Okay. Now's the time for more details. What kind of DVD videos are you

B

Commercial videos is where I have the problems.

Data DVD/CDs work okay.

There is no error messages in /var/log/messages, I run the command tail
-f /var/log/messages and get no output when I run VLC from command line.

$ vlc

VLC media player 1.0.4 Goldeneye

[0x1b24098] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use
'cvlc' to use vlc without interface.

I think this might be the problem. Right now I am watching a commercial DVD with VLC. (totem also works) What does `dmesg |tail -20' give you? On my system this is what I get when I put DVDs in my DVD drive.

PS: I am making a wild guess, could you try something like this to play your DVD: `vlc dvd:///dev/sr0'

btw, Seabiscuit is one awesome movie.
