debian wont play a video DVD

This is the first time I've installed Debian.
It's 2.6.32-5-amd64 #1 SMP Sun May 6 05:12:07 UTC 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I've got sound but Debian won't play my video DVDs.
Is there a simple fix for this problem ?

What app are you trying to play a DVD with?

For starters:
add the repo to your sources.list and install the libdvdcss2 package.
