Do you want to play a DVD or view the content of a filesystem on DVD?
Several people have suggested ways to play a DVD. If you want to view the contents or filesystem on a DVD then you will first need to mount the dvd. You can mount a DVD via the cli;
~#mount /dev/Your_DVD /mnt/your_mount_point
~#ls /mnt/your_mount_point #do a 'man ls' to see options
The latter command will list the files for the filesystem.
You might need to add the -t along with the filesystem type for the mount command. Do a 'man mount' to get more information.
