Asked by John Kelly on 2012-10-29

vlc not working having upgraded to 12.10.
Installed Ubuntu Restricted Extras and it still doesnt work.
First hint of anything amiss was when presented with a box from author saying save and continue it seemed to stick and do nothing.
Tried different kinds of dvd still no show
thanks for help
