Parole on Xubuntu 10.10 won't play DVD

Asked by J Slade

After installing Xubuntu 10.10 (errors raised - not sure where logged) Parole won't play DVDs. Instead it says "A DVD source plugin is required to play this stream, but not installed." Not being able to find any documentation on this software - I'm lost.
