hello,
try to use kaffiene media player

douglas_smith suggests this article as an answer to your question:
FAQ #3: “Restricted Formats”.

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Alternatively:
sudo apt-get install VLC.

To make VLC default DVD player:
From a terminal type: gconf-editor
Click on the arrow to Expand Desktop
then Click on the arrow to Expand Gnome
Then click on Volume Manager
Look for autoplay dvd command on th right side of the screen
Double Click
The value should be "totem %M"
change it to "/usr/bin/vlc dvd://"
same thing for VCD: "/usr/bin/vlc vcd://"

Can you help with this problem?
