I am still a new Linux user but catching on well. However, I am having trouble playing a clean USA NTSC region DVD movie of Star Wars The Phantom Menace In parole and also vlc. I tried everything from installing libdvd-pkg to updating, upgrading, and rebooting left and right! I even installed the css dvd lib even though and article said I did not need to. If it helps my Laptop DVD drive is a MATSHITADVD-RAM UJ8D3 (1.00) and is in /dev/sr0 (Read-Only). There has to be something i am missing... Thank you all for your time.
