Good day,

Thanks to all that participated in this adventure.
After a lot of installing from suggestions from you I now have...:

mplayer    playing the dvd but only one picture shown.

vlc         the same as mplayer.

smplayer    playing the full video/audio.

Thanks to you I was able to learn something.
