Hi Thomas, 

I already installed and ran the .sh file. I rebooted
and tried VLC but the video was distorted. 

A strange sidenote: when I
tried with Xine, it gave an error that it "couldn't increase the nice
value by 1". As this computer is setup for realtime audio production,
perhaps there is a problem somewhere with priorities..??

my spontaneous guess would be that you haven't installed libdvdread yet,
try executing the following in a terminal:

Also, restart VLC after that and tell me if it worked?

Hi everyone,

installed. Although I use this pc primarily for music (low latency
kernel, etc), I wanted to watch some (commercial) DVDs. But I have had
problems and although I have installed the Ubuntu-restricted-extras
package, I cannot get a DVD to work right (I prefer using SMplayer,
although I also tried with VLC, Xine, and another called "Video").
