Default What to do to watch moves on your PC dvd in Linux

Hi guys: today i learned one more thing that i did not know,since i'm not much of a movie watcher,and never tried to watch movies on my Pc and rarely watch on my Home system center,but today i had this dvd cd around and put it in the tray and pulled the VLC but error no video at all,and said for myself what the heck maybe my dvd player is too old or dvds wont play in Xubuntu or Linux!then i started to seach the web, that's why i say Google is your friend and it is._ and came across this site and now i can watch dvds in Linux,hope this helps anybody here.

Interesting. I never had to change regions or install CSS when playing DVDs using VLC (original factory DVDs, not copies).
But then again, maybe my DVDs simply weren't css encrypted.

Wow,it's great that u found ur answer!
Changing region works only if try 2 play an encrypt. DVD.
But try 2 keep ur VLC updated,that all!

no encrypted dvds, no problem. But I thought mplayer/vlc/etc. could use libdvdcss or the like to decode.
