc/libdvdread" and then hit the tab key and it will autocomplete with the correct number.

Cool, the whole command should be
Code:
sh /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh
. This will download some files and do some configuring. Then try to run a DVD - if it won't start, open the program's browser and open the video file (should end in .TS, IIRC) from there.
