Thumbs down vlc crashes all the time - how to fix?

running vlc in a terminal i get this message:
ungua@ungua:~> vlc
VLC media player 0.8.5 Janus
libdvdnav: Using dvdnav version 0.1.10 from
libdvdread: Using libdvdcss version 1.2.9 for DVD access
libdvdread: Couldn't find device name.
libdvdnav: Can't read name block. Probably not a DVD-ROM device.
libdvdnav: Unable to find map file '/home/ungua/.dvdnav/.map'
libdvdnav:DVDOpenFilePath:findDVDFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO failed
libdvdnav:DVDOpenFilePath:findDVDFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.BUP failed
libdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO.
libdvdnav: vm: faild to read VIDEO_TS.IFO

** (.:14404): CRITICAL **: gtk_pizza_set_size: assertion `pizza != NULL' failed
"minnesegmentsfeil" means something like a-part-of-the-memory-failed. is this a hardware problem!?


edit: another one:
[00001039] freetype private error: failed to load font file /usr/share/fonts/truetype/freefont/FreeSerifBold.ttf
what does a .ttf-file have to do with a videoplayer!? i use kaffeine now instead...

An innocent advice from my end, please left using vlc and use mplayer instead. The same advice I also got a couple of months ago in such a forum, and I am really happy with mplayer.

If the advice do not suit you, please ignore this post.

thank you for your advice! but what's wrong with vlc? can mplayer open folders? i have a dvd full with videos from a badminton-tournament, i'd very much like just to watch them in a row.
