I've never had a great deal of luck with using mplayer to play DVDs.
For one thing, if it ever shows the DVD menu, it only flashes up for a
brief moment.  You've got to faff around with picking the right
title/chapter to play from the mplayer menu.

Probably because MPlayer has never fully supported DVD menus or
navigation see: http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/faq.html

Q: What about DVD navigation/menus?
A: MPlayer does not support DVD menus due to serious architectural
limitations that prevent proper handling of still images and
interactive content. If you want to have fancy menus, you will have to
use another player like xine, vlc or Ogle. If you want to see DVD
navigation in MPlayer you will have to implement it yourself, but be
aware that it is a major undertaking
