Installing loads of media players won't do anything, you haven't nstalled the DVD decoder so ANY player you add will not be able to play DVD.

Shows the 2 commands you need, then any player will play DVD

thank you forgot about this after upgrade thanks

Ubuntu 12.04
libdvdread4 installed.

movie player. "could not read DVD- encrypted- decryption library not installed.

VLC with NO DISC MENUS: DVD could not be read-1/4 blocks@0x01

The PC plays same DVDs with VLC running Win XP- so DVD ROM not problem. No extra decryption needed for VLC on XP:

Any ideas??
