To be able to play protected DVD's you first need to install the following package by executing only this 2 commands in the terminal:

# sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/intrepid.list --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list

# sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2

Hope it solves your problem

thanks to try to help me but non of thats links work can you have look for this ?

Those are not links, they are commands. do the following: Go to Applications (in the top menu) -> Accessories -> Terminal.
A black window will open, then you just have to pase the 2 commands i pasted above.

Paste the following (without quotes) and press the return key (Enter):
"sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/intrepid.list --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list"

once it finishes do the same but with this line:
"sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2"

again, once it finishes you should be able to play protected dvd's
