CD DVD Movies

I have the latest version of Zorin ultimate and it won't play off the shelf movies or music CD's. How do i make it do this?I think it might be libdvd files but i try to run script and terminal says command not found even if i copy and paste.What do i do?

Can you try:

sudo apt install libdvd-pkg

When finished, reconfigure and follow the prompts:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure libdvd-pkg

Aravisian I already have the latest libdvd installed. If i copy a movie it will play but if I put in a new one the error message says the movie can't be read. I dont understand. Dan

Was the DVD reader able to do so prior, but has lost the ability?

If I plug in my dvd drive to another computer it will play the movie just fine.
I have a laptop with UBUNTU 18.04 LTS and it works good with it. terminal said console not giving a driscriptor? thanks for your input I need it> dan

What Media Player are you using?

Aravisian Videos and VLC

Ok, can you try:
Remove this if it is present

sudo apt purge gstreamer1.0-vaapi

Then install this:

sudo apt install gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad

Aravisian I found my problem. I went to Synaptic pkg manager and I downloaded a Decryptor pkg for video and it worked just fine. Thank you for all your effort.
