Hello Grig,

to play dvd you need the package libdvdcss2 which is available on many different sites or on medibuntu repo therefor open a gnome-terminal and the:

gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list->and this to the file

deb http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ feisty free non-free
deb-src http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/ feisty free non-free

.->then add the key doing

wget -q http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

->now update the source list doing

sudo apt-get update

->and now install the needed package

sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2
