How to play dvd in Ubuntu

Asked by William Houser on 2011-04-26

I have the latest version of ubuntu installed with a dual boot with windows 7 as the host. ive been able to use ubuntu for everything in my life except playing and authoring dvds.
Could someone please tell me what i need to install to provide dvd support? and how to go about installing it? I am a relatively new Linux user, and I am excited about the learning experience.
