Thanks Clay
This turned out to be my old enemy - libdvdcss - ha. What a memory I 
haven't got.
As soon as I installed libdvdcss2 from the repos all the media players 
started working.
  My next project is to find out how to convert a camera video file to a 
VIDEO-TS dvd so
that it will play on a TV video player - you may wish me luck.
