Read of this documentation which should get you going:


in short install ubuntu-restricted-extras package from software center

Then also open a terminal and type:

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get install libdvdread4; sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh; sudo apt-get -y upgrade

give your password when requested, you will not get any screen char typing the password, so type then press enter.

Can you help with this problem?
